The lilacs are blooming

The lilacs are blooming. I just noticed while looking out the back diningroom window. I was a bit startled; I have been out in the backyard regularly lately, doing things like hitting my dog in the head with baseballs.
Also looked up in technorati. Now it goes back a couple of days. Fireant Gazette has me in a list. And some woman has posted that cubicle picture. How bizarre is that.
