Sarah Maslin Nir, in today’s New York Times Metropolitan Section: ACCORDING to the calendar, it’s been spring for the past five weeks. But you could have fooled me.
And me, for that matter. We’ve had a couple of teases, like Wednesday, which started cloudy and chilly, but by early afternoon it was sunny and the temperature flirted with seventy. But today, Easter Sunday and the seventh day of Passover, dawned sunny and, if not warm, at least with a promise of warmth. It was a promise fulfilled. As I went out for my early morning walk, I passed these tulips near the Pierrepont Street entrance to the Promenade. More photos and text after the jump.

Cherry blossoms and forsythia are already past their peak.
