The magnolia and ume have put forth tiny buds. But it may take them a few weeks or even months to come out here. So far, an amateur gardener could go on taking off for a while.
Forty meters is now closed for North America by 15Z while it was open there until 16 or 17Z a few weeks ago. It might skip less for the West Coast soon. Twenty meters may explode for Eu or NA at night in our time not too long from now.
I am looking forward the arrival of spring in dual senses.
