If you're eagerly waiting for springtime you can count on the wait being one week shorter compared to the last 100 years.

Modern-day measurements compared to what was seen in late 1800s and early 1900s shows spring leaves and flowers arriving on average one week, sometimes as much as two weeks, earlier.

The findings come from the Swedish National Phenology Network at the University of Agricultural Sciences, based on gathered reports from the whole of Sweden.
