Corner of 73rd Avenue and Francis Lewis Boulevard, 24 March, 5.30 in the afternoon. I recall a picture I took at the same corner, perhaps 9 years back, maybe 7, of daffodils in snow. This year, no snow. Not down here. We did great a 'flash snow' upstate, in the Catskills, this past weekend.
I took this picture near the Phoenicia School, looking north. Looks wintry. And it did, but snow began to melt that day, and was almost fully gone by Sunday.
Magnolias trees have been blooming with lush blossoms this year. They, and other flowers, seem especially vibrant.
This set of forsythia bushes is in front of a house on Lawrence Avenue.
This gorgeous tree stands in front of the Hewlett Woodmere Public Library.
A budding tree in Brookville Park, a favorite walking spot of mine.
On a drive along side streets through southeastern Queens, another pretty spring sight.
