Self portrait with lilacs
My lilac is not very productive this year. It has about half of the blooms that it did last year, and I had thought last year was not very good. I think the wacky spring weather has something to do with it. I haven't seen any other lilacs, though, so I guess I don't really know. Other flowering bushes and trees are doing OK aside from being significantly early.
Lilac detail
Almost all the bloom clusters are only partly open. But I don't know if they'll be much better when they're completely open.
Stray cat
My yard has been adopted (for now) by a stray cat. It was on the deck when I got to the backyard to take the lilac photos, then scurried to the side yars where I got this pic. I couldn't get very close before it scurried off again. A few minutes later, as I was in the car backing out of the driveway, I saw it on my front porch, lounging. I tried to get a photo of that but it didn't really work out.

You look great there!

The lilacs do look nice, regardless.

That's a gorgeous black cat! Too bad the little fellow hasn't got a home.

Thanks :)

The cat looks pretty good for a stray. It's not all that skittish, judging from how it behaved yesterday. It didn't want me too close, but it didn't run away terribly fast, either. I think I've seen this one around the house and my neighbor's for a few weeks now.

Spring Flowers
Our spring was ridiculously early [February]. We don't have lilacs in Florida.
I have beau coup azaleas and the satsuki's, that bloom in May, are blooming now -- about 3 weeks early.
