Leaves at last!

Maple leaves in Moncton 24 May 2011

Trees in Greater Moncton have been budding for several weeks now but leaves have finally broken through this week.

Cold, damp weather with little sunshine has delayed budding and blossoming this spring by 2-3 weeks.

Weather officials say a comparison to last year can’t be made since May 2010 was unusually warm and dry.
