We have lilacs!

We were very happy to recently discover that two of the bushes in our backyard are lilacs. Until they started to bloom last week we thought they were just big, ugly, overgrown bushes. So, what a surprise. And what a delight!


And look what I found while I was out there with my camera:

What a wonderful surprise. Good thing you hadn't dug the "ugly" bushes out of the ground!! I've had "spring helpers" pull out perennials that they thought were weeds.
