Plum time warp to earlier spring

The plum trees with purple leaves lost their blossoms in my neighborhood weeks ago, yet just over a mile to the west, in an adjacent neighborhood, I found one that was in the early stages of leafing out, and still had blossoms.

When we speak of microclimates in San Francisco, they are much smaller than you think they are, sometimes just a few blocks that are in a different season than the adjacent ones.
