Here's my lilac bush day before yesterday:
There's little buds there! I was excited to see them opening so early. Then yesterday, I looked out my window to see this:
They are much bigger. It was so rainy here, I guess I just figured that the lilacs would take a day off, but no, they are the postmasters of the world, never taking a day off despite the rainy weather, always trudging forward through the rain or hail or sleet or snow to make their appointed rounds. Once they start blooming, there's no stopping them, like nature everywhere.
I am constantly amazed by things at this time every year. Everything grows so fast! It is wonderful.
Nicky is amazed too.
