In the housing complex where Spike lives, there are lilac bushes all over the grounds. We know they are lilac bushes, but the bushes don't know it this year. Not one flower yet. I wonder if the Arboretum in Jamaica Plain have any flowers on their bushes. They have thousands of bushes of all kinds. One of the traditions is for families to bring a picnic on Mother's Day when all the bushes are in full bloom. The air makes you very heady with the aroma.

I wonder too. Miss Kim, my dwarf Korean lilac that sits in a shady protected corner, has buds like crazy. She usually blooms a month after regular lilacs. The white one that FIL gave us,and that has the prime real estate, has no blooms this year. Last year it went nuts. When we went on our walk, we saw several lilacs in bloom, but they were in protected locations or down in the woods.

I wish I could go to the Arboretum this coming Mother's Day to see the lilacs in bloom.

So much for apple trees producing every other year. My old, ratty tree is going nuts. Again. I see a food bank and random apple drop-offs in our future.
