Thought it would be fun to post what it looks like where we are.. (your own pics per CD Rules!)

If there's a better title we can have let me know. Will be fun to see who has progressed into Spring and Summer from around the world.

I'll start....

My Colors of the day. April 19, 2015.

Lilac, Swamp Maples, Hyacinthias, & Forsythias all blossoming & blooming now. Grass going to need a mow soon for first time, but with colder temps coming I may have to wait till May.



If it wasn't for last 7 days in a row above normal we wouldn't be this far & would be weeks behind normal. Like 2-4 weeks behind. So the past week let everything catch up a bit. Still about 1-2 weeks behind normal.

Here in N.C. all daffodils, tulips, forsythia, cherries, redbuds, dogwoods are finished and we have cut the grass 3 or 4 times already. It rained buckets today so I'm sure my big fat iris buds will pop any day. Azaleas are full of color, spirea and grancy grey beard are showy as well as carolina jessamine and a few others. In a few weeks the ferns and hostas will be as big as they will get all season and the lenten roses will be gone. My beautiful Virginia Bluebell only lasted 3 or 4 days but I do love it when it is in bloom. My Amethyst Falls Wisteria should be gorgeous in no time. I'll try to get some good pictures when it dries out.

We are officially a tad ahead of last year at this time but well behind the very warm year of 2012.

Lets see how we look 5/3 in 2 weeks to compare to last year.




How it looks today the normal would be about April 12th give or take. So about a week+ late this year. And only because we caught up fast by having a week of above normal temps.
