The last of the lilacs have been clipped, just before the last blooms fade. Most have turned in the afternoon sun, or dropped their petals, but there are still a few late blooms lingering.
Another short but glorious season.
The lilacs usually give way to the peonies, but sadly, there are no peonies growing on our property. That will of course change as I intend to plant rows for cutting, but for this year, at least there are a few local growers taunting us with photos of their swelling buds so close to blooming.
