April Showers (or not) and May Flowers (we hope)
Meanwhile, I have lilac ready to bloom in another two or three weeks, less if we get some sunshine. We saw it bloom four or five weeks ago in Paris, and are thrilled we'll have a repeat of what's generally a once-a-season performance. Ditto for our daffodils and tulips (we have many small varieties currently blooming -- I'll try to get some pics up soon). We're seriously considering planting some wisteria after walking under its lush, fragrant blooms in Paris and London (although I do wonder if it's responsible for the hayfever I suffered).
Much as I'm motivated, though, to get out in the garden, inspired by my Paris/London memories, I'm a bit relieved that we've got a few days of rain. I need an excuse to stay out of the garden, since I have a paper to research and write -- I'm presenting at a conference at the end of the month, and apparently, the presentation isn't going to write itself.
Spring in the garden, yours or otherwise, tell me about it. . . .
