The blast of color is really what still amazes me about spring. The grass goes from a dull, dry, brown at the end of March, to a tropical - green by mid April. While I enjoy the long season of green and jungle like dense foliage, the colors in April are still the biggest part of the show.

This was near New Haven, CT (90 miles east of NYC):

At what point along the East Coast does the grass start to remain green year round?

That’s kind of a tough one. It matters how quick temps warm up/get cold from what I’ve observed. Also, what types of grass they plant and if they water it winter seems to make a difference.

I know that here along the coast from Connecticut to southern Delaware (where I travel most often), the grass is green from early April to maybe late November. If early December is mild, my grass may still be semi-green until mid-December. My lawn is normally brown/yellowish from late December through late March. It's not just the cold, but the dry air seems to just make it like straw.

Farther down the East Coast (maybe Virginia south), they plant certain grasses that can handle the heat and intense sun from what I’ve heard (I think they call it St. Augustine grass/Bermuda grass, but I’m not sure on that), so the grass is green all year. However, the far lower East Coast (South Georgia through Florida) has a fairly sharp dry season in winter. So while grass that is watered all winter is a lush green (you always see sprinklers going in winter in Florida – lol), grasses that is not irrigated can look sun pulverized and yellowish until the rains come back in May.

The compliment is appreciated I gift you with a great picturesque video of the area (that channel is dope in general) for your enjoyment.

Yesterday I saw the first fruit trees start to flower. This was near the fjord in Trondheim on April 28th (Grillstad area), where several trees was flowering, very nice!

Apple, plum and pear tree are all flowering in my garden now, very nice. And my vine is green.
Trondheim is a green city and this sudden warm weather in spring has led to huge amount of pollen being released in a short time span. This is even visible in this image I took down at the pier in Trondheim today (wide angel), floating on the sea.

Flowers and blooms are at their peak along the middle East Coast of the USA. In another month the heat and sun will pulverize them and the dark green will fade to light green - lol.
