So are the allergies...
Fortunately....i dont suffer from them.
I'm glad you don't..
For the last week, i've been waking up with one side of my face stopped up..
Im sorry dd. I dont know where you are, but i hope it is over for you soon.:[
Thanks...I'll make it through again
It does, i use those breathe right strips, they help.
I try not to take medicine.
If i get a headache for a while, then i will.
Dandy Don : Those nose strips my mom used those but they feel too weird for me - how did you get used to them :?)
They do feel weird.
I got used to them because they help me breathe better when i'm sleeping and i don't have to use any kind of medicine or nasal spray.. :)
I have various shades of purple, pink and a few white. When they go full, i will snap a pic. Behind the house is packed with them.:)
I noticed that last Friday... Lilacs, Tiger Lily's, Lily of the Valleys, and Daisies...what more could you ask for?
You get tigers, already? Mine dont bloom till late june! Those liitle lily of the valley, just love them. Little violets, too.
This part of the world is awoken, and showing us its colors....gotta love it:)!
No Tigers yet...but it all begins with the Lilacs...
If you love Lily of the Valleys as much as I do... I buy Dior's Diorissimo...which is as close to their fragrance as I could come.... Sometimes I just spray it around.
I remember coming home from school and there would be a vase full of something on the table... Lovely.
I have them surounding the foundation of the house. They spead like crazy. Like the hyacinths(sp?). I almost get teary when they pop up where i mow. I have a huge patch of the hyacinths (again, sp?) By my bird bath and feeders, i usually mow there, right now...just cannot
I miss having them around
Thank you, ser ;)
Oh I love lilacs, but I can't get them to grow in my yard. But my peonies are in bloom and so are my yellow day lilies.
They seem to like our sandy soil.
Yours may be too, rich.
I think you're right. We've had trouble growing tomatoes too.
Indiana has such dark soil. Has to be full of nutrients. Too full for some species, maybe.
Where we lived before, we had a huge garden, and even a lilac bush, but now we're about 20 miles north of where we used to live and can't get some things to grow.....our landscaping does fine but not certain flowering shrubs or veggies....so we have given up.
When you have to go to lengths like digging a four foot hole to mix the proper soils, it is better to just let nature decide:)
Exactly. Plus, we have problems with the deer and rabbits wanting to eat our plants. lol
Tomatoes need coffee grounds mixed into the garden, get the free grounds at starbucks. I have a special compost pile just for my tommies.
We've given up on a garden, plus, we have a Farmer's Market in our area every Tuesday with fresh veggies and fruit.
Im a couple of hundred miles north. Mine are just beginning to open up.
Love it...love it!
I have a few that are trees. One is...hmmm, 20' tall, maybe. It is a mass of lilac in the back. They are certainly prolific. Shoots abound.
Came down? Is it still a baby?
I envy all you that have lilacs they are my very favorite Thank goodness cross the street has some I can see in July when they start blooming up here in maine.
Haven't had the chance to smell any lilacs yet this year. I bet yours smell heavenly when they bloom! Can't wait for the photos. In my area are lilies-of-the-Nile, various poppies, wisterias, violets, horsechestnuts, California buckeyes, irises...too many to list!
Bird of paradise is one of my favorites.
Yes the aroma of fresh lilac is wonderful.
I love lilacs they are no place near ready here in Maine.
Here, they are belated, due to the cold snaps between last month and this month, but by now, the first flowers start to bloom.
About the lilac:
(not to be confused with the butterfly tree, Budleja davidii: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddleja
also called summer lilac)
