Encroachment.   What I mean by this is that the fruit/ornamental trees are just starting to head into their peak.  This late-push nudges  into flowering shrub, bulb, and perennial time tables that are holding on due to all the cold of the last months.  In sum:  We are in for a fabulous late spring display of color.  Throw in the newly emerging leaves, green grass, and migrating birds and we are in for a real treat (if we can coax the sun to come out again).

I saw Bergenia, Phlox, Plums, Cherries, Pear, Elderberry, and Serviceberry flowering today!
