First Lilac

Isn't this special? My daughter planted a lilac bush last year. It wasn't very big but it has doubled in size this year and lo and behold we got our first two lilacs come into bloom this spring. I can't wait for it to grow into something substantial. I love lilacs and their beautiful scent. And we can get to appreciate
their beauty as it is planted across the backyard in view of our living room windows.
My garden consists of hanging baskets, as bending down and over garden plants is past me now, so I need them at a level to care for them. Hubby keeps saying he will build me some flower boxes at waist level, but I haven't seen them yet. Oh well, summer is coming once again. Maybe this year.
