signs of spring in philly

It seems as though the minute I landed in Philadelphia, it was Spring. The past few days have been unseasonably warm. I ate a Geno’s cheese steak in 70+ degree weather! The outdoor basketball courts and city playgrounds were packed. Fruit lined the narrow city streets of the Italian Market. On a conference break, I had Chocolate Peanut Butter Ripple ice cream in a pretzel cone. Pretzel cone, more on that later. Spring bulbs were in bloom by Independence Hall, Rocky and “The Thinker.” All pleasant Philadelphia Spring surprises.

  1. So cool. I used to live in Philly a few years back, and I remember the long lines at the Italian ice places when Spring was starting (free samples on the first day)!

    1. Somebody needs to find a way to make a pretzel cone in their kitchen. Like, YOU. I’ll wiggle most of the day tomorrow for ya! They’ll think that’s what Midwesterners do – ha.

    1. it was soooo good. when the ice cream started melting, and that chocolatey peanut butter mixed with the baked pretzel salt – HELLO YUM. you must get one if you are ever In Philadelphia.
