Thanks. 2 separate pics. Zoomed in of course on 1 of them. Then just using Bitmap or photoshop to copy and paste on the other.

I need a new camera though. Nikkon Coolpix L820 getting old now.


Here's a bunch I did April 21, 2016

Well,as of today March 5th, I have observed that forsythia bushes are just starting to bloom, the Japanese quince bushes are on the verge of blooming, the saucer and star magnolia trees are experiencing bud swelling and a few of those types of trees are making preparations to start blooming, certain species of cherry and crabapple trees are seeing their buds swell and break. All of these plants here in the Indianapolis area are a good 1 month early in terms of growth/development, so not good considering everything, as early as everything is in blooming or just starting to come out of dormancy, at least here the trees and shrubs and some grasses as well are as of this date(3-5-2017) more on a level not usually seen until at least early to mid April, and the 7 day forecast at least for now, does not have any hard freezes for the Indianapolis area, the NWS is calling for lows in the mid 30's for Thursday and Friday mornings.

It was bound to happen. Happened here April last year.

Now early March in D.C. Goodbye Magnolia blooms. (Dont worry, tree is fine)

Lots of damage from this Arctic blast this weekend.

I was out yesterday walking and came across a Forsythia that was just starting to bloom, just a few open flowers, but it's a month earlier than what we normally see here! Also saw a Cornelian Cherry that was blooming. Shades of 2012

Growing season started in Kentucky so Freeze Warnings have been issued. It's early for that but because things already started growing they have to issue it. Freezing temps will damage growth and blooms.


Here is the message issued.

URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Louisville KY
256 PM EST Thu Mar 9 2017

...SUBFREEZING TEMPERATURES EXPECTED FRIDAY NIGHT ACROSS
KENTUCKY...

.The above normal temperatures of February and early March has led
to several species of fruit trees and other early crops getting a
head start in the growing season. Peach trees, winter wheat, and
some varieties of strawberries are several weeks ahead of schedule
and susceptible to signficant damage if overnight temperatures
drop into the 20s. After coordinating with the University of
Kentucky Agriculture Weather Center a freeze warning has been
issued for Friday night and Saturday morning.

256 PM EST Thu Mar 9 2017 /156 PM CST Thu Mar 9 2017/

...FREEZE WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 PM EST /10 PM CST/ FRIDAY TO
9 AM EST /8 AM CST/ SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Louisville has issued a Freeze
Warning, which is in effect from 11 PM EST /10 PM CST/ Friday to
9 AM EST /8 AM CST/ Saturday.

* TEMPERATURE...Temperatures will fall into the lower to middle
20s across much of central Kentucky.

* IMPACTS...The temperatures expected will likely damage fruit
trees, especially those trees that have already budded out such
as peach trees. Other plants that are ahead of schedule for the
spring growing season could also be impacted. Please take
precautions to protect any sensitive plants.

Had some progress with budding here end of February/early March (which was early), but then someone hit the switch. Record cold weeks and a Top 10 coldest March and everything went to sleep.


Now I'm thinking we'll be normal with the blooms and leaf out, maybe even late if this cold continues.


Here's a pic from my roof cam yesterday
