RE: josee's demise

Alas poor Josee. 
I had a really nice hydrangea blooming in my front yard until I took out the
huge juniper that was threatening to swallow it. I thought it would be okay,
it wasn't the only shade source or wind block, but...the hydrangea got
smaller and smaller that summer and only a couple leaves came back the next

My lovely hybrid lilac, Josee (real name: Syringa 'Morjos 060F') has died. 
I've had it for almost 10 years since it was just a small $25 cutting.  It 
bloomed several times during the season and was just lovely.  It was in a 
protected spot which I guess was both good and bad.  Good as it grew and 
bloomed, but bad in that the globose pine in front of it sort of prevented 
it from getting ample sun.  The pine got too big so I ripped it out last 
year.  Perhaps without its protection this past winter, Josee just couldn't 
handle the exposure.  Thoughts?

Fortunately, 2 of the cuttings i took from her last year survived, so I do 
have something to work with.
