Look at the Buds!


I've been waiting all winter for this!

Back in November, I wrote about the beautiful Fall foliage. But that only lasted a few weeks. Once they all fell onto the ground, turned into brown mush, and got swept away by the rain and wind, I've been seriously missing the greenery.

These bare trees just don't do it for me.

They're just so depressing, standing up there all spindly and empty.

A few days ago I started to notice...


Yes, I'm that excited. (I don't think I ever grew up).

Has Spring sprung? I don't think it has quite yet, but it sure looks like it's coming soon.

We've made progress - check out what I noticed today on Broadway:

And in Queens:

I get a lot of strange looks when I go around snapping pictures of trees. 

One of my favorite parts about Spring are the beautiful yellow daffodils that emerge. I started seeing evidence of their imminent arrival in some planters around my neighborhood today:

The earth is waking up! And now that we have a whole extra hour of daylight, we can make the most of the beautiful weather and finally spend some more time outdoors. 

I'm looking forward to the flowers.

What an awesome world we live in.

Happy Spring!
