Has Spring Sprung Late?

Has Spring sprung late? Where can I find data on variations from year to year as to the "starting dates" of certain regional climactic marker events--e.g., leaves fall off the trees; lilacs blooming; first frost? [Particularly looking for data arranged in a visually easy-to-digest way. Also, particularly New England; I ask because Spring in my area feels like it's been slow to come this year, and I don't know if it's just because the weather has been gray that I'm fooling myself, or if the leaves really did pop out later than usual.]
