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.

Josh Long, 14, of Holland, Bucks County, digs the boards set up in the fountain at the Philadelphia Museum of Art yesterday, a gloriously sunny first day of spring. The season started officially at 3:26 p.m., so think of today as the first FULL day of spring.

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.

There are a number of ways to determine when - positively, no doubt about it - spring has arrived. Some people rely on the groundhog. Others say it's opening day of the Philadelphia Flower Show. Many put their faith in outdoor flora: the first crocus, snowdrop or forsythia. There are bird-watchers who insist it's not official until they have sighted their first robin. And there are at least a few who simply go by the weather - the first warm, sunny, nice-time-for-strolling day is the start of spring.

NEW YORK - Maybe it was the unrelenting summer heat, or perhaps American designers are acknowledging the varying paths women are taking on their life journeys. Either way, many of the spring 2017 collections presented at this week's New York Fashion Week were filled with nomadic references that made them comfortable, travel-friendly, and, believe it or not, a touch dressier than recent seasons. Designers like Diane von Furstenberg featured tops blousy yet tailored. Tory Burch's printed skirts continue to hover midcalf to midankle in both pencil and A-line silhouettes.

Although it has been out of service for most of the last 40 years, the old Spring Garden School on 12th Street between Ogden and Parrish Streets holds endless fascination for David Cleghorn. "It is an incredibly beautiful building," said Cleghorn, senior vice president of real estate development of Help USA, one of the nation's largest providers of affordable housing and social services. "There are still textbooks from the 1970s sitting on the desks," he said. The graffiti inside the building is "high-quality street art," Cleghorn said, and "we will certainly try to salvage as much as we can. " That last statement provides a clue to the future of Spring Garden School No. 1, designed by Irwin Thornton Catharine, who from 1920 to 1937 was chief architect of the Philadelphia public school system.

As part of New York Fashion Week, which kicks off this morning, plus-size super model and Sports Illustrated swimsuit alum Ashley Graham will debut an eponymous collection of ready-to-wear lingerie. The runway, produced by New York production company Style360 and underwritten by South Korean car maker Kia Motors, promises to be star-studded: Kylie Jenner will be there, as will 19-year-old model Jordyn Woods. "Who would think a size-16 model would have an event this big, with so many confirmed celebrities?"

I periodically revisit communities and neighborhoods in the Town by Town series, especially the ones that have impressed me as up and coming. For example, I went back to Hatboro last December - nine months after my Town by Town visit - to spend some more time walking around its ever-evolving downtown. When I visited Silverdale for July 24's entry, I stopped by Sellersville and Souderton - the latter to see how the train station project was faring. I don't usually write about these visits, because my motto is "one Town by Town to a customer and no refunds allowed.

Murals in Philadelphia have been created, variously, to uplift underserved communities, honor local leaders, fight blight, and amplify grassroots causes. Now, in a swath of the city's Callowhill area, they're advancing a new goal: rebranding a neighborhood. Artists commissioned by the city's Mural Arts Program are installing nine permanent and temporary murals that, collectively, create a revolving outdoor gallery billed as "Spring Arts District. " That also happens to be the identity that developer Craig Grossman, who sought and partially funded the project, is trying to cultivate in this gentrifying stretch between Eighth and 12th, from Noble to Spring Garden Streets.

With the last exam handed in, with prom dresses packed away, and the final bell of the year poised to ring, more than 2,400 students, teachers, and even the school cop at Spring-Ford Senior High erupted Friday afternoon in the ultimate end-of-school fireworks. Actually, make that "Firework. " In less than four manic minutes preceded by eight months of preparation, the entire student body joyously lip-synched Katy Perry's 2010 hit for a fast-moving Steadicam as it passed through the crowded halls amid cascades of smoke and confetti.

Most cooks in spring think "pie" when they see rhubarb. At Vernick Food & Drink, the pink-stemmed beauty has instead inspired a frothy cocktail ode to spring. Beverage director JB Bernstein clearly takes his local produce cycles as seriously as the kitchen, with a regular "in season" section on Vernick's drink menu. So he does his best to extract the essence of his star ingredient, macerating the stalks (not cooking them) for two days with sugar, lime and vanilla. A vivid dose of that strained sweet-tart syrup is then blended with dry gin, herbal Contratto aperitif, more lime, and then an egg white, which turns the whole thing into a foamy pink cloud when vigorously shaken.

Seasonal spring eating is all about shoots and sprouts. Tomato and cucumber plants may be in the ground, but they are far from bearing fruit. Spring is a season to celebrate green: emerald lettuces, celadon kale, jade green asparagus, tender chartreuse spring peas, and a palette of herbs. The earliest crops in my garden are always the spinach planted last fall, the garlic that sprouts from last year's harvest, and the arugula and cilantro that went to seed and self-sowed all about in bare patches, waiting for the rain and warm weather of May. Asparagus has popped up in gardens and is coming in abundance from South Jersey farms.
