Will the Spring be Spring like this year?

Dear friends! After the non-existing Winter it's Spring time again. Let's hope that at least this season will be more 'normal' than the Winter was!

das war ein Witz von mir: Auf dem Friedhof kann man nicht einkaufen gehen, deshalb ist dort auch nicht viel Betrieb, also ist dieser Ort ziemlich vierenfrei.

Warum kann man heute nicht einkaufen gehen?
Ich wuensche dir einen guten Tag. Bei uns scheint die Sonne.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! The sunny weather has turned into grey and dull weather. Well, it doesn't matter so much now.

Ludmila - I had a good laugh at your comment of Uncle Sergej. :D

Patricia - I'm a bit envious of your breakfasts with the birds - but only a little. :D

Britta-Gudrun - I hope the cortizon will help you! - What a pity the zoos have to be closed now that there are so many sweet cubbies, puppies, calves and small birdie babies. I'm glad that so many zoos are keeping us updated via their homepages or/and FB.

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day!

Guten Morgen!

Patricia, Ludmila, der Arzt hat mir wieder Cortison verordnet, damit wird es schnell etwas besser.
Ja, es ist erstaunlich, welche Nistmengen Voegel in ihrem Schnabel tragen koennen und sie dennoch mit dieser Last fliegen koennen.

Heute scheint es wieder waermer zu werden, dann mache ich kurzen Besuch auf dem Friedhof. Ich glaube, da ist die Luft virenfrei, denn hier kann man ja nicht einkaufen gehen, demzufolge ist auch nicht viel Betrieb.

Mervi, Valeskas Zwillinge sind bezaubernd. Leider ist auch in Bremen der Einstieg zum Wasser sehr hoch, aber Lale und Lili haben die Klippen auch unbeschadet ueberstanden. Danke fuer den Link.

Yeo, die Knieheilung ist auch bei excellenter OP-Technik sehr langwierig. Vermeide bei allem Ehrgeiz die Ueberbelastung.

Dumba, deine Fotos sind fruehlingshaft erheiternd und werden noch eingehend betrachtet.

Teilt die Woche gut!

Good morning Dear All, again very sunny, but only 1°C!!!
Britta-Gudrun, just read your posting about your taxi. JEEZ, that is a lot of money. Hope you do not have to do this on a weekly basis. Is your hand feeling already a bit better?
This morning, after feeding the cats and while waiting for the coffee, I saw a blackbird in the field collecting material for the new nest. I was really impressed to see how much the bird could hold in his beak and still flying to his spot.

Uncle Sergej wanted to clean the tables with alcohol, but at the end he decided that it is more effektiv to drink vodka.
Good Night

Extremely strong believe me. I am afraid that he added lots of vodka (it seems that alcohol is helping against corona or at least protecting).
Cheers and now my bed.

Dumba - I just saw your photos from a snowy Berlin contra a very green Berlin. Amazing how quickly the scenes can change their appearance! - I was only 'normally tired' so there are no problems. :D

Ralph - I'm sure Uncle Sergej has already prepared Flockeronas for us!

Britta-Gudrun - Oh bear, your Taxifahrt de Luxe wasn't cheap. I hope it was as least pleasant and comfortable!

CUTENESS ALARM IN KWM AGAIN! VALESKA'S TWINS HAVE NAMES NOW! There's a little article with heart melting photos and even a short video!

Guten Tag am Nachmittag!

Ich hatte heute meine "Taxifahrt de Luxe" fuer 120 Euro und somit das Geld, das ich an der erkrankten Putzfee gespart habe, wieder verpulvert. Wie heisst es so schoen: wie gewonnen, so zerronnen - easy come, easy go. Nun denn, ich war froh, dass das Unternehmen, wenn auch nur noch durch den Chef persoenlich, ueberhaupt in Betrieb war.

Jetzt schaue ins KWM und gehe danach in die Kueche.
Ich wuensche einen schoenen Tag!

