But the good news is, after about four years of no blossoms, only leaves, my three lilac bushes - Lenni, Lili, and Lila - are blooming again!
I am overjoyed. It is one of my favorite plants. It smells so good, wish I had a scratch-and-sniff feature.
I will cut some and make a bouquet or two. I am happy that they survived the polar vortex this winter. I think the reason they bloomed again is that I have left them "au natural" - no clipping for several seasons. My landscaper used to mow them down!
I had to seriously trim back my fig tree. Francesca, as I named her, has not been producing any edible fruit but had gotten so out of proportion. It is a little sad to see her in this state. Maybe she will come back eventually, and bear some fruit.
Hope your garden is making you happy!
