I live in Maine and the fiddleheads and lilacs and lilies of the valley were about two to three weeks early. They lasted the same amount of time though. i'm beside myself with excitement at the thought of another 2-3 weeks of growing season. Ours is so short. I live for the summer and my gardens. I really shouldn't boast, but I have spinach ready to pick.Yippee!

The growing season will probably be longer, unless there is an early frost. Most perennial flowering plants, bushes and trees will probably flower earlier than usual but for the same length of time, days/weeks, that they usually do. On the perennial flowers if you dead head them you may get longer bloom time or a repeat bloom.

I don't know either but people farther south have longer growing periods because it is warmer longer then for people up north.
I would think a early Spring would just mean a longer growing season.....????

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
