I planted a japanese tree lilac two years ago, it is in full sun, the leaves and bark are healthy. it is yet to bloom, anyone else have that experience? Or, I am just not patient enough?

Here in southern NH it is zone 4-5, depending on who you talk to. Still chilly for some of the plants, but my yard is green and all my perrenials are up. It's been such a warm winter, I even went out on a limb and filled my containers. Love the summer. Spring is a bit damp, but it's better than the white stuff.

Entered my first orchid show with this orchid. I was writing up cards, not really taking much notice of the judges fussing around my orchid. Turns out that the parentage of this orchid goes back to the species by only 4 generations and it has won…
