I'm doing a little happy dance right now! Why? Well, back in October, I saw that someone in Brooklyn was giving away their lilac bush that they had in their backyard. They were re-landscaping their yard and did not want the lilac any longer. I love, love, love lilacs, and so I convinced my husband into going with me to dig it up from their yard and re-locate the bush into our yard. The process wasn't as easy as I thought it would be, here's the story about that how we got this lilac. Seeing these buds on the lilac makes it all worthwhile! I was so worried that the plant wouldn't survive the transplant. We literally had to dig and pull it out of the ground, and it had well established roots, and we had to cut a lot of the roots to remove it. It was backbreaking work, but seeing these buds makes me so very happy.
