Lilacs

9 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anybody has seen any blooming lilacs? They should start soon in the southern half of the state and move their way north in 2-3 weeks.

Just started to see them in the last week to week and a half around here. Not all of them but quite a few.

My neighbor has an 80-foot hedge and they've barely popped out leaves.

Mine are all purple buded and ready to pop.

About the same in Isanti. I'm hoping they peak on June 7. We're getting married at our house and the stage is right by ours.

Don't know if we'll get that lucky.

rule of thumb.......treat for crab grass when the lilacs bloom. We here in western South Dakota are seeing them opened now.

    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.

    • That the snow's coming. My crab apple, and the ground below it, is literally loaded with Robin's gorging themselves. Started yesterday and hasn't stopped...I counted 15 at once before they flit around and land on another branch.
