This year, spring is later than it was last year. My photos from March 13 of last year show my world looking about the same as April 9 this year. Last year, crabapple leaves peeked out March 19, but this year, they are not yet out on April 9.
This year, it seemed that winter lasted about two and a half weeks past the vernal equinox. But on Sunday, April 7, the winds were howling all day long, and apparently that was the sound of spring blowing in. It looks like warmer temperatures are with us now.
