Map-2012 Migration of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds

Chemocurl zn5b/6a Indiana(zone 5/6)March 17, 2012

I thought folks might like to see if they have arrived yet, or if they are getting close to arriving. Since so much of the country had a very mild winter, and Spring seems to have arrived early, I wondered if it might make the Spring Migration earlier.

Plants and things here seem to be about 2-3 weeks earlier than what is normal.

I got word this AM, that the Cincinnati Daffodil Show had been moved up by 2 weeks because they feared they wouldn't have many/any blooms left at their 'regularly scheduled' show time.

Are things awakening and blooming early for 'you'? I've really been enjoying all my new, and old daffodils, among other things.

I haven't seen any hummingbirds yet. Then again, the only blooms in our yard right now are tulips, daffodils, iris, harlequin flowers, azaleas, and pansies... a few dianthus.

The brugmansia and lantana are showing green two months early. The ginger lilies, cannas, asclepias, and elephant ears seem a bit early too. Passion flower, clematis, columbine, and gerbera daisies all have large flower buds on them. Easter lilies started popping up in December, oddly enough. First year I've noticed them doing that. Oh! The big box store astilbes that I thought had died started coming up earlier this month. Very excited about those!

If I had known spring was going to come this early... Well, it seemed more like summer a few days this past week... I would have started seeds in early February or late January. Now I'm scrambling to get everything sown before it becomes too warm! A few cold nights ahead, so hopefully the late winter sown containers will catch up with the others.
