Lilac Flowers (At Last)


I saw these Lilac tree flower buds yesterday. I have waited over a year, so i was excited. Last year there were all leaves, but no flowers!
I cannot wait to see the Tree flowering.It is in a giant pot, waiting to be moved.
One day I will plant it, and see it flower for many years to come.
The weather is strange fluctauting between sunshine, to cold wind, to rain, and just now hailstones.
We dug the new houses border yesterday, but it has been too cold and wet to plant the new plants we bought.
I am working the next three days so it may not be untill next week. I am off to buy a new walk in greenhouse soon. The Chillis, Tomatos, Pansys, Snapdragons, and Busy Lizzies are waiting to move into the greenhouse, once I have put it together..

Your patience has paid off! I wait every year for the lilacs to bloom and get rewarded with a couple tiny blossoms. I still dream I will get the exuberant bush it was when I fell in love with it at the nursery!

I am excited for you. There is nothing better than the fragrance of lilacs.
