I have been watching the buds on the lilac bush.
This was April 06, 2012
Twenty- three days later on April 29. Spring is sure slow. I hope there is a flower under there.
Remember if you want to trim/prune your lilacs do so shortly after they bloom before they set up their flower buds for next year. If you wait too long to prune, they will have set up their buds, you will cut them off and have no flowers next year:(
