Leaves are slowly unfurling on everything else, the quickest have been the tag alders, the maple trees have dropped most of their red flowers. Normally their leaves would be popping too, but I think the cold winter may have delayed them a few days. In the past I've noticed maple leaves usually by the 15th. I'm pretty sure I read that trees leaf out more according to the amount of daylight than by temperature, but who knows? I am not a biologist. I am looking forward to them though.
