I told you it was spring

My lilacs are starting to bud.

We did a little trimming to remove the grapevine, the milkweed, and a couple of little trees that have gotten mixed up in the lilacs' territory. Unfortunately, pulling out the grapevine also damaged one of the lilac branches, and we had to cut it out.

The branch had a bird's nest in it.

Terry was relieved to see it was empty.

Now we are off to the garden store to get some of the goop to paint over the cut end to protect it from infection. Earl May is the devil's own store. Everything is going to look so pretty and/or delicious that I will want to bring it all home. I am easily tempted to forget that I don't like gardening.

Must. Be. Strong.
