Idea for thread thanks to El Scorcho from weather thread post.

So what do you have blooming this year? We're about 2 weeks later than usual around here in SWCT and 4 weeks behind 2012..

I have Weeping Cherry, Dogwood, Lilacs, Pear, Forsythias all blooming now.

Are you're bulbs sprouting? What do you have? My early tulips were non existent this year.

I love how fast and how much Connecticut greens up this time of year especially when it rains.. It looks so lush out there.

Forsythia blooming here in New Fairfield. Also my mountain laurel are "flowering" hosta are sprouting. Daffodils and tulips bloomed too. Not too much going on on the trees though -- actually it looks exactly like tube worms pictures from Bethel. Anyone remember April 2002? The week leading up to the 20th was a downright heat wave -- think we past 90 a couple of days that week. I have pictures -- it looked like full blown summer. Everything was blooming!

We had only a few crocus this year- no idea what happened to them. Lots of daffodils right now and forsythia. The magnolia tree on the front lawn just started opening up a couple of days ago. No tulips yet.

We seem way behind normal this year. My neighbor's pink magnolia seems to be in full bloom now, but my white one is just getting started. My cherry tree is starting to bloom but is not at peak yet.

I have nothing yet from my azaleas, and my fodergillas are just starting to bud, but no leaves yet. I have buds on my maples trees, but the Japanese maples barely have any sign of life.

Rose bushes have some leaves on them but no blooms yet, and hydrangias have some small green shoots.

All in all, my property still looks pretty barren. It has more of an early April look than a late April look.
