A promise of lilacs

More visual snippets of my backyard. The person who owned my house before I bought it was an avid gardener, which is a good thing. A number of perennials continue to make their yearly appearance, even after nearly 13 years.

Although my father was also blessed with a green thumb, that little bit of his genetic code did not transfer to me. I'm much more adept at growing weeds and crabgrass than anything else.

But I did acquire his love for photography, so I can appreciate and capture what others have established before me.

I love lilacs. Ours are long gone though, here in Maryland. They are so brief.
