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.
