This lilac was started from shoots that I pulled up from my mom's and started in flower pots. It takes this particular species about 7 years to bloom so I am constantly starting lilacs each spring and by next year, I should have 2 more ready to bloom. This is an old-fashioned lilac that nobody knows the real name of and the smell is so strong that it can be overwhelming when too large a bouquet is placed in a small room!
How did one tulip get this all-alone spot when it's sisters are many feet away? Well, you can thank my squirrels, or chipmunks for this little surprise. They dig them up and move them. I don't have trouble anymore with this since we got Rebel as he has turned out to be quite the squirrel dog.
