Yesterday I helped Mom with her gardens.
The night before, Country Guy used the truck to pull out a big, old, mostly dead, lilac bush in the area in front of her house. So before we got too dirty working outside, Mom & I checked with several nurseries to find a suitable replacement. She wanted something already as large as possible, because the birds used the other bush as a perch when they were waiting their turn at her bird feeders. We found a nice Persian lilac in full bloom and planted it where the other one had been. Isn't it beautiful?
