Achievement Unlocked: lilacs from Mother's Day to Father's Day [Jun. 15th, 2014|10:23 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Lilacs bloom in May, usually around Mother's Day. Ours started blooming a few days before, and we had lilacs in full bloom with full scent by Mother's Day. Now, we have a range of different lilac bushes, from early bloomers to late bloomers -- and I had to start deadheading spent blooms on the final one a couple days ago. However, there are still a decent number left, and I won't finish deadheading for another day or two.

This means that I've had fully blooming lilacs, fully scented, for over a month. From before Mother's Day to after Father's Day.

... and for your wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary, by the way (sorry I didn't say anything on the actual day).

Oh, lilacs! My favorite flowers, and something I seriously miss.
