Lilac Time

It's been really cold & windy here for the first few days of May, but the lilacs are still blooming.
I finally found that banging the bottom of the stems with a hammer to crush them was the trick to getting the flowers to last more than a day.
These are the pale lilacs, the white and darker purple weren't open yet.


  1. I love lilacs! I wish they stayed around longer. I wish I had some!

  2. You have a nice big backyard, plant some!
