Is Spring Here Yet?

I took this photo yesterday at the promenade by the Rockefeller Center on 50th Street off of 5th Avenue. The weather was almost 60°F (15°C), which was probably the warmest day of the year so far. The greenery planted around the fountains gave a hint of Spring coming but we are expecting another cold front and snowy weather this weekend.

So are you ready for Spring? I am having Spring Fever!!

Here we say it's "primavera a mare" (spring at sea) which comes a month earlier than the real spring.
And it comes: it's here...

That greenery you talked about looks like some of mine. It is a pretty picture.

Off topic here, sorry, but I like the view! It makes a welcome change from the Rockefeller seen with eyes upwards!

This photo looked like summer at first glance but now I can see by the cold light on the concrete and marble that it's still winter. But the green sure looks good - I can't wait for spring!

Looks so different than the holiday scene.

Waiting patiently for spring, but so far I don't see it coming.

I am so ready for Spring! Bring it on! We keep getting small glimpses here in the UK but I think it's just teasing. I aim to visit New York during each one of the seasons but have only done winter so far. It may take some years!
