Lilacs

I have the blackest thumb in town.  Yet, there is one – and only one – flower I have not managed to kill yet.  We have some lilac bushes in our side yard.  They are not thriving, but they are not dead either.  They bloom for one week a year.  They started blooming this week.  It looks like we may have lilac’s in bloom this year for Easter.  How fun!
