Our neighbor cut down a tree early this year and when it came down,
even though we didn't see it happen,
a branch must have landed smack on top of the Miss Kim lilac bush.
I found the spilt branch and disheveled bush a few days later.
On my "to- do list" was to get out the lopers
and trim off the spilt branches.
That never happened.
So on Wednesday when I looked in the back yard,
the whole bush laid heavy on the ground,
unable to hold the weight of the full blossoms.
Time to trim.
I never cut off whole branches of lilacs and bring them inside.
Just seems to selfish.
But I love the full look and seeing the lushness,
and the fragrance.
So today ...
just enjoy their majesty around the house.
And in the garden.
