maple, dandelions, kiss me at the gate, daffodils, and the oak trees are budding.

Have not seen the oaks. What variety are they?

Red oaks mainly. I'm sure the white oaks are as well. Red oaks will have points on the end of the leaves, white oaks are rounded on the end. In each there are sub species or different looking ones.

Not a great picture but it is of some blooming broccoli and it had one of the feral bees from around here on it. I can tell by the colour.

Just looked up your location compared to mine. It is roughly the same latitude but you seem to be a couple weeks ahead of us.
