A few hours later: Mom wants to go out and do grocery shopping. I'm not feeling terribly ambitious, but I may go with to at least one grocery store. It's very cold out today.
Later: I ended up going to two grocery stores with Mom. It was exhausting. The first store wasn't bad, but the second store was very busy. I got to say Happy Easter to P. and Z., though.
After a late lunch, I walked around outside to see what was what with the flowers. The big magnolia was about to be in full bloom, and it got frosted. I was surprised that didn't make Mom cry. Maybe tomorrow, when she realizes the damage. I cut a few daffodils and a couple of stems of hyacinths to enjoy in the house. The book I got from the library about lilacs was quite interesting. I think the lilac that survived long enough to be planted after I got it from the Flower Show must be 'Lavender Lady.' There were three, and it isn't "Beauty of Moscow," and I don't think it's 'Agincourt Beauty,' either. This was many years ago, and the plant that was about a foot long when I got it is now several feet tall. The one I got a few years later is 'Pocahontas.' I learned that that is an extremely cold-hardy lilac cultivar, while 'Lavender Lady' is a lilac that's supposed to be good in relatively warm climates. I'm still mad that something ate the top off that little start of 'Mme. Lemoine' that had survived the winter.
I finally settled in to watch "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" at 11:00 p.m., and now I'm well into Saturday morning. Oops.
