Spring Arrives?

Wednesday was the first day of spring, but Old Man Winter was not leaving without a fight!  Winter claimed the day, bringing our 4th Nor’easter, and dictated that we would spend the 1st day of spring watching the world from our window.

Today the sun arrived and brought with her spring winds.  So, we went looking for evidence of spring…

Bryant Square was covered in snow… nothing found to indicate the emergence of spring.

Around the corner at the NYC Library, we found a small patch of green grass…

…carefully guarded by Patience and Fortitude.  Seemed appropriate.

Walking along 51st street we found a few buds emerging from this tree.

We found this fence poster advertising what seemed to be spring fashions…

But it appeared that no one was foregoing their bulky parkas.

Strolling north to Central Park we finally found a few glimpses of what we were hoping for.

Looks like spring arrived after all, she is just shaking the sleep from her eyes.

  1. We really love these photo essays that you two do! It warmed up nicely today and it almost got us hopeful that spring truly is around the corner 🙂 Really fond of that snow-covered daffodil picture, excellent choice for the featured photograph!
