Daffodils are a lovely and welcome sight, so colourful! Ours have come through but haven't bloomed yet.

My daffodils haven't bloomed yet either. A few of the crocus are up. Looking forward to all the rest.

Memo to self: go to Central Park and look for blooming things. The only thing that has grown here is a homeless person camped out on the stoop of a vacant house down the block.

But I decided to splurge and get a ticket for the final Carnegie Hall recital of my fave opera singer, Frederica von Stade. (I first saw her perform when I was 11, at Glyndebourne...) Scored something in the middle of row B on the main floor!

I'm looking forward to it. If I didn't like her music we wouldn't be going, the tickets weren't cheap that's for sure!
