Martha is a master gardener.
I am not.
I have no idea what these shrubs are in my front yard. They seem nice, but it's too soon to tell. It could go either way, you know? Some plants are just like that.
Close up, it has many buds that are about to open. The buds are pinkish-white.
This bush reminds me of a lilac (and even smells like lilac!) with the tiny purple buds, but the leaves and structure don't seem like a lilac at all.
What are these things?