Dear Mervi I am pleased that the excellent Danish zoos are going to get help. The KWMarticle about Copenhagen will help to make up for my visit.
The images of Flocke and her amazing three cubs show that like Valeska she is a great mum. It is greatly to the credit of the team in Nuremberg who hand reared her. Her fur is very Russian, perhaps the Rostock legacy?
I hope UncleSergej will make us a Flockerona drink for us tonight.

MERVI - I missed the "FLOCKE plus 3 cubs-link" yesterday in the evening - and now I am in DAY-dreams! :-) . . . They are uncredibly cuuuute. Look at those little paws at the glass window: awwwwwwww....! . . . I just feel a bit pity with dear FLOCKE - it must be sooo entiring to feed and protect three little agile cubs simultaneously. And I am always concerned about a third cub, as I automatically think of the wonderful KNUT-film commented by the WIND where the third cub never got enough food and was nearly unable to follow mother and its sibblings until it had to give up completely and died. All my fingers and toes are crossed that this 'vierblaettriges Kleeblatt' will ALL FOUR survive and have a healthy and happy life!

I am also concerned today about your remark that you are 'TOO TIRED'.
hopefully this is no sign of a next reason to be in sooroows about your and VESA's general health condition!!?? . . . Sending good vibes to you and all around (YEO, BRITTA-GUDRUN, fff = anybody else in pain and/or trouble (ok, we all are in kind of trouble but some have also always their "extra Paeckchen zu tragen"!

PATRICIA ROBERTS is their any price to expect if one knows the answer to your quizz??
Hm, I guess I know it and am curious to get to know whether there is by any chance left an 'oxtail in a vase' . . ? ;-))))) : kirsenpittenkussentje !? :-)

Enjoy another sunny day after half an hour of snow yesterday.
The sunshine at our end (CCC) is simply wonderful at the moment!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! It's hard to believe it was snowing yesterday in Central Europe. Here the sunny weather continues .... We did some grocery shopping early in the morning and I was happy to see some cute rabbits in a park near us.

It really is unbelievable that Flocke is such a good mother - and fantastic that all her three cubbies have made it. It's not so usual! I could watch the video for hours. :D

I have more cuteness for you in KWM. Even though the Copenhagen Zoo is closed a lot of things are happening there. Please, check the little article of INUVIK & CO.

I wish everybody a very pleasant Tuesday!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
Jetzt ist einfach nicht der Moment die Zirkusse zu bekaempfen. Wir muessen erst aus der Krise raus kommen. Es gibt im Moment sehr viele Einrichtungen, die auf Spenden angewiesen sind. Es soll nicht noch mehr werden.
We visited Flocke as she with Hope was. She had very good fur and she was very round. I think she gets a lot of food :) She was very good mother for Hope. It is heartwarming to see her with 3 cubs.

Good morning Dear All,
The day started rather grey but now the sun is there again.
Mervi, thank you for posting the video of Flocke and her babies. It appears that she knows what to do with these little rascals. But they are sooo cute. Unbelievable that as a handraised cub, Flocke is now such a wonderful mother. And what amazed me the most is her fur, long, thick and beautiful. Actually, only the Russian polar bears do hae such fur. Most probably that her ice grotto is helping her in that regard. But she is a real beauty.

man kann es kaum glauben, dass Flocke drei Jungtiere bis jetzt so erfolgreich grossgezogen hat, denn der dauernde Kampf an der Milchbar ist nicht zu uebersehen. Flocke wirkt auch etwas erschoepft und muede.

Ludmila, du hast mich falsch verstanden und eine unglueckliche Wortwahl benutzt:
Ich wuensche mir schon lange die Beendigung der Tierdressuren in Zirkussen und hoffe natuerlich unabhaengig davon, dass man die Tiere auch jetzt noch gut versorgen kann.
Also mein Anliegen an dich: Bitte nicht immer gleich bei jeder Kritik so heftig reagieren.
Ich ware nicht in diesem Blog, wenn ich mich ueber das Elend oder die schlechte Haltung von Tieren "freuen" koennte...
