tigerlillian-- your lilac trees are beautiful. i've never seen any so big. we only have bushes here, ours don't ever grow that big. the smell must be wonderful, i can imagine. lilac is one of my favorite scents.
right now i have tulips and grape hyacinths blooming. forthysia and honesuckle are starting to come alive and my fox gloves and sweet williams are coming up, but won't flower for awhile.
we just planted lettuce and strawberries, but have much more to plant when it gets a little warmer, especially tomatoes.
later i'll have lambs ears, silver dollars, dahlias, canna lilys, queen anne's lace and gladiolis blooming as well as my butterfly bush which seduces big bumble bees and beautiful butterflys to my yard.
my herbs are starting too, but i need to replant some, especially basil. i love spring and summer and the abundance it brings.
happy planting everyone and i hope all your gardens and flowers grow like they never have before.
