Finally Lilacs!

We planted lilac bushes approximately 4 years ago.  I love to see and smell them in the early summer when everything is coming to life! 

The first year the plants were still getting established so the blooms were few and far between....

The second year the deer ate the buds off during the Winter so we had no blooms...

The third year the Spring frost killed any flower buds that were looking promising.......

But this year - we have success; the first year where I was able to put a bouquet of lilac flowers in a vase on my table!
