When I took this photo on Saturday, I was excited to see Pittsburgh’s northern magnolias starting to bloom. But now only four days later their flowers are full-blown, the petals are starting to fall, and this picture no longer applies.
Spring is happening too fast this year. The weather is too hot. It will be in the 80’s again today.
I don’t keep an accurate record of blooming times but it seems to me that all the flowers are early this year. Have you noticed it?
Can you tell me how many weeks ahead the blooms are?
