Blooming trees

We set a new record high temperature yesterday for March 14 and may break the record highs for today and tomorrow. According to Chad on WFLI we will have the longest string of days in March with temperatures at or above 70 degrees since 1910. Though it feels like May, it does not look like May. However, some of the trees are beginning to flower. I think the tree below is a maple.
I think this is another maple, but a different species.
Below is some kind of willow.
Some kind of rose (multiflora?) is sprouting leaves.
My neighbor's magnolia tree is getting ready to bloom. In 2009 they were blooming in mid April.

Love the photos. I was entranced by a tree just on the south side of the hospital. They are grand signs of a beautiful spring coming.
Keep photographing flora and fauna.
