Spring Madness

As I have pointed out in previous posts, this city certainly tolerates and embraces eccentric behavior. This guy in the photo was definitely garnering a lot of attention - onlookers looked puzzled trying to understand a grown man with pink bunny ears in the dog run in Washington Square Park, especially when his playful game went on a little too long. And it was not clear that the dog in the photo (or any other) was his - we became more concerned when he started to leave the enclosure with the ears still on and no dog in tow. The weather has been extremely cold for this time of year, so spring fever this is not. Plus, I have already done a Spring Fever posting when we had a nice run of warm days in mid March. In naming this post Spring Madness, it occurred to me that apart from the man in bunny ears, the only madness I have encountered lately is the frustration people are having with the weather and how long it is taking for springtime to arrive. We have had 31 degree nights and mid 40s by day with a chance of snow flurries today! Happy Easter ...

dsole -
Thanks. I find I am taking a camera with me more and more often, making captures like this possible.

Well we're having a freezing Spring out here in Seattle too... only in our case, we also had a Freezing Autumn... followed by a Freezing Winter!

I understand that out East the winter was practically snow free and cherry trees were blooming in January.

But not here! It's been COLD, COLD, COLD since October.

Where's that global warming anyhow?

Happy Easter, even if spring is hiding out somewhere still.
I remember New York City during the first week of April 2003, when one morning I was sitting at the little cafe' at a corner of Washington Square, opposite NYU, watching snowflurries covering up the magnolia blossoms and daffodils. It was a pretty sight, but icy cold for several days.

Looks like he's having fun and the dog too. Isn't that all that matters.

Great cap! He was probably just a visitor exhibiting dog envy. I stop by the dog runs all the time, just to see what the cute pups are up to, because I can't have one right now. I'm not stalking - just admiring.
