Lilacs

While we were in NYC this weekend, I really missed our yard. I love the city and we did spend some time in Central Park, but I missed all of the bird and animal sounds we have in our little corner of Baltimore. The lilac is in full bloom now and the whole yard smells heavenly. We noticed that NYC seems to be about a week behind us, plant-wise, the tulips were just coming up and the cherry blossoms were in full bloom which was true here about 7-10 days ago. Just being that little bit further North (3 1/2-4 hours away) seems to make a big difference.

i think that the rule of thumb is that for every 100 miles north you travel, it's a week behind in growing.

The appearance of the first lilacs make me so happy. Aren't they the loveliest?
