FC... pruning can improve the fruit but it may detract from the looks. My experience is with with apple trees... it's difficult to get a good balance, especially with a tree over 30 years old. While orchards look great, even pruned, a tree or two pruned for fruit bearing may not look so great.

Carol, we've had a couple of impressario mockingbirds in our neighborhood in recent years. There is one little guy who perches on the top of my next-door neighbor's ham radio tower and sings his heart out. The whole routine takes about 10 minutes and includes seagulls, hawks, and car alarms. He sings for 30 seconds or so then jumps about 18 inches above the tower and reversed his direction and continues the song. He has the neighborhood covered that way!

Cardinals are passing through now. And robins are still here. Both will move on soon.

Here in New Jersey we've got 48 hours of wonderful weather ahead. I woke up to 48F and it's supposed to hit 60F today. I should be able to spend some time in the yard seeing just what is happening. Everything is still very soggy, but I can at least clean up a little bit... Bobert's Iris I took home from Getaway came through the winter wonderfully, I'm not sure when I would see signs of the Solomon's Seal...anyone know??

LTS, If I'm coming over your way in the next couple of weeks I'll try to drop some off, that is if it hasn't been eaten by the fish, although they don't seem to be touching it yet. Arrived home from Miskin on Monday, to a glorious spring evening and started planning what I need to do in the garden.Then yesterday cold, wet and very dull with a temperature of 6 degrees. Oh well at least we had fine weather over the weekend, and we should have lighter evenings now.

Southish eastern Alabama, USA. Today is my favorite kind of weather. Sunny and clear, no humidity, and between 75 and 80 degrees F.

Even the sycamore is blooming now. The Chattahoochee River is almost at flood stage and threatens to submerge the riverwalk. Leftovers from storms up in the northern part of the state, I guess.

There is a bird that hangs out in one of our trees in the mornings, I'm guessing it's a mockingbird, that has taken to learning a new call every week or so and using that one call repeatedly until moving on to a new one. One week it was immitating a cat (it definitely wasn't a catbird because I know what they sound like and this was different... it wasn't a cat, either). Another week it was immitating a dog. This morning it was immitating a bobwhite quail (I know it wasn't a realy bobwhite quail because it didn't sound exactly right, it was morning, and I've never heard a bobwhite quail around here). I have no idea where this bird heard that particular call.

April showers bring May flowers. Here in SE New Brunswick, Canada, we are having April showers. No way these are March showers. I'm just thankful for the early spring because we've had 3 to 4 inches of rain in the past 24h and it could have been snow instead.

Three years ago in the spring I dug up a beautiful huge spiderwort in the woods across the road from my house. I planted it in the front bed and forgot about it, but every spring it comes back and is glorius. It has just this week emerged and started blooming. There are some small flowers that come up in the lawn later on that are spiderwort also, but this is a large plant, a couple of feet tall and blooms and blooms and blooms. Each individual flower lasts a day, but it keeps putting out new buds. I wish I could find more or cultivate this one. It doesn't seem to spread.

CarolC and others, please tell us or remind us where you live when you post your spring reports. It's frustrating to try to guess your whereabouts.

Reporting from a suburb of Washington DC: It has been gray, cool, and rainy here for about a week, and I'm longing for signs of spring. The grass is a little greener, even on this side of the fence, and the honeysuckle vines growing over the fence are starting to turn green. There is bright green moss on a lot of things but that's because of the rain.

We harvested our first strawberry of the season a few days ago. And it did have just one bite taken out of it by the squirrel. I cut around the bite and we ate it anyway. It was, after all, our first strawberry of the season.

Just about everything is in bloom or in leaf (except for the sycamore tree in our yard), dogwoods, redbuds, oaks, maples, pears, all kinds of clover. I saw some Quaker ladies (bluets) blooming a couple of weeks ago. That really took me by surprise.

Yesterday and today we have flooding rains, thunderstorms, and a couple of days worth of end-to-end tornado watches, probably until some time tomorrow.

When I first moved to this area, JtS told me that it almost never rains here. The last year or two it deems like it has rained about fifty percent of the time. It's quite a climate change for this area.

Oddest thing. Here it is March 27 in the lower elevations of Texas and it was snowing for a while this morning, according to the weather folks. I didn't see it (it doesn't make much noise on the roof, for starters, so I didn't look out!) but reports have a mix of snow and rain here in the county. It wasn't freezing, so I don't think any of our tender plants were injured.

There was warmth! And sun today! I wore sandals for the first time since I arrived in Scotland seven months ago. And I don't like shoes, normally I wear sandals or go barefoot ten months of the year. Funny how things are comparative, we've just barely made it back into what I would consider normal winter temperature, but since it's a lot warmer than it was it feels like it's actually warm. Having bad weather all the time really makes me appreciate the good weather more.

The 40-50 degree weather has been working on the snow that landed on us on the 11th and 12th. It's disappearing into rotten, dirty piles, but disappearing.

But . . . woke up to snow this morning. Maybe and inch or so, but it's still doing it and I have to make the tricky walk up the hill to the car, get it cleared off and drive 17 miles to work in this shhhhhhtuff.

I was hoping my poor old falling apart '91 Grand Am with the useless heater/defroster wouldn't have to slog through any more snow. I pick up my "new" 2000 Saturn wagon tomorrow. Sigh.

Well, the snowbanks have subsided from six inches above my neighbor's six foot high fence to about 18 incehes below and instead of three inches of ice on the sidewalks, we now have an inch of slush. But the male cardinals are singing their mating calls and the sparrows are using the mud puddle in front of my apartment building as a public bath, so it shouldn't be too much longer. Although, in Maine, those are always famous last words.

The blossoms on the big leaf maples in front of our house have started to open. Every morning my car and the driveway is covered with large clumps of moss and lichen, that have been dislodged from the maple's branches by varied thrushes, eagerly seeking insect grubs overhead. In another week the car will be further decorated by the sticky tendrils and gum that fall from the blossoms.

The King apple, which developed a 45 degree tilt after the last heavy snowfall this winter, has leafed out and the only falling snow now, is pale pink and carpets the swordfern below the flowering cherry.

One of the rhodos has burst into full bloom and a rufus hummingbird is staking his territory in a buzz bomb display over the magenta blossoms of the salmon berries.

Spring is definitely here and wonderfully early this year.

We spotted a couple of great egrets in the creek this morning--the kids jokingly called them "Texas flamingos." I went looking for a very elegant photo to represent the birds this morning, but found this one at the same time. I couldn't resist! They're such graceful birds that I suppose the photo is the bird equivalent of catching a person when they're chewing or blinking--is a micro-moment captured on film.

Cats, thanks so much for the link to the
UK phenology site. It's great! I didn't even know what phenology is. For those as ignorant as I, I can tell you that phenology is the study of the times of recurring natural phenomena especially in relation to climate. Such data have been collected in the UK for a few hundres years and in parts of Asia for much longer. This website gives dates of firsts (first blackberry blossom, etc.) in different parts of the UK over a period of years. Everyone is invited to observe and contribute. I'd love to. I keep similar notes for myself. However, I live in the Northeast USA. Does anybody know of any similar organizations closer to my home?

The weather here (suburb of Washington DC) is getting sunnier and warmer, so spring must show some signs soon.
