Lilac’s Thinking – 2013

This lilac bud on the west side of the house will become one of my new reference plants.  Watch for future bud photos from this same bud pair as they unfold this year and in future years.  Tracking bud burst on the very same plant from year to year helps reveal information about the subtle shifts in climate.  I wish I had 50 years of data to share with you about this plant but it’s only been planted for several years.
