Gather ye lilacs while ye may

This is my second year growing lilacs, and they are starting to bloom!  I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

All I want to do is sit under them and breathe deeply.   I go out and visit them multiple times a day.  Sometimes I wonder if this is normal.

And then I think: Normal is overrated.  The bloom season is short, very short.  I’m going to savor it.

  1. They’re beautiful! You have quite the green thumb. I tried growing lilacs in San Jose and they were a flop! My lilacs up here are still covered in snow but the day is coming…..
