We have had a dismal, if not non-existent, spring. I can count the number of beautiful days on one hand, and the rest of them have been cold, and grey, and rainy...and did I mention grey?....and rainy? Sigh.
To illustrate how truly ugly it has been, I have prepared a photo comparison of the flora in my garden last year vs this year.

|May 3, 2010-gorgeous white double-bloom lilacs in all their glory|
|May 3, 2010-My favourite, classic light purple lilac|
|May 5-2011-The very same branch this year|
|May 3, 2010-leaves coming out on the weeping mulberry|
|May 5, 2011-Not a leaf bud in sight|

And thus concludes our photo retrospective of the spring that never quite sprung.....yet.
