This year I'll try to prune this plant and see if I can get more to bloom. It looks pretty anemic, and I adore lilac so I want to encourage growth. I just really suck at green things!
^This is shelter dog Jill. I love Jill. I am not usually one for the ankle-biters, but she is ridiculous and very sweet. They can't let her go into the outside part of her kennel, because apparently she has a knack for scaling chain link fences and escaping. The only reason she's still at the shelter after five days is that she requires a fully fenced yard - and no chain link for this little magician.
