58/365 Lilacs

The south side of our property is actually an old abandoned railway. It's just a wooded tree line now.

It has proven especially useful in one particular way: Plant I.C.U.

When a bush, flower, or tree in our yard appears to be suffering (and is still a manageable size), it gets moved to the tree line.

The first few relocations were just done in a last ditch effort. But when each plant that had been on its last leg (root?) started thriving in its new location, we dubbed it I.C.U.

These lilacs came from a bush that lives in I.C.U. It still isn't chock full of blossoms, but it bloomed enough this year for me to clip a small bouquet. They smell heavenly!

Camera: Canon Rebel DSLR with a 60mm macro lens: 1/30s, f/2.8 at ISO 400. In natural light, by a window, at approximately 6:15 p.m.
