Here in northern Germany March is more a lamb than a lion. Snowdrops and winter aconites are blooming, crocuses appear and what was grey before is now colourful and bright.
We had rain this winter, a little frost, but only a trace of snow – not enough to build a snowman or go sleigh-riding, and that´s what we did every winter when I was a child.
Now we´re waiting for spring. The blackbirds sing their sweet wistful tunes when the sun sets, it was mild and sunny today – so spring can´t be that far away.
