Bleeding heart, Lilacs and Snowball Bushes. When I was a kid these were the common bushes in Grandmother’s gardens. I remember…the smell of lilac bushes, the pretty round white balls, and the delicate little hearts hanging on a vine, especially after the rain.
These plants aren’t as common today. There are so many new and interesting things for gardens, it’s hard to decide what to get. I do have a white and pink bleeding heart and my neighbour has the other two. So I do get to see the beauty of all three.
Ahh…the smell of lilacs….takes me right back to my childhood!
