up twenty or thirty days earlier on Stern and southern sides of England than in Belgium, and nearly at the same time as in the north of Italy and south of France ; but at flowering time, and maturing of fruit, that advance is lost, and maturing of fruit is earlier in Belgium, France, and Italy. Flowering of plants takes place twenty days earlier in Belgium than in Berlin, or in any of the northern parts of Germany or the south of Sweden, thirty days earlier than in New York, and two months earlier than in Lapland, but the ripening of fruit does not occur till fifty days later than in the latter places.—Pioneer Farmer.
