I have been waiting for nearly a year to see the lilac groves on our farm bloom. Last year we moved to the property around the middle of June ...too late to see any lilacs in bloom plus we had a deep freeze in early spring that killed most of the lilac and fruit tree blossoms. As a result there were really no lilac blossoms for the former owners to enjoy before they moved and certainly NO fruit after we moved in. This year however the fruit tree's are COVERED in blossoms and best of all for me....the lilac bushes have exceeded my expectations and are absolutely bursting with blossoms about to open. For the last two days I have been watching the groves carefully and have noticed that some of the buds are starting to open...I'm THRILLED! I even stuck my nose close and OH MY....the aroma is wonderful...if I could just bottle it up I'd be very happy. I can just imagine what it will be like when the whole grove to the south and west of us is in full bloom...I can't wait!!!
