Lilac Bush Acclimated


Our lilac bush arrived as a little thing on Mother’s Day in 2010. It was then in bloom. Indeed I have a picture of it blooming taken, before it was planted, because a butterfly had landed on it to get some nourishment in the early season. Plants are sometimes seriously traumatized after their passage through the Commercial System to their intended home in the Real World. This happened to our lilac bush. It failed to provide flowers in 2011 and again in 2012, but this year, finally—having grown nearly triple in size—it finally feels at home and this Spring returned to its natural cycle.
