“Will the lilacs ever bloom?”


Description from Lois D: I warned those little lilac buds yesterday, telling them they had better stay put for now. "Don't let the bare ground and calendar date fool you!", I said. "More snow's on the way!"
But, did they listen??? No. And "we" woke up to a foot and an half of snow this morning. Happy Spring?!

    Thank you, ST.
    Yes, that ‘lovely scent’ :) can’t wait for it. We have mostly purples and a few whites. Wish I had pinks as well. Guess they come in all sorts of colors these days.

    I love the triple blossoms. Deep, almost red purple center with light lavender outer petals!

    Oh Lois. I can SO relate to your pain. We had a late snow one year (I was living in Utah) and my lilacs, daffodils, and tulips were all bent over from the weight of the snow. :(

    Thank you all for your encouraging words on the lilacs and the pick. LB is a wonderful place to come for a quick ‘fresh pick-me-up’ when feeling low.

    Good news! The sun is out today, which will melt away some of the snow. We press on!
