Canada plum opens petals to-day and leafs. Domestic plum only leafs. Summer yellowbird.
P. M. - To Beeches.
Young red maples are generally later to leaf than young sugar maples; hardly began before yesterday; and large white are not so forward as young sugar. Muhlenberg’s willow leafed four or five days. Young yellow birch leaf, say two days. In Callitriche Pool hear a bullfrog belch or dump. Is that a perserpinaca with finely divided leaves in this pool? Hear a tree-toad, - or, maybe, a woodpecker tapping. A juncus in Hubbard’s Close two feet high and big as a crow’s quill. Round-leafed cornel leaf to-morrow; also pig-nut leaf to-day in some places. The beech leaf-buds are more back[ward], apparently, than chestnut, but some leaves are expanding with the flower-buds, which are now opened so as to show the separate buds. Vaccinium Pennsylvanicum, early blueberry, in bloom; probably may shed pollen. A yellow redpoll still.
