Hawthorn in blossom 13 April 2008 (updated)

According to the BBC, hawthorn is blossoming ever earlier, a sign of the seasons shifting. Hawthorn used to be called Mayflower, but according to a gentleman in this report, it is being seen in flower at the end of April. Plenty in flower in mid-April here in Runswick Bay.

Update: Public service science announcement from a botanist in comments.
