There is a new national Phenology project starting this year. Details are available at the website below.

"Join us this spring in collecting important climate change data on the timing of leafing and flowering of trees and flowers in your area through Project BudBurst. This national citizen science field campaign targets native tree and flower species across the country. By recording the timing of the leafing and flowering of native species each year, scientists can learn about the prevailing climatic characteristics in a region over time. With your help, we will be compiling valuable environmental information that can be compared to historical records to illustrate the effects of climate change."

Oh wow... that's exciting, yet in some way frustrating :P. I've been trying to get more participants for the Wikiversity bloom clock, I wonder if they'd want to combine the efforts?

The wiki one is a lot easier to use, but theirs is much prettier at the moment.

I have a clove currant that has bloomed very reliably on April 12th every year. It bloomed April 1st this year.
