Since Saturday was beautiful, not cold, 41* and not snowing, we decided now was the time to trim up the 90 year old lilac.
We removed all the winter damaged branches, all the suckers
Thereby, giving a new shape to a very old tree
Lilacs are really bushes, but Terry’s grandfather trimmed this into a tree.
I took some of the trimmed branches and put them into warm water in the house.
I want to do this as Far Side, Own a Morgan, and others suggested it to see if I can get some to grow roots.
If I can I will plant a few more bushes in the yard along the canal bank.
I will tell you about the canal bank in another post.
Monkey, the cat, liked to help me. Sam and Fuzzy were way too busy to spend time picking up branches.
It is snowing here as I write this, big wet flakes. It’s beautiful. The flakes really aren’t sticking and even if they do the time of 20* weather is over. The days are growing longer and longer. I saw two robins yesterday. I consider this a spring snow shower, bringing moisture to the high country from which we get our water.
Have a nice weekend everyone!
