Buds and babies

Yesterday’s budless tulips have all grown fat green heads on them, both out in the world and in our own back garden.  Not having been here last spring, we don’t know what colour these tulips will boom. Miraculous what four straight days of sunshine and 20 degrees can do!

Bob bought and planted two lilac bushes as well in the back garden today.  They are the tiniest lilac bushes I’ve ever sen, each with a fistful of tiny green leaves just beginning to open on the uppermost twigs. It will be years before they flower, I am guessing, but in the meantime, there’s the hope!
