Lilacs not till mid-May (typically around Mother's Day), although the exact timing varies year-to-year depending on weather ... may be earlier this year d/t mild spring. Trees don't typically bud out till May ... again may be a bit earlier this year ...

A lot of the trees actually have bloomed, in fact the Lilac tree in my yard is already starting to bud. The earliest they have peaked was in mid-April one year, the latest was the beginning of June. It looks like it's going to be closer to the end of April this year.

We had a record-breaking freakishly mild winter this year and by far the warmest March on record. This leads me to believe we will have a much earlier peak bloom time than usual. So far April has been pretty "typical" and we've had a couple freezes...from the looks of the 10 day forecast it looks like feezes may be behind us for this season but it also looks like the weather will not exactly be "nice" for the time that you are here....40's and rainy most of the week unfortunately. Unless you won't be coming until the weekend, when it looks to be sunny and in the 60s. If that is the case, chances are you will see a lot of trees starting to bloom and certainly most smaller plants already in bloom

No lilacs. Trees are just showing leaf-pops.
