Spring has been so different from last year. Last year was warmer and drier than normal, with vegetation greening and blooming very early and, after that, rolling right into drought conditions for remainder of the growing season, which is very long in Arkansas. This year has been much cooler than normal, with plants a month or so behind last year.
This video combines images from both years. Without explanation, one might assume that it was all from the same year. The video segments are all from late March 2012. Interspersed with those segments I’ve included still images – enhanced with digital pan and zoom to simulate motion – from late April 2013. (link to video on YouTube)
