ash trees in leaf, summer soak?

The ash trees in this part of west Oxfordshire are coming into leaf and their flowers are dying back.

The ashes seem really early this year, although I've not had a chance to check the oaks. (Ash are ubiquitous in and around the village but oaks are found only some way off - so far as I know.)

Last year, ashes were late, way after the oaks, and proved the old rhyme right - summer splash (though there is apparently no scientific basis for this!). Are we in for a summer soak?
