A Few Surprises and Some Garlic

This is the little lilac I purchase back in March.  It had blooms for awhile, then they died off, as lilacs do.  So I was surprised to see that it had blossoms on it again!  Luckily, being the lazy gardener I am, I had left the tag on it.  Sure enough, it blooms several times in a season.  This was a delightful surprise!  I may even get to make lilac jelly!

Also catching my eye today was the ginger.  This is a terrible picture, but we have sproutage!  That ginger has been out in the container for months and hasn't done a blessed thing.  So now I'm excited.
The three blueberries the birds haven't gotten to:
Finally dug up some decent sized garlic bulbs!  Sometime this week I need to harvest the rest, as long as I know the rain will hold off.
Also recently harvested is a ton of beautiful lavender, but that's another post for another day.  I've got a couple different projects planned for it.


  1. Too cool about the lilac! That's the first thing I'm planting when I move back to a cooler climate! What variety is it?

    So what are you going to do with your "blueberry harvest"? Pie, muffins, cobbler... LOL

  2. It's a "Boomerang" Lilac, which makes perfect sense because it 'comes back' :-)
