We all know by now that everything is early but there are few plants in my yard that I know for a fact are one month ahead of their usual blooming time. Lilacs are one of those plants. They are usually in full bloom for my birthday during the first week of May. They're out now!
I love lilacs! They were the first shrubs I planted when we bought our house and we purposely put them right next to the front door.
These are dwarf Korean lilacs.
Unfortunately, the bleeding hearts are looking a bit ragged with our temps in the 90s the past two days. They really don't like the heat.
Other plants have been showing signs of heat stress - poor things, all that new growth isn't ready for these high temps.
