Spring, the sweet Spring, is the year's pleasant king; Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring, Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing: Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo! The palm and may make country houses gay, Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day, And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay: The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet, Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit, In every street these tunes our ears do greet: Spring, the sweet Spring!

Spring arrived so suddenly you might have missed its coming if you had the 24-hour flu. Almost overnight the world has gone from a monochromatic brown to a palette of delicate greens and pinks, vivid yellow and purples. In the course of just a few hours on Sunday, daffodils changed from tight buds into full blossoms. The warm sunshine and gentle wind offered perfect enticements to plunk down on a patch of grass and watch the transformation. No need for time-lapse photography; things were moving too quickly.

Ah, spring! What a pleasant surprise. Along the gritty, parking-lot fringes of Arch Street yesterday morn, the daffodils waved on their stems, aching to break the seal on their blossoms. Sport coats got left behind at the office at noon: It was the 60s again, full sun, strolling weather, long lunch. At the Reading Terminal Market, the farmers at the Esh Egg stand had dyed and swirled the standard fare, sprucing up dull shells for Easter. In the morning rush, un-hiberating neighbors hollered greetings.

Gwen Florio is a former Inquirer staff writer who lives in Missoula, Mont. Yo, Philly! Yeah, you. You with the Facebook photos of your backyard barbecues, and the Twitpics of your darn dogwoods, and the whiny e-mail about how hot it is. Knock it off. Because here's what greets me on too many mornings: Snow. Not just lying around the ground, a dingy reminder of winter, but actively coming down out of the sky. Sometimes, just for variety, the wind kicks in and the snow comes down sideways.

Along the Wissahickon, a favorite haunt of nature lovers, spring arrives in many ways. Warmer days and greener trees have walkers and joggers hurrying to the trail. And spruce-up efforts pick up. Yesterday's high of 58 was but a breath of spring, however. Colder weather approaches.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Just a half-hour north of Albany, the exit for Union Avenue beckons off I-87, aka the Northway. Enter and you immediately are drawn back in time. Horses have the right of way on the avenue between Saratoga Race Course and Oklahoma training track. Stay on Union Avenue beyond the track and massive Victorian homes with wraparound porches loom on the way into downtown, where you are greeted by Congress Park and Canfield Casino, both on the National Register of Historic places.

Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: For several years, I've taken a vacation in the spring with three other women, to various cities in Europe. We're Internet friends who met through a hobby; none of us lives in the same town. I found out that this spring's vacation has been planned, and I'm not invited. I emailed the woman I feel closest to, and she said it was because I was worried about money right now, which is true, but not really an answer.

It's fortunate that Adelaide Moschler and Ebo Nunoo have a month-to-month lease on their Germantown apartment. "We have time to be picky," said Moschler, 35, who works for Big Brothers Big Sisters in Center City. That's because the couple have been searching Mount Airy and Germantown for their first house since the spring and continue to come up empty. Of the 40 houses that she and her 38-year-old husband, who is in customer relations for Comcast, have seen, they've made just one offer, $165,000, and "it didn't work out," Moschler said.

For years, Philadelphia's antiviolence groups made weekly pilgrimages to Colosimo's gun shop on Spring Garden Street to protest its lax sales practices. The tiny store was notorious for providing more weapons to street criminals than any other shop in Philadelphia. More than 425 crimes were committed with a firearm bought at Colosimo's, including 10 homicides, during a seven-year stretch in the 2000s, according to Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. So when the U.S. Attorney's Office finally shut down the store in 2009 for selling guns to straw buyers, those groups hailed the event as a watershed in the struggle to make the city a safer place.

So far, what has passed for spring in the Philadelphia area this year has been relatively calm and much too dry. Yet Farmers Insurance reports that examined claims in 2013 and 2014 showed that spring accounted for more than one-third of all homeowners' claims nationwide during that two-year period. April, May, and June saw a 52 percent increase in homeowners' claims over January, February, and March, the claims showed. Twenty-five percent of all homeowners' claims filed during the spring in Pennsylvania were for water-related issues.
