Ok so realistically it's only May 11th.
But the recent spell of fine weather means that everything has bloomed and gone green. Well mostly everything - somethings are still branchy, which then makes them look dead.
And they really aren't dead, it is just still kind of early in the season, and they are just taking their sweet time.
Which reminds me that spring and fall aren't so much seasons as kerfuffles that winter and summer go through to get here.
