TheDailyBeast: Nature Gone Awry: Ticks, Plants & Birds, Oh My!

Plants & Flowers

Nothing represents spring better than the beautiful flowers that bloom once the season has sprung. But when warm weather comes early, those flowers can bloom prematurely, leaving them vulnerable should winter weather kick in again. If an early flower is killed by a frost, the plants will not bloom again. Cherry blossoms, Washington D.C.’s most colorful attraction—second, of course, to the personalities of the people’s elected representatives—are already blooming and will reach their peak earlier than expected, sometime between March 20 and 23. This year is the 100th anniversary of the trees, and some scientists predict that by 2080 the cherry blossoms may be blooming 29 days in advance.
