Today is the official first day of spring, and it did not disappoint! It was a whopping 73 degrees today in New York City. The weather is outstanding, and yet, very scary. I hope this is not a peek into a very hot NY summer. On my way home from work today, I stopped dead in my tracks from the scent of this beauty! The Magnolia tree in my neighbor's yard is in FULL bloom! One month ahead of schedule!
