Default Shadbush Report

The blooming of Shadbush (forsythia) is supposedly a harbinger of the spring migration on the Hudson. Here is a pic of mine, 850' elevation east of Albany. Looks like we have a long run in front of us. I hope so. How is your's doing?

I don't want to start an arguement here, but forsythia is not shadbush; they are two different species. Both are indicative of warm weather, and the arrival of herring, shad, stripers, though!

The forsythia has been in bloom here for over a week or two, but the shadbush has yet to surface around here. Shadbush is actually a native tree of the Hudson valley called serviceberry, and has white flowers, and very tasty berries in June, similar to blueberries, but actually better, in my opinion! The birds love them, so they don't last long!

Yup it's called shad bush cause the time they bloom . And cause the flower resembles a shad scale when they fall off.

From Wikipedia, for what its worth:

"The taxonomic classification of shadbushes has long perplexed botanists, horticulturalists, and others, as suggested by the range in number of species recognized in the genus, from 6 to 33, in two recent publications."

I am talking about the shit growing in my back yard, that I can't control. Yellow flowers early on, then green and expands exponentially.
