Spring is finally here! And not a minute too soon. It has been so cold here, in New York, all winter long. But to be fair, the temperature has gradually gotten warmer over the last week or so. However, it really didn't occur to me until I saw a lovely bunch of tulips growing by the curbside right outside my townhouse. The city has been planting them all along my street, and also up and down Park Avenue, here in the Upper East Side. I know it's not a big thing - tulips that is. But it's that kind of detail that makes living in New York such a special treat.
