On Wednesday, my neighbor and I were talking about this weird autumn and how things were reblooming this fall. She mentioned that her friend's lilac bush had buds on it and asked me if she thought the lilac would bloom again in spring. I had no idea.
On Thursday, Sue P. emailed this photo to me. She said she's not ready to give up on flowers yet and told me that in West New Jersey, the lilacs were blooming again. Here's the proof!

It's a very weird year!
Have a safe and happy weekend!
