With the unusually mild early spring in the Eastern US, I was wondering if the leaves are coming out already in your neck of the woods. No such luck on the West Coast.

almost all the trees here in Houston are sporting a new thick canopy of leaves.

Even the red buds have already shed their pink plumage and are now sporting green.

we didn't have a cold spell here this year. Fall came late and that was about all we had

Smaller trees in Cincy are fully green or are in the last stage of budding (pedals falling off, leaves sprouting out). The older ones are at about half way.

We have trees begining to turn green here in Michigan, and I am almost halfway up the lower peninsula. I cut my lawn Sunday too, and it is MARCH. These things have never happened in living memory here in Michigan. Many years there is still snow on the ground here in March. We still get the occasional snow storm in April and even early May. It cooled off here to about 50, and even that is way above average. It is a year for the record books.

We usually have about the same time it leafs out (mid March) each year. It didn't finish leafing out like it sometimes does in the winter, but we had a few cold mornings and days which helped us.

Yep....a couple weeks ahead of schedule, at least where they are at right now. Not every tree has bloomed out yet, but many have. Last year it wasn't even done snowing yet.

The white/pink blossoms started popping up last week or so, it is abnormally early for this though. I'm going to check out Branch Brook Park in Newark later next week to check out the cherry blossoms and take a few pix.

In the DC area, most trees have at least small green leaves and some trees such as Bradford Pears, deciduous magnolias, and Crabapples are all with a fresh coat of leaves. We're a good half month ahead of schedule, and even the dogwoods and early azaleas are starting to bloom.

A few species of trees began leafing out in the Boston area about a week ago, and there are numerous varieties of flowering trees that bloomed a month earlier than usual. There was some concern about yesterday's Arctic cold snap killing off the blossoms, but so far it looks like most of the flowers went unscathed.
