Hi everyone!

I'm considering relocating to Greenville and will be visiting area soon, but am wondering if it's too early in the season to see the city in it's prime. Has everything started to bloom/turn green in the area yet?

The trees are still bare in the northeast where I'm at right now, but it's much colder here.

Thanks!!

Listen to CNCGirl! Bradford Pear trees have already flowered, I noticed Friday that most are showing green now but location makes a difference. The one in my yard is a few weeks behind the majority. If you watch our pollen count once grass starts registering above low it will be peak allergy season.

Bradford pear trees are a menace to the local landscape, despite their odoriferous blossoms. The cherry tree blossoms have been spectacular as always. Wait for the dogwoods and azaleas to bloom for a real spring treat.

I do hate a Bradford Pear Skyliner! The smell of them is just awful! The dogwood and azaleas will be blooming by the end of the week but the cherries will be past. The cherries on Main near McPherson were stunning this week!

There is not a bad time to visit Greenville. However, for a great visit, try the weekend of Artisphere, May 10-12.

IMO, the first of April to the end of May is most ideal to visit the Upstate. As noted above, I especially like the Mother's Day/Artisphere weekend. The weather is warm and the humidity is generally low. Once mid-June hits, the humidity rises and doesn't abate until early September.

Yes, they are. The developers must have gotten them for free - they are all over our subdivision.
