A Spring Without Lilacs

We have two lilacs on our property. A small one right outside the window over my kitchen sink and one on the side of the house.

Our neighbor behind us has a lovely lilac that drapes over our back fence.

The little lilac never bloomed this spring. I’m very bummed because I love lilac and was really looking forward to it. Last year it only had two blooms. I cut it back after it bloomed last year because that’s what the internet told me to do. I don’t know if that affected it, if it’s too soon to bloom since it bloomed in May last year or still too young to have a full bloom.

Oh well, I guess we’ll have to wait until next year to see what will come up.
