Dear friends! It's time to prepare ourselves for the Spring season. Maybe some snow flakes will still fall but soon Mother Nature will be painting the grass and the trees green and making the flowers bloom. Welcome Spring with birds, bees and butterflies!

We had a cool and sunny day. The Spring arrived suddenly with all power. Many trees have the green leaves and the flowers bloom.
We are vers glad about the Summer time. We will have more time with light in the evening.

Britta-Gudrun - What a pity the daffodils have no calender! :D :D :D

Dave - I had hoped the EU would have decided to drop the Summer time - or Winter time. It wouldn't matter for me. I just hate the juggling with one hour.

Knuti-Judi - The snow WILL melt! I give you my word! :D

Chris - Many flowers are lifting their heads and we can already see some trees and bushes have a greenish touch - if we look very carefully.

Heute wechseln sich Sonne und Wolken.
Viele Blumen erfreuen unser Herz und
die Schlehen blühen so schön: sie
verbreiten einen betörenden Duft. :)

Good Morning.

It is 0C and grey here in Waterloo, but the temperatures should get close to !0C and sunny later this afternoon. I think I'll get out for an early walk this morning and then the tire rotation on my car after that.

This year the time Springing forward didn't affect me as it usually does. It often takes me a few days to get used to the lost hour.

Have a peaceful Sunday.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - the sun is shining but it's quite chilly today. I think I focus on skiing today - on the couch as usual. :D

Ludmila - I'm sure your garden will look lovely when all the flowers and fruit trees will bloom.

Britta-Gudrun - We call the daffodils 'Easter lilies' but they are very early. What a pity they will be 'gone' before the Easter which is quite late this year.

I must announce a cuteness warning again! In KWM you can admire GERDA AND HER ADORABLE TWINS. The greatest love of all ....

I wish everybody a most pleasant Sunday!

Guten Morgen!

Mervi, hoffentlich ist bei euch das Wetter heute auch etwas besser,
damit du den letzten Wintersporttag geniessen kannst.
Ab morgen soll es auch hier wieder kuehler werden und regnen,
aber das ist nach den schoenen, warmen letzten Fruehlingstagen gut zu ertragen.
Osterglocken, Hyazinthen Narzissen schmuecken meinen Garten.

Liebe Grüße besonders nach Berlin, wo der Andrang im Tierpark
recht gross sein soll.

Ich wuensche einen erholsamen Sonntag und viel Spass beim Sport!

We had a grey day. I worked in the garden, I removed the moos and then dunged the lawn. In the afternoon we got a short rain. I hope it was enough for the dung.
We have many flowers in the garden.

Britta-Gudrun - Tomorrow is the last big Winter sporting day .... I guess I'll have some withdrawal symptoms after that. :D - Django sure is a gentlecat! :D

Knuti-Judi - New snow makes the old snow melt faster!!

Dave - I hope the weather will soon allow you to take the first motorbike ride. Old Man Winter is a stubborn chap that doesn't give up easily but the Spring will win in the end. :D

Chris - It looks like you've had a fantastic day outdoor!

The cubs in the Zoo Sauvage have names now! Please, check KWM!

Guten Abend,
ich war heute sehr fleissig und bin jetzt totmuede.

Mervi, Django geniesst und schweigt, er ist ein Kavalier! Seit gestern fehlt ihm
ein Eckzahn unten im Gebiss. Ich hoffe, nicht von einem Kampf...

Yeo, geht es dir etwas besser?

Knuti-Judi, Fruehling laesst sein blaues Band wieder flattern durch die Luefte - auch bei dir, nur vielleicht ein bisschen spaeter.

Ich wuensche ein sonniges Wochenende!

Good Morning.

It is -6C and sunny today. Yesterday it was the same temperature with high winds and it even tried to snow. More Spring-like weather is supposed to show up starting tomorrow. I think Old Man Winter has at least one more trick up his sleeve before we see the end of winter. Last Sunday I saw my first robin and their are many more around since then. A true sign of the season change.

I have finished the usual chores and now I am off to take care of some car business. An oil change and either today or tomorrow I'll rotate the tires. My car has 308,000 km on it and I try to do as much of the work as I can before it gets replaced. Hondas seem to last forever, except in this climate rust is the killer.

It will be time to get the motorcycle out in another month or so. I usually wait until we have had some good Spring showers to clear the sand and salt off the roads before I get it out of storage.

Later this afternoon is beer time with friends and then BBQ steak. I may try to sneak a visit to the farmers' market.

Have a nice Saturday.

Hallo zur Mittagszeit!

Schnell einen kurzen Gruss, weil ich noch in Action bin, denn das
Wetter ist toll und das muss ich ausnutzen.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - It's a grey day here but I took a training walk and to my great surprise there was almost no wind! That's very unusual here!

Teddybärenmutti - I wish TBV best of luck! Wearing a 'gala suit' isn't everybodys cup of tea. :D I hope Uncle Sergej has prepared a really strong and powerful drink for TBV. :D

Britta-Gudrun - Has Django showed to tell you about his latest adventures? :D

In KWM you can see Ralph's first report from Copenhagen! Enjoy!

I wish everybody a very pleasant Saturday! Now I'm off to see the last ski jumping and skiing competitions this season.
