Poor Lilac bush

When we first moved into our house, I wanted a lilac tree that would get about 15 feet and have beautiful limgs of wonderful smelling lilac blooms. I guess I pictured something like this:

However, we had a low bush that did bloom and smell good, but just grew low to the ground and sent out runners and was basicallhy a mess.

So. . . Michael decided that enough was enough. He worked hard to get it dug up and out. Now we are planting a fig tree in there instead!

  1. My parents have lilac bushes about halfway down the side of their half acre. It's become almost like a hedge of lilacs over the years. Every May, I think about how lovely they must be smelling and get a little homesick. Yankee makes a lilac candle, so that's about as close as I get. Sorry your bush didn't work out!
