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!

First of all the bad news. I have brought back a dreadful cold and cough, it was very cold and damp in Denmark last week. Also, my Knuphone can connect to the Internet but it eats money when I do it, so I am having to find out why I cannot get back on the pay as you go bundle I had.
The good news is that I have gone though and edited the photos from Copenhagen and Aalborg. They are nowhere as good as those of Hans and Uwe or Gudrun and Monika but they should give you an idea of how much fun I had.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - it's grey and dull but the polar bear cubs and the memories of you brighten up this day, too!

Yeo - What a pity you had to abandon your plans but, of course, getting rid of the flu is your first priority at the moment. Get well soon!

Britta-Gudrun - I can promise there will be almost non-stop cuteness in KWM these days .... :D

Hans Muskens has kindly given me permission to use his photos in KWM. Today you can admire FRIMAS AND HER CUBBIES both in white and brown versions. :D

I wish everybody a pleasant TDT!

Yeo, das ist schade mit dem verpatzten Treffen heute, wo sogar das Wetter guenstig gewesen waere. Dir vor allem gute Besserung!

Mervi, das Foto von Monika ist bezaubernd und wir werden uns vor weiteren Niedlichkeiten dieser Art kaum retten koennen.

Einen schoenen Tag auf der Spurensuche nach dem Fruehling wuensche ich allerseits!

Good morning dear all!

@ Mervi
You got a very nice photo from the little princess. I love it! ♥️♥️♥️

Nun hatte ich mir alles so schön vorgestellt. Morgen hätte ich frei gehabt. Ich wollte mich am Vormittag mit einer netten Dame treffen. Für den Nachmittag hatte ich sogar einen Besuch bei der kleinen Prinzessin geplant.
Leider will die Erkältung nicht weichen und hat sich zu einer ordentlichen Bronchitis ausgewachsen.
Eben war ich beim Arzt und jetzt bin ich bis zum nächsten Freitag krankgeschrieben. Das hätte ich schon am Montag machen sollen. 🙄
Jedenfalls bleibe ich jetzt erstmal zu Hause.

Kann Onkel Sergej mir bitte einen Tee bringen?
Dankeschön. 🍵
Ich wünsche euch allen einen schönen Donnerstag!🌹🍀🌹🍀🌹

Chris - We have no 'Kaiserwetter' but we can see many signs of Spring anyway.

Knuti-Judi - Soon you can start the gardening season! :D

I received lovely greetings from Monika aus Berlin. She has visited the Tierpark even today.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - my best greetings to you from a rainy Malmö.

Ludmila - Thank you for the report from Hannover! It looks like we have all reason to expect a tiny surprise in November/December .... :D

Chris - What good news from the river side!

Knuti-Judi - Patience, dear Judy! The snow will melt even this year! :D

Britta-Gudrun - Thank you for the Herkules and the crumbs of croissants. Yes, it looks like we had a fluffy visitor with wings .... :D When we drove to the mall today for shopping I saw some snowdrops and even the daffodils are about to bloom. They are very early this year.

Annemarie - Have a pleasant time in the CCC!

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day!

Guten Morgen am Fruehlingsanfang!

Der Fruehlingsanfang praesentiert sich so, wie wir es von ihm erwarten - mit Sonnenschein und 16 Grad. Damit rettet er das schlechte Image der bisherigen Maerzwochen.
Ein heisser Herkules mit Croissants stehen zur Begruessung auf dem Tisch.
Vielleicht mache ich heute ein paar ordnende Handgriffe in den Blumenbeeten, um den Tulpen und Narzissen das Bett bequem zu machen.

Annemarie ist heute auf dem Weg zur Bundeshauptstadt und wird Tonja und der wilden kleinen Wasserratte ihre Aufwartung machen.

Zur Diskussion um die Eisbaerhaltung in Berlin moechte ich hinzufuegen, dass man sich langfristig auf die Erneuerung eines Eisbaergehes in einem der beiden Zoos konzentrieren sollte und dafuer eventuell eine Pause in der Eisbaerhaltung einzulegen, wenn das Jungtier von Tonja sowieso den Tiergarten verlassen muss. Herr Knierim sagte vor Wochen bei der Verlegung von Wolodja nach Holland - seine Rueckkehr sei nicht ausgeschllossen - was will der Mann nun wirklich?

Ich wuensche einen erfolgreichen Hump Day!

Even GUDRUN HAS VISITED TONJA AND HER BABY GIRL and her report is now in KWM.

Ralph - Maybe big parks with only polar bears could be a solution to the problems of finding suitable homes for all bears ....

Chris - Did you visit your birdies by the river? I hope they're all doing fine!

Ludmila I am sure you are right, but in my experience if a senior bureaucrat like Knieriem says the "door is open" (Interview in Berliner Zeitung) to the idea of not keeping Polar Bears in the Zoo, unless there is a massive outcry against the idea, it will be adopted. As I have explained, sadly it does make a lot of sense, especially for improving the conditions for Polar Bears and making the Tierpark a more exciting place to visit.
