Surprise! Lilacs!

The trees in my back yard are surrounded by a lot of really random brush. One of them sort of looked like it might be a lilac bush that had grown beyond being productive. Sure enough, this spring my suspicion was confirmed and way up high there are a few lilac blossoms. I’m going to trim this bush all the way down this fall and hopefully train it back into being a nice looking lilac for next year.

    That’s what we are going to do! We discovered we had one when we trimmed the trees last summer, and this spring it bloomed for the first time (finally enough sun). It’s really ugly, so I’m going to trim it down and ‘start over’.
