New York City winters can be long.
Even if we don't get a lot of snow (this winter was fairly mind on that front), the cold, damp weather often hangs around until May.
So, it's always a treat when we have a few warm, sunny days - and flowers start to spring forth!
When returning from a media tour last week, I emerged from Penn Station to find this beautiful sight along 34th Street. The real "miracle" on 34th Street that day was that the crowds were sparse enough for me to stop and snap this pic.
If you come to New York this time of year, the tulips along Park Avenue are also a must-see.
