Spring Buds

It is past the equinox and the days are getting longer. However, I have a rule that one does not consider that spring has arrived until May 15th. That rule is hard to follow when plants start budding and the robins are back in town. The following three pictures show our lilac budding and the trout lily emerging from its sleep. We are quite excited that the forsythia is ready to explode into a mass of yellow. Yay for late winter!
