Sharing these from the front yard.
These beautiful lilacs grow in the front yard, a small but older bush in the far corner.
For some reason I have been forgetting about them, even though I love lilacs.
We have had a break in the rain, with one warm day. Not wanting to sound like I am complaining about the sun, but 60 degrees to 85 degrees is a big jump. Warmer than expected, especially for too much weed pulling! But in the warmth of the sun, and the frustration regarding how many weeds grow, even where food will not...........it was time to take some strong action.
On a sad note, the rhubarb is all but dead. I have cinder blocks and I am going to make a raised bed and transplant those guys. Lots of compost and new dirt, that drains well. I also think the cinder blocks will heat up during the day and add warmth to help with growing. Another experiment to try.
As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello.
I appreciate your time and your comments.
