Eye Candy Friday

These two underachieving lilac bushes in our backyard were dangerously close to losing their lives this year.  They haven’t bloomed once the 5 years we’ve lived here!  But this year is proving to be a wonderful surprise for these bushes and the strawberries!  I haven’t had lilacs in so long, I had forgotten how sweet and perfect they smell!  They’re right outside my office window and I’m enjoying them more than you can imagine! 

So glad we didn’t get around to uprooting them!

And the strawberries that have produced a total of 1/ 2 a dozen berries in three years, must have 200 tiny berries on them right now.  We’re going to put a fence around them this weekend in hopes of keeping puppies out of them.  I’m already thinking of freezer jam!!
