The First Leaf-Out Close to Home
Those are leaves up there all right. The first New York City Street tree to leaf out on my block is Prunus padus, the European Birdcherry. (not the greatest pics snapped with my laundry in tow, admittedly, but they will do for marking the occasion this year) And the Callary Pears look like they're itching to get going soon too.
