More Evidence of Spring

New leaves and blossoms on Northen Red Currant in April.

More evidence of an exceptionally early spring here in Southcentral Alaska.  These bright new Northern Red Currant leaves accompanied by blossoms usually show weeks later.  Birch, cottonwood, alder, and many other trees and shrubs are bursting with new leaves as well, adding a broad wash of color across the landscape.
