Welcoming Spring Philadelphia Style

We enjoyed this first beautiful Sunday in Spring walking in Fairmount Park along the Schuylkill River. Rowers were on the river enjoying the mild weather and sunshine. Later in the afternoon, we strolled through the Philadelphia Art Museum.

I always look forward to seeing this first harbinger of Spring.

I was surprised to see beautiful blossoming trees so early.

I loved these charming miniature deer from Japan.
