This years weather gives new meaning to March Madness. After last year however, I have yet to hear one person complain. If you look at the first post, since I have lived here in Wooster Square, April 4th was the earliest. These buds (see Sunday’s photo) are going to no doubt be early, but they are taking their sweet time. You can find an odd branch blooming on the corner of Academy and Chapel Streets. But that tree has always been a show off, blooming around Christmas this year too.
Here is a photo of a branch I took every day last year, starting as it just so happened, the very last day of snow before the buds came. March 19, 2011. The latter just at peak.
