Climate scientists projected that human-induced global warming would make spring arrive earlier than normal, and it is about 10 days earlier so far. It is not that difficult for people to adjust, but "spring creep" already is posing a significant threat to plants and animals across the country.

From the NPS web cam near our Mtn home, at the same elev of 5,000 ft, I can see the trees 'coloring' and 'twig fattening', as in buds. Way too early, as we have always had a very hard, and even a series of hard freezes in late April/early May for the decade we have lived there, in the Mtns of western NC.

I realize it is a different climate at that elevation, and most of the native stuff has its own timetable, but the surge into warmer than normal temps bodes no good will for the inevitable hard freeze(s) to come in late April. And, my planted stuff, (Zone 6 or colder), continues to get their fannies kicked nearly every spring.

Our daffodils have been blooming for about a week or so. Daylilies are really coming up nicely, and the verbena is coming out. I was concerned about that because we had such a cold winter. I noticed buds on the red maple beside my house last week, and noticed this morning they are starting to open. Also noticed this morning that the Bradford pears are beginning to bloom.

Default Camelia bushes

My camelia bushes usually bloom in late January or early February. Other plants are budding early and yet my camelias are just now coming in! Weird.

I noticed yesterday that our mulberry trees are starting to bud out - and it's only March! In the past, they haven't done anything until April. At this rate, our huge oak trees (which usually bud out in May) will be green leaves by the end of April.

It's been very warm this winter. In the Nashville area, dogwoods are in full bloom and the Bermuda grass is already beginning to turn green. This usually doesn't happen til the middle of march.

One of my rhododendrons was full of blooms two weeks ago already (in the Asheville NC area). Does seem a bit early to me too.

Upstate SC, noticed our trees are starting to bud out. They are at least 25 days early. Usually come out March 15th or so. If you check the pollen levels in our area you will see it!

We have cherry, blackthorn, maple, sycamore, magnolia and a few others budding. Camellias, daffodils, crocuses are in flower. Typical for mid February here.

Grass here stays green in winter and turns brown in summer.

buds everywhere, just in the past day or two. As for too early, yes, it is about a week or two early, but i can remember other years with early budding and it really didnt make a lot of difference even if the fros and snow returned. The leaves came back. It is the fruit crop that sometimes is affected.
