Another early bird: Magnolia stellata opening about 10 days ahead of last year.
And a flowering quince, Chaenomeles something, always early. I don't know how its timing compares to years with real winters.
And more pretty plums. There was one of these on the University of Toronto campus that I called the May 1 bush, because that's about when it opened. Now it would be silly to compare here with there, and I don't keep records that would allow me to claim that this too is an early flowering, but wow, things are in bloom - and seemingly more fully than in other years. Some streetscapes here make you stop and stare. Or they should.
Here are pictures of somewhere in Richmond by PSYL (the first two are of trees; the others are bird shots, not relevant to this post but very nice nonetheless).
