Just a pretty picture of my lilac bush today. I have struggled for 6 years to keep this it alive because there is a hackberry tree growing up the middle of it, which would take over if I let it. Every two months or so in the growing season I have to hack away at the nasty thing, trying to kill it, and I never win. The lilac bush only blooms for about 6 days each year, so it is a lot of work for comparably little return. But, the smell is heavenly, and most of the time, it is worth it.
