I have never seen such a magnificent year for my Spring flowering plants -

from the crocus to the lilacs and honey suckle - everything escaped the frost

BUT -

no honey bees!

1. It was pretty unusual here - lots of early flowering trees came out too early -

quite a few magnolia, peach, plum, and crabapples came out got nipped with late frosts. Some things were really confused and bloomed out of typical sequence.

Most recently it was beautiful - lilacs, azaleas - and fast! we are moving quickly into summer here, though it is relatively mild, and quite wet.

2. Minnesota went from snow blowers to lawn mowers in about 2 weeks

It did keep the rabbits off my spring bulbs which are now flowering and the lilacs are just starting to flower.

3. Bees

Tons of bees here- it was very hot yesterday and they were dive-bombing all around the yard as I tried to garden!
