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.

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.

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.

WHAT IS THIS academic world coming to? Tom Brady gets caught with his air compressor on so now they're going to be teaching a four-credit course on "Deflategate" at the University of New Hampshire.

Get ready for the spring bugs.  High on everybody's watch list: the dreaded azalea scale. This looks like mealybugs, and sometimes like very tiny gray turtles. They don't move around much, but spend their time well-protected under waxy covers, sucking the juice from the branches and making the stems sticky with honeydew, which in turn encourages mold to grow, which is ultimately what kills the plant. But the young will be moving out from under cover in the next few weeks, and will be vulnerable to sprays of insecticidal soap.

DON'T expect songs about the undead from Emily Kinney, but the singer has taken inspiration from her time acting on the apocalyptic AMC drama "The Walking Dead. " As she gears up for the August release of her debut album, "This Is War," Kinney is taking her musical chops - already familiar to "Dead" fans from her soothing, songs-around-the-campfire scenes with head zombie fighter Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) - to stages across the country.
