We live in a small town outside of Charlotte NC. Our small down town has it's original hardware store. The last of the original owners just passed away. He owned a beautiful home in the town. In his will he insisted that it be burnt down or bulldozed! It was bulldozed this week, to the sadness of many towns people. We went by the grounds Friday to have a look. We found that there is a beautiful garden that is also going to torn out to make room for condos. It has three Lilacs in bloom! I have two Lilacs that I have been nursing for years and only one bloom! I want to rescue these abandon Lilacs but dear hubby says know. I may go rescue some Tulips and Jonquils though! SHHH. So I brought some Lilacs home and did a photo shoot in fond memory of the lost to progress Lilacs.
