Lilac Update

Over the weekend, I went to the beach.

I went in the back yard.

My Lilacs were still there.

The wire had not been torn down by the deer.

In fact, there was no damage at all.

Maybe the deer have decided to go elsewhere.

I hope.
I took a pic for you to see the progress.

Next time I get to the beach, maybe my buds will be in bloom.

This gave me peace which I am always looking for.

That is cool.... I hope they make it. There was a big lilac bush in my backyard growing up but you don't see them a lot in the desert. I would love to have some!

That's GREAT! I'm glad, and I hope they make it undisturbed. I asked my hubby if our climate was right for lilacs and he said it is, I'll have to look in to getting one in our front yard in your honor.

What a sweet and happy sight that must have been for you!

Glad your lilacs are coming up! They bring back so many memories for me and I am glad we have a bush in our yard once again.

Mom has a tiny Syringa meyeri which is in full bloom right now and a "bigger" shrub (still in a pot though) of the vulgaris type called "Président Poincaré" which has already finished blooming. She bought the latter one blooming 4 or 5 years ago and it never bloomed again. This year it made up for everything with 25 blooms!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
