Our tea is this coming Sunday and we are not quite all the way ready. I have successfully mown the grass even though all 3 of my lawnmowers have now broken down twice and so far,I've spent $200 fixing them and now I need a new riding lwnmower. Yhe earliest lilacs are now out: Gertrude Leslie, Royal Purple, Evangeline and Nadehzda is starting. Also Little Boy Blue (Wonderblue) and oblata. I'm hoping for warm weather this week. I'm getting a load of mulch on my way home from the nursery tonight to do my rose beds. The roses took a hit this winter and look terrible. The daffodils are still quite nice, about a quarter of mine are still fine: N. poeticus, Modern Art, Decoy, Fragrant Rose, Acropolis, Felindre, and Elizabeth Anne are now at their peak.
