Spring is springing early in Connecticut and I have more than anecdotal observations to prove it. I have multiple years of plant phase data recorded by me and other citizen scientists on the Project Budburst website. Project Budburst is a very cool project that asks plant watchers across the US to record first leaf, first flower, first ripe fruit, end of season leaf color changes, and other plant phenophases. Trained scientists then use these observations in their research.

Last year's early spring warm up in Connecticut brought … as one would expect … earlier bloom times for many plants. But it may not just be one season of warmth that's causing plants to bloom sooner.
