Lilac Tree

By far the favorite thing in the backyard garden of my first home was the lilac tree. When I first moved in, it was a shaded-out stump that I didn't even know was a lilac. Likely planted by the original owner of the 90 y/o house, when I'd had the evil 'tree of heavens' removed & sun returned, so did the lilac, growing at least 15-20' in its full glory and smelling like heaven. I let it become a hedge it was so perfect. (The tragedy is that the new owner chopped it down. Who tf does that?!)
