Springtime in The City

I went to the east coast two weeks ago with a long black puffy coat, layers of cashmere sweaters, hats, gloves, and boots. While I was there it snowed twenty-one inches in New York City, and rained buckets in Boston.

But by the time I left, the temperatures had risen. I bought a new, lightweight coat to wear as I maneuvered the city. In the greenmarket there were few spring vegetable offerings, but the tulips -- oh the tulips!

In my dream life I could fill my arms with bouquets of tulips, carry them home, and put them in vases in every room of my house.
