This is a photo I took years ago. (I was too busy to get my camera this morning.)
The trees are confused as well because our mostly 50 F degree weather has them wondering if they forgot to mark their calendars for the day of spring. While day length is the primary trigger, this warmer weather does get some sap flowing early and the yellow-bellied sap sucker is busy at the front yard with my sugar maple.
Some trees look like they are ready to bud, but the ends are still hard and dark, so not as ready as they appear upon closer inspection.
Things are still a misty, greenish gray like a Sherlock movie without that potential for danger, just the exotic sense of mystery. This poor dogwood at the edge of the main road was hit by the mower when it was small and struggles each year to get upright. The two in the distance are newer and were planted by the landscapers last year. I am waiting for spring dogwood blossoms to cover the branches.
