One day soon I hope our grove will be as pretty as this bush
I named my blog Lilac Lane Cottage because we have a long grove of lilac bushes that follows our lane from the road to our cottage. We moved to the country last June so we have never seen the grove in bloom but I can just imagine how pretty it must be and the scent...I can smell it now! The bushes are starting to leaf out an I find myself watching the weather closely to see if there is a chance we could have a freeze. It was sunny when I got up but the weatherman is predicting rain for this afternoon. As long as we don't get hail I'll be happy! Last year a killer frost hit while the former owners lived here and unfortunately the lilac buds froze and so there were only a few small blossoms that opened up. This year I plan to throw sheets over the grove along the lane to protect them as best I can if the weatherman gives us a frost warning....I just hope I have enough sheet's to do any good! If all goes well I will be able to replace the main picture of my blog with the grove in full bloom....keep your fingers crossed please!
