The lilac. It's really nice right now. The bush is about four feet high, so it's not a giant yet. We planted it in 2006. This is the third year for flowers, since it blooms every other year. I still can't believe I got one that doesn't flower every year. Ugh.
The back yard continues to get worked on. I trimmed the two forsythia bushes back. My research tells me that they should be trimmed in spring, after they flower. So that's what I did. I got the back yard mowed again. The weather remains dry and mild.
I got to the market on Saturday. Asparagus were going for five euros a kilo, so I bought some. Also got some mushrooms from the mushroom lady. It was a pleasant morning, so I walked around a bit and enjoyed the atmosphere.
Ken stayed home and worked on painting some more. It will get done, bit by bit.
Cold, gloom, and rain
