The red maples are flowering now.  Look closely.  These aren’t tiny leaves, they’re flowers!

    I do hope a frost kills some of those “flowers” so we won’t have as many “spinners” this year as we did in 2008.

    Unfortunately I have a similar view: and it warns me that I’ll be sick with allergies for about a week………………

    Fortunately that happened a week ago and I can now go on to enjoy the flowers, spinners, birds on the flowers, etc.
