My bush is fine, thank you


It lives, it blooms!

I was so worried when my poor baby lilac got snowed in last month just as it started to bud, but it has proved hearty and smells mighty purty.

That's all I have to say about that.

29 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

hey, I am SO jealous of you...i had to move away from the most wonderful garden a year and a half ago. I totally miss the smell of lilac.

Lilac is such a strong, wonderful aroma. Glad your bush made it through the winter weather. :-)

Opera gal, this thing is HUGE. I think it's older than Jim and me put together (and that's pretty old).

Why thanks, Zombie! That means a lot comin' from a bushmaster such as yourself.

Squirl, our plants do much better if Jim touches 'em and I just admire. My thumb is not quite green. But whoa, what a bush.

Can't believe I'm the first rhetoric putz to say this but "I wish I could bury my face in your bush right now" or "gee, your bush must smell wonderful" or how about "don't forget to trim your bush when it's done"

Kitty, I think my bush makes Mr. B sneeze.

Am I too miserly with the Massengill? You guys can be honest with me.

What can I say? I like to post pictures of my bush.

Is a purple bush normal?

So Jim has the magic touch with the bush, hmm?

Looking at that picture, I can almost smell your bush from here. I'd like to brush my cheek against it and put it in some water on my kitchen table.

My that is a nice bush you got there. And it just so happens I know a lot about bushes and that bush is fantastic.

It is always a good idea to trim the bush once it's done blooming. We call it dead heading here. Promotes more bloom next year. Sadly, my bush is done blooming, time to trim it.

Susie, have you turned into the dude next door to Lector (Miggs I think?) with the slightly altered:

"I can almost smell your bush"

Oh it's gorgeous!

I loves me some lilacs. They remind me of the May crowning of Mary in Catholic grade school.

Um, you really need to trim your bush. Unless Jim is into that kind of thing.

i seem to remember that we all will be raising the little youngin by proxy or some such thing. Note that if said youngin shows up on my doorstep, the cat is going to take care of it. (laughs)

Bucky, I tag you for the "If I could be" game. Go to my blog to check out how to do it. I am sure someone has already tagged you, but I wanted to try!

I concur with Mr. Bloggeriffic Himself's first comment:

ACHOO!!!

I posted pics of my TWO bushes on my blog too--love how they look and smell, but not how they make me feel:)

So Jim has the Midas bush-touch, eh? Are you willing to share his magic phalanges (green or otherwise) with the rest of us bush owners, Bucky? Methinks you're just one big bush tease.

ok, so i have an ethical connundrum involving plants, so I'll post it here - i like tulips.(thats not the conundrum)
The city is going to tear up my street sonn, and toast all of the lovely purple, yellow and white tulips. I am seriously thinking about going out there and digging those suckers up.

thoughts?
i'm going to post this over at greenies too...

Cheeez, Louise! Are you STILL on here bragging about your bush? Yea, it's nice; it's glorious, it's vibrant and inviting and smells great. All right, already! Some people's egos . . .

opera girl -- absolutely, go get you some tulips!

Its bucky's blog and I think she can talk about her bush as much as she wants to. So lets quit beating around the bush and talk about bush.

That is one mighty fine, splendid, Grade A bush. Feed it a carrot and brush it twice a day to keep its coat nice n shiny.

I think I saw a banner at now.org or some other similar place, which stated:

The only Bush you can trust is your own:)
