Heralds of spring in Berlin.

It is March, and spring is definitely on its way in here in Berlin. The days are getting longer, the weather is warming, the ground is melting, and everywhere flowers are springing up.

Several weeks ago, I could not resist these hyacinths at the Saturday market; they brightened up our kitchen table for nearly two weeks.

And last week, flowers began to appear out-of-doors.

It gets light around seven now and doesn’t get dark until about six, which means that on some days there’s still a bit of sun left when we get home. I have a feeling it’s going to be a lovely spring.
