Apr 8 Aspen trees started blooming, noticed pollen for the first time.
Apr 9 saw some yellow pollen coming in, so the crocus must have started blooming.
Apr 10 first poplar trees starting to bloom.
Maples starting to bud, and tulips staring to push through the dirt
Chionadoxa blooming. High today was +6C, about 43F. First buds on the Winter aconites, Eranthis hyemalis. Showing yellow, anyway.
The Gallanthus, Snowdrops, have toughed out 3 snowfalls since they started blooming. Tough little beggars.
The species crocus have also done the same. Amazing.
Prairie crocus, Anemone pulsatilla, are bursting up, all covered in fur! Should bloom in a week. Will post when they do!
