    • Anna, I am always so amazed when someone can just rattle off the name of a flower/plant/tree like you just did. I’ve only just begun my education on all things “growing out of the ground” and must say, I still admire things people tell me are weeds! Have a good week!

    • Oh, am very glad you liked it! How strange. As I’ve said before, I’m only just beginning to learn about plants/flowers/trees, so it surprises me that you say yours is small. This one is from a tree in our yard and the tree is just huge! I thought they were all that way. Amazing what I learn in a day.

        • Hmmm, interesting. I just had someone else comment that she believed they always grew as bushes and not trees. Can you advise on that? I thought what I have here was a tree because it is well up over my head and has a trunk and branches. But it is rounder and less straight-up-and-down like other trees. It is a tree or a bush?

            • Okay, I think I’m going to have to go take a pic of this and send it to you. I’m convinced this is a tree. It’s alot bigger than any rhododendron. Am making you my expert on this. πŸ™‚

                OK.. I had a big-ass lilac tree at my old house, but the shoots that grew around it, qualify it as a bush. It’s all in how you prune, I say! I planted one tree at this house and so far, nothing has grown around it. Though, recently I learnt that when the flowers have faded, they turn to seed and what the birds don’t eat, the earth does… and makes more! This must be why some people can have a lilac hedge…

              • “…how you prune..” This is yet another new concept to me this year! We had a conversation here yesterday that eventually moved to e-mail. In that conversation, it was decided (after some research) that a lilac is a bush/shrub. But what I have here, definitely looks like a tree. It is very strange. I had not heard about the seeds after the flowers fade NOR had I heard of a lilac hedge! I learn so much on here from you and others like you! Most grateful!

                That is definitely one of the many bonuses of blogging! Connecting, learning, laughing (quite a bit of this last one as some bloggers are really funny!)

    • Well, see now, I don’t actually know the difference between bush and tree, I guess. I thought trees were things with big trunks and lots of branches which this is. However, this is also not a straight-up in the air sort of tree….it’s more rounded I guess and shorter….it’s closer to the ground. So maybe this is a bush, though it is well over my head or anywhere close to the point where we could prune it on top. Who knows…..
