This spring is unusually early and warm. Today the temperature was around 26C, and that is not the first time this season.
The leaves are already sprouting from buds when it is barely mid April. One Japanese Maple tree has already bloomed and shed its flowers. Another silver maple tree is in bloom today. Our neighbor's magnolia trees has flowers that will open in a few days now. The lilacs are starting to show leaves as well.
All the above usually happens in the first week of May in other years, so we are 3 week early!
In New Brunswick, migratory birds are early too.
