Now's the time:
The magnolias on the sunny side of Back Bay's streets are blooming full blast, and plenty of other trees are blooming as well. You'll find a cloud of pink wherever you look. The first fuzzy green leaves are appearing everywhere, and there are tulips, azaleas, hyacinths, crocuses, daffodils, and pansies. You can smell a spring bouquet in the air. I recommend that you take a slow stroll to take it all in now, before all those pretty pink petals fall, turning into the equivalent of banana peels on our sidewalks.
Of course, if you're busy, you can wait a couple of weeks until the shady side of our streets catch up and start to bloom. As far as those trees are concerned, it's still March. And after the magnolias finish, we'll still have flowering crabs and dogwoods with their own special beauty.
