We are on April’s doorstep in NYC, and even though its cold and rainy (as early spring should be, in my opinion) the trees are starting to swell with buds. Seriously, take a peek at the trees in the picture above. The tips of every branch are flushed with red and the little leaflets are already beginning to unfurl. The daffodils along my street have pushed their way out of the ground and they should be opening their blossoms any day now. I’ve seen some pretty purple crocus, and the rosebushes have tentative red leaves sprouting along the greening vines.The lighter evenings have been throwing me off, too. My internal clock makes me think its 5:30 based on the light, and when I look up at the clock its 7:30… yikes!
