Some pics I took this morning. More deciduous trees are leafing though some areas still look fairly bare.

Not many loblolly pines in your area. Our live oaks are doing their annual lose their leaves in early March to get them in late March. Pin oaks budding, peach trees flowering.

Loblolly pines are more predominate to my north. https://www.researchgate.net/figure/...fig3_259756145

Much of Kisatchie Nat'l Forest in central Louisiana was originally longleaf pine forest.

I didn't know that. Was it replaced due to the logging industry?

Much of the native longleaf forest was logged around the beginning of the 20th century. Then loblollies were grown afterward since they were easier to grow than longleafs. In more recent years longleaf forest has been restored in Kisatchie.

I would presume that the trees and shrubs in the DFW metroplex aren’t a whole lot further behind in growth and blooming than in Alexandria Louisiana......meanwhile in Indianapolis, the only blooming plants so far are the crocuses.

Otherwise everything in Indianapolis is still brown and dead looking for the most part, apart from the bulb flowers pushing up out of the soil

I know this is autumn in the southern hemisphere but may as well post here.

Went for a ride around the Swan River in Perth today. Around 40-45km loop.

Looking over the riverside southern suburbs:
