Breidablick WA - Abandoned Church with blooming Lilacs

Abandoned, but still lovely.

:  :  :

This small,

white clapboard church now abandoned,

still stands with its siding now settled

and no longer plumb.

:  :  :

Embracing the clapboards, a charming old-fashioned lilac bush

is still thriving in the warm spring sunshine

on the east side of the church under a roman arched window.

:  :  :

I’ve often wondered

why lilacs seem to be the only surviving plant or shrub

(except for the occasional daffodil)

on old abandoned homesteads and

in church yards.

It must be

because they are so hardy

that they don’t need tending to thrive.
