One of the good things about taking pictures on a regular basis is it does record the annual shifts in timing. The photo below was taken last year on April 16th, I could have taken the exact same photo today on March 15th. It might be a few days off, it looks like there are some big white Jeanne D’Arc crocus in the background, those aren’t up yet. But, still it is definitely not a month, even half a month off. The daylilies are at about the same point, they may never have really been halted by this year’s winter.
