Alissa's Flowers

Japanese Lilac

In the thirteen years we've been here,
our Syringa reticulata had blossomed only twice.
2010 was the last time we beheld its delicate white flowers.
In 2013, it hardly produced any leaves, so Alissa culled it.

Our 2nd summer at this house
Small boy, small dog, and
small japanese lilac tree
Summer, 2001
You wouldn't believe how sweet the smell...

Now, that's a tree.

Rest in Peace, poor little Japanese Lilac...
