Pruning and Enjoying Lilacs

I love this time of the year because every time I walk out into our backyard, I am overwhelmed with the amazing aromas in the air from our lilacs and blooming fruit trees.  It absolutely smells like there is a perfume in the air!  We were blessed to acquire 9 enormous lilac bushes when we purchased our property 4 years ago.  Accordingly, I have been doing lots of research on how to care for them.  So, today, I am going to share with you some suggestions about Pruning and Enjoying Lilacs and how to keep them flourishing.

Pruning and Enjoying Lilacs

Mother’s Day was yesterday, so I made this for our living room from cuttings from three of my bushes.  I like mixing the different varieties we have to add a little more interest!  I am sitting here looking at them now as I write this post.  You should smell how lovely it is in here!
