Our weather here in Ohio has been varied...to say the least. We had extremely warm weather all of March. No one complained because we never complain about warm air in Winter. However, it fooled the plants. We weren't fooled, we knew trouble would brew. Once March departed, April arrived..and so did cold, freezes galore and this week snow touched a few lake areas. It did not go well for Spring blossoms like my favorite Lilac. I had just a few blooms that survived the hard frosts. I decided I'd better pick the one and only bouquet I would be able to enjoy. So here it is in all it's glory. I have dark lilacs and the regular pale lilac and I even have white ones. The white didn't even produce a bloom. They must not have been fooled like their buddies were! Hopefully next year will yield a better vase full of joy. So these buds are for you...well, actually they were for me but I'm only to happy to share!
