This is the very latest, that I can remember, to see the leaves come out on the trees! As we drove north in April, we watched the leaves disappear. They were in full view in the Carolinas, Tennessee and Kentucky. But, by the time we reached Ohio and Michigan, the trees were still winter stark. Usually it is only a week or two after we arrive home before we see those little buds pop out here. Not this year! There are so few leaves, that we have been able to easily watch a couple of robins raise their young ones. There are three little beaks rising up for the worms that mom & dad provide. Soon, they will learn to fly and head off.
