This Year’s Lilac, a Survivor

I’m pleasantly surprised that the lilac bush in our ditch bloomed at all this year. The 12-foot-deep ditch has flooded to the brim twice this year already. One morning it was full long enough that several mallard ducks swam through it.

This evening the ditch was dry enough to get some photos of the lilac bush. I think the lack of sky in the background and the fuzzy focus make it seem as if it’s still submerged. If only that fly on the upper leaf hadn’t insisted on being part of the picture . . .

    1. We seldom see the mallard ducks around this house unless we’ve had too much rain. When my daughter and I lived in an apartment, we saw them all the time because we lived next to a pond. I have a small mallard duck figurine hanging from my car’s rearview mirror in honor of that time.
