Spring? Where is it?

Although the sun is very bright and sitting indoors one might be fooled into thinking it’s summer, we haven’t even reached the actual spring!

In theory it is spring (well, looking at the calendar), but when you look out the window all you can see is snow… It’s not very pleasant in the morning as the temperature still drops far below zero (for e.g. to -11C) and on a windy day you certainly would prefer spending time somewhere by a fire place.

But just to remind ourselves that sometime soon (hopefully) we will be able to work in the garden and sunbathe and hide away the heavy coats, gloves and scarves, we keep buying spring flowers!

At the moment I’ve gone for yellow daffodils and tulips. And probably tomorrow will go out to get some birch branches that should be covered in little green leaves just before Easter.

Oh, and just after this weekend the sowing season begins!

Spring is on its way, Kristina -- until it reaches you, I'll enjoy your sunny daffodils and tulips!
