My sweet tooth must be acting up again. Ever since I saw a beautiful lilac tree blooming years ago in a friend's yard in far east Austin I've wanted one. Well today was the day.
I was just browsing the aisle of Sutherland's nursery and spotted one (Syringa vulgaris 'Ludwig Von Spaeth'). I read that they enjoy alkaline soils and I've got plenty of that.
Why don't we see more of these trees around central Texas?
Also picked up my second dwarf Pomegranate because the first one proved very hardy and has done so well on the southeast corner of my house.
Transplanted my young brug today, painted my garden bench a spring green, prepared a raised veggie bed, took a nap in the hammock, and so many other things. I LOVE Spring!
