The other day, I looked out a window on the side of the house
where most of the lilac bushes are and couldn't believe my eyes.
One of the lilacs is sporting a few blooms! Don't they know that
this is fall, not spring? This is the first time this has happened, and they are not of the repeat blooming variety. Most of my lilacs are
from starts that I brought from our previous residence. Anyone else have this happen before?
It seems a lot of my flowers have gotten their second wind, so to speak. The zinnias have perked up and all of the Knockout Roses are blooming prettily. The Salvia, Stella D'Oros and others are blooming, too.
The weather is supposed to really cool off by the weekend with night time temps in the 30's, so I know it is almost time to say goodbye to all the lovely flowers. They made a valiant effort this year, in the unrelenting heat and drought, to provide spots of color and beauty. As much as I love Fall, I look forward to Spring and to seeing new growth and beautiful new blooms once again.
Until next time...
