Look! Look look look!

OK, I might be just a little excited. You see, five years ago I bought a beautiful french lilac shrub. You know, the ones where the flowers are edged in white? They are so pretty. Only thing was, it was very unhappy where I first planted it and so I had to move it to the backyard. And it didn’t like that too much. In fact, I was starting to think my pretty lilac would never actually flower. But guess what? There are buds! Buds galore! See?

They are so pretty even as buds, and I was like a kid in a candy store when I saw them the other day.



  1. Wow! This is so exciting! I know ‘xactly how you feel :) They are so pretty! Hope to see more pics in full bloom.

  2. gorgeous buds!
    and i will second kim’s comment – i hope we’ll get to see more pictures when they’re in full bloom!!

  3. super exciting!
    i adore lilacs- they are so tied to home for me. can’t wait to see how gorgeous yours are bound to be!

  4. Lilac blooms are definitely something to be excited about…and so exciting that your plant finally seems happy! They are the thing I look forward to the most in spring. We have a row of them separating our property from our neighbors and the air just drips with the scent of their blooms.

  5. I love it when that happens!
