It must have been all the rain we've had recently ...
our lilac has bloomed it seems
found end of season while strolling through the garden center
sitting in the corner for under $2.00
she looked like she had sat there for a while poor thing
needing a good pruning and watering & a spot to put down roots.
that was 27 years ago and she has never disappointed
her branches hang over our kitchen window, and have created a lovely little archway as we step off our deck into the garden ...
there is always a bird (or two or more) resting on her thick sturdy branches,
the squirrels love to climb on one in particular and look into our kitchen :-D
and now, in bloom, our entire garden will be filled with the intoxicating aroma of her blooms.
I will clip some here and there to bring inside.
a tiny first of the season sprig xo
In my garden
there is a large place
My garden of flowers
is also my garden
The thoughts grow
as freely as the flowers
and the dreams
are as beautiful.
