In the yard

Far Guy’s Lilac finally bloomed.  I am not sure what kind of Lilac it is?  Could be a late Lilac. It has droopy flowers.  I am not sure where he got it from..it could have been one of the rejects from when we sold shrubs.

The Lilac June 4

We need rain..it rained up north but not here.  It spit some rain..if you can even call it spit.

I bought this piece of garden art for Far Guy a number of years ago.  It is in his wild garden this year where some really strange things are growing. He has a plant I have never seen before.  As soon as it blooms I will take a photo of it. He says he didn’t plant it so a bird must have pooped the seed there:)

  4. I planted the same lilac in my yard because it does not sucker like the purple lilacs. It blooms a good month after the purple variety and doesn't really smell, which I miss.

  5. I love the garden art work. I have a wild garden also. When I bring something home from the woods, and transplant it there, the Mr. says I'm re-arranging the woods. Have a wonderful day!

  6. That is an interesting lilac, a little different looking. And the garden art is really pretty! Hope to see the bloom soon. You must be all recovered from being sick, since you didn't mention it. :-)

  7. Very interesting lilac! I love Far Guys garden art. No rain here either, but then again it never rains here just pours and then we flood so I guess I would rather water my flowers by hand.

  8. Hi Connie, I think the lilac is beautiful. I have never seen one exactly like that. The garden art is very unique!

    We are over 4 inches below on the rain here in central Illinois too.

  9. You can have some of our rain! My corrals have yet to dry completely this year, and last night it rained all night, I'm having a tough time getting my lawn mowed regularly it's so wet.

  10. Well, I like the garden art but never thought about birds delivering seeds through poop...hmmmm will have to think about that one.

  11. Watch out, Chance, you are about to be crushed!
    Far Guy's Lilac is very pretty. Does it have an odor? That might help identify it.
    I'm loving seeing our yard come back to life after 5 years of neglect. We are finding interesting surprises every week!
    Things that didn't really grow last year, or that we didn't notice because we were so busy, are thriving.

  12. Love that lilac, droppy blooms or not..it's stunning. Hope to see some more of it later as the flowers open.

    Like the garden art, maybe you need to do a rain dance. Apparently we have a rainy month here in June...really, it's rained all the time up here since we got here.

  14. Love the garden art. I always get a kick out of the different plants I find as I'm weeding, some of them I'm sure are courtesy of the birds.

  17. Our lilacs are just ready to pop so don't worry about being late!!

  18. The lilacs are blooming here too. We've had terrible storms, hail, sleet, you name it - so they are looking a bit raggedy.

    Love that pic with Chance in the background of the lilacs.

  19. I have a couple of weird lilacs one is a Hungarian lilac it has sort of droopy blooms, it didn't bloom much this year, the goats liked it too much last year. I hope you get your rain, we got the fire hose turned on us yesterday, it was drenching.

  20. That's a cool piece of garden art! And the lilac looks like it hasn't fully opened yet? We need rain here too and we got some, but last night when I was out throwing the frisby for Nitty there was dust coming up from the lawn where she was running. Obviously we did not get enough! LOL! Hope we all get some!

  21. That is a really cool sculpture. I really like it. I have a wild garden area, which is called the orchard. I mow it as nothing desirable grows there. Lots of natural weeds.
