I refuse to show any more pictures of snow. I have carefully arranged this shot of fattening lilac buds to avoid any hints of the snow that still covers lots of ground. These buds on my ancient white and nameless lilacs are encouraging and I am looking forward to seeing what my newer lilacs will do this spring. I planted the pink Miss Canada about three years ago and she blooms nicely, but hasn’t grown into anything substantial.
Last year, I planted the Beauty of Moscow so this will be the first time she’ll bloom for me. I hope there are a couple of blooms anyway. The bush was a good size. I can’t wait for the fragrance of spring.
