I do see some other folks have lilacs that are doing well - it seems to be those that are somewhat sheltered on the west side - so I'm curious to know how the early bloom and weather has affected the massive lilacs on Mackinaw Island. The Island hosts its Lilac Festival typically in early June at the peek of the blooms. With most of the state experiencing 80 degree temps in March, many of our plants were triggered at least a month early. Then we've had more ups and downs and most recently, our nights are back to freezing. We've also had an unusual number of high wind days which is an even bigger problem for lilacs than the cool-down.
Do you have lilacs? How are they doing this year? Comment below or share your pics with me on Twitter!
