This is two months early here, but magnolia, fruitless plum, cherry, heather.  Sugar maples, alder, hazlenut are throwing whatever those things are.  Sure am worried about a hard freeze.  We usually get one in March.

Henbit and some dandelions is what I'm seeing on the ground now. Not good at identifying trees yet.

Bloom envy from cold crappy weather.  For a change the winter here in the NW  has been relatively warm and dry.  This is evident, even before the end of February, apple and cherry trees are in full bloom.  Crocus is up.  Red maple is blooming.  Big leaf maple is going off soon.  Hazlenut in bloom.  Various ground covers in bloom such as Vinca. 

Sorry for your cold, but loving this warm winter here.
