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.. :)

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.

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.

@Carla They seem to like our sandy soil. Yours may be too, rich.

I think you're right. We've had trouble growing tomatoes too.

@StarzAbove 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:)

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.

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!

Here, they are belated, due to the cold snaps between last month and this month, but by now, the first flowers start to bloom.

also called summer lilac)
