I saw hot pink blooms in Central Park this morning. Dotting the bridle path, showing off. It’s spring as of this weekend and New York knows it. Women are pairing exercise shorts with sweatshirts (the mid-season clothing combination so good that even Diana couldn't resist its charms). People are sipping iced coffees. The dogs are walking with their tongues hanging out like it’s summer 2019; the pets of this metropolis do not have a care in the world.
