I'm Dreaming of A Pink Spring

It's a  bright and beautiful Saturday in New York City, and if I didn't look at the temperature I'd believe it was spring. But it's actually 37 degrees out and the forecast is a dusting of snow, so it's definitely still winter. But it's Pink Saturday in Blog Land and I'm dreaming of a pink, pink spring.

This is a favorite photo from last spring and one of the jewels of New York City, The Rockefeller University. It's a small, lovely campus on the East River devoted to medical and scientific research. I worked here for one year in the 1970's and now am very fortunate to be part of a clinical trial. I took this picture after one of my visits last spring and think it's perfect for thoughts of a pink spring.

I got a good night's sleep -- relatively speaking -- and after a great breakfast of paleo pancakes I'm moving through my list of home errands. I'm off to do a few non-home errands and then will meet my friend Mary for a visit to the Metropolitan Museum. Definitely one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday.  I'm also looking forward to visiting my blog buddies -- long overdue -- and leisurely reading the New York Times. I am savoring the thought that it's a long weekend.   

Wishes for a cozy and very relaxing Saturday!

'Round these "here" parts we think 37 degrees IS spring.

I kid you not - - - yesterday when it was about 18 degrees I saw an adult male, older than me, walking along in gym shorts and tennis shoes - - - bare legs all exposed and everything.

That's Wisconsin for ya!

What a lovely explosion of color ... it must be amazing to see it in person!

Hope yours and Mary's afternoon at the museum was enjoyable, and your weekend especially cozy!

Even though I'm holed up for the cold, snowy weekend, your pink spring photo brought me out of my blahs for a moment.

We had snow flurries here this afternoon! With the sun shining, even! In all my years, I have never seen that before!

I enjoyed seeing all the blooms. It'll be quite awhile here before we have them. With several inches of new snow on the ground here, I do appreciate seeing some color. Hope you have a restful and relaxing Sunday!

It was the same here - bright and sunny - but cold. Still, the bulbs are starting to bloom . . . (hope they make it, it's still pretty early.)
Shavous Tov!!!
