Springtime in Munich

Grungy city snow is still clinging to our sidewalks in Munich, but my spirits were lifted recently at my neighborhood florist shop where the window display was bursting with springtime bulbs and buds.

A few shiny butterflies added sparkle and color.

I'm so ready for spring now, aren't you?

Give me flowers, blue sky, warm breezes, fresh garden vegetables, and lazy afternoon picnics; enough of bulky coats, sweaters, hats, gloves, boots, stuffy noses, and cold hands. Springtime, we welcome you!

p.s. - Remember these picnic days here and here! Dreamy...
