Spring sprung with a hurry. The daffodils appeared overnight, blanketing the hillside by the W190th St. subway stop in a flurry of yellow. The tulips appeared soon after, standing stock straight, confident in their rainbow of beauty. Then the lilacs started, filling the air with sensual perfume. Not to be beaten, the wisteria hung like lacey grapes in fierce floral competition. Now little bluebells are appearing close to the ground increasingly covered with ferns and ivy. The trees have spread a lime-green canopy of electric green new leaves, transforming the skies into a jungle of green that overfills the eyes with abundance.
