Okay, according to the calendar, it’s winter. But while walking in the park at the weekend I already found the first flowers.
It was so cold outside!
Especially because I had forgotten my gloves at home and was wearing the wrong shoes. I should have looked at the thermometer before I went out, but the whole week before it was so warm outside that I didn’t even think about it.
I am actually too old for such stupid mistakes 😀
As someone with many plant allergies and asthma, I cannot have flowers or plants at home.
But when I find them in nature, I can enjoy them and find them beautiful.
I’m always so happy when I discover the first flowers. There are not many yet, but still a sign that it may not be long before spring comes.
Here the ONLY bush in the whole park that already had blossoms.
A few more hours or maybe days with sunshine and the daffodils are in full bloom
Here you can see how cold it was that weekend. Behind the ducks you can see that there is a layer of ice on the water.
You are longing for spring and summer and I’m waiting for autumn and winter. February is usually the most humid and unpleasant month and it is living up to its reputation, lots of rain and blanket-like humidity.
A neighbour has an enormous Liquidambar in his front garden and I’m watching it closely for red or gold leaves…
Winter is delightful here, no frosts or snow, although many places inland and in the mountains have both.
They are lovely photographs, enjoy your spring.
