For the first time in ten years my lilac bushes, the plum and the crabapple trees did not have any blooms. I was just wondering if it was just my area (Aurora) or in the rest of Colorado. I remember we had freezing temps. just about the time the buds on these were forming ... does anyone know if this was the reason. I always look forward to the flowers after the winter and was so disappointed this year. (I've taken pictures of them each year for the last 10 - guess I'll have to look at them to remind me how beautiful they were.)
The only upside I can see is that I won't have the tons of crabapples on my front lawn to clean up in the fall.

I live in PA. so I can't answer your question directly, but that type of damage is not uncommon here. Have the bushes and trees pushed leaves?

My lilacs are just now blooming but it is sparse. My plums got a few blooms but not like usual. I was shocked to get any at all due to the freezes.

I'm in Longmont and the city normally is busting with blooming trees and this year nothing for the most part. It was disappointing but I'm glad it's not dry and in the 90's right now!

Yes the leaves on the plum tree have a beautiful color right now .... and all the others have tons of leaves now .... miss the lilac blooms thought ... (one had pink blooms and the other had a violet color). Hope next year they come back.
