Early Spring

We should know later today if the lilacs went bad.  It was so hot for so long that alot of plants got way ahead of themselves: Forsythia are blooming, Magnolias about to and the lilac buds are more expanded than ususl for this time of year.Lilacs are suscepible to Pseudomonas, a bacterium when they've sustained some tissue freezing which happens when they start to expand and then iot freezes- it got quite cold last night but my thermometer read 27 at 7:00 am so I think I'm going to be OK.  Quite alot of lilacs are at stake here.
