Lilac’s Thinking – 2014

One of the first posts on this blog was of a lilac bud about ready to burst forth.  It was posted on March 16th 2013.  In that post I promised to keep track of that plant from year to year.  Here’s a post making good on that promise.  I’m not sure what this tells about the difference between last year and this if anything.  But over time, perhaps a story will emerge.  Both pictures were taken on March 16th.  The first in 2013 and the second in 2014.

As I sit creating this post the weather forecast calls for dropping temperatures into the 20s with 1-2 inches of snow on the way. Yesterday was beautiful with highs in the mid 50s and humidity in the low 50s. Good burn weather.
