Lovely Lilac

I have photos of more flowers. I know there's been a lot around here lately. Sorry. No, actually I'm not. Definitely not sorry. It's spring! But about these flowers...

These are just gorgeous. Lilac. Presented to me by my lovely mother-in-law from a garden (if you could call it that) that gets no attention at all. No watering, no fertilising and only a rare pruning occurs. Oh, hang on, oops. Did you think I meant the garden belonged to her? That she doesn't water, fertilise or prune? Oh, how badly does that read? It's not my lovely mother-in-laws garden, you silly billy! She gives hers attention. Her pansies are still smiling at us every time we visit... And, she reads this very blog too! ;-)

But, how about this? These flowers from the garden where no-one goes. Phew.

Wish they came from my garden...

So I could cut them whilst barefoot and in my pajamas, bring them inside, plonk them in a (white) jug and take thousands of photos from every conceivable angle. Aaah, just lovely. Well, if they grow in a garden that no-one goes to surely I could grow them in my garden, don't you think?! I wonder how you propagate lilac... anyone know??? I might have to spend some time on google and try my hand. Am pretty sure it won't be quite as easy as this method for rosemary. BTW - seems we have some success with the rosemary, will have to update you when they have grown up a bit more, they are alive. Well, some of them are...

Happy Monday!
