    Hi Joan, Sorry it is still so cold there. That is exactly what I believe allows you to have lilacs. I don't think we get them down here. I am from Pa. and lilacs were my special smell.

    So sorry Tod, those early flowers and buds always invigorate me and to lose that "liveliness" in spring is a sad thing.

    Hi Larry, Hope this finds you well. I was driving through Mississippi and Louisiana about two weeks back and in about ten different places along the highway the wisteria had actually taken over certain trees as a climbing ladder. I imagine it is the longer warm season and mild winters down south. Hope your wisteria blooms for your little lady's wedding.

    Shaz, you wait until the second set of pictures to show the state flower???! There's probably a law against that you know!
    My shop foreman drove to College Station to haul back his son's car, tranny died, and got into a terrible snow storm this past Sat. He said that cars were stopped on Hwy 6 from Waco to Hearne taking pictures of the Bluebonnets in the snow. About 1 1/2" on the ground there, so I bet there are a lot of Texas wildflowers that bit the dust over the weekend, even though it didn't get that cold here (low 30's). Jim.
