Spring 2012 vs 2013
I used to live in the Twin Cities. And when I went on GoogleEarth recently to check out my old haunts, I noticed that the image date was April 3, 2012. And the street trees were already leafing out because of the unprecedented warmth in March 2012. And this year....well....it looks like there is no sign of spring weather yet with cold conditions forecast for maybe another week or two, which would take us to almost May. So, I would love to hear from those of you who are long time resident gardeners.....how late is spring this year? And is the 1 year change from 2012 to 2013 in terms of bud break unprecedented?
