I've got a thing for lilacs. There are 6 bushes in my garden, which is definitely on the small side, and I never regret having planted that many.
Their is nothing like their fragrance. I spend a lot of time just burying my nose in the blooms because I cannot get enough of their scent.
Even though lilacs don't do well as cut flowers, I still bring a few branches inside. I figure I'm going to have the prune the dead ones anyways, so why not? At least that's my rationale. :) They rarely last more than a couple of days but it's still worth it.
Have a wonderful weekend! See you next week.
