Last year spring was very early -- second week of March early -- and by this time in April, pots were planted, tulips were blooming, and the leaves on the trees were beginning to provide shade.
All photos were taken on April 13, 2012.
This year, spring is very late. It has just started making its appearance this past week with lots of rain and thundershowers. The grass is finally beginning to green up, the bulbs are now doing more than just poking their heads above the ground, and the trees, well, there are signs of life, but no leaves yet.
Is spring slow in coming this year where you are too?
