He saw the first “Snowdrops” of the Season in the Shakespeare Garden, Central Park NYC. They saw these Snowdrops together on the High Line:

dievca spotted the Crocus’ first! On the High Line, in the rain:

The first flowers of Spring always bring a little bit of competition and a lot of Joy.

Snowdrops on the High Line

LONE Flower, hemmed in with snows and white as they
But hardier far, once more I see thee bend
Thy forehead, as if fearful to offend,
Like an unbidden guest. Though day by day,
Storms, sallying from the mountain-tops, waylay
The rising sun, and on the plains descend;
Yet art thou welcome, welcome as a friend
Whose zeal outruns his promise! Blue-eyed May
Shall soon behold this border thickly set
With bright jonquils, their odours lavishing 
On the soft west-wind and his frolic peers;
Nor will I then thy modest grace forget,
Chaste Snowdrop, venturous harbinger of Spring,
And pensive monitor of fleeting years!
1819.
