The earliest New York City daffodils emerge on a low hill beyond the underpass at 79th Street and Riverside Park heading toward the Hudson River and the boat marina. The sun beams brightly on that hilly spot. In full view myriad daffodils scatter under a blue sky by a brick retaining wall. I knew from past experience that they would be opening up now, with the hint of warmer weather and the longer days. Not yet in full bloom, their golden color sparkles against their green leaves and in a few more days, they will greet as a "crowd, a host of golden daffodils...tossing their heads in sprightly dance." Stay tuned.
