Spring!

I’m really enjoying my first Spring in Zurich. Everything burst into bloom so quickly, I’m surprised I didn’t hear popping sounds. First there were bare branches in March, and then by the beginning of April buds began to show up as little dots of green in a sea of gray and brown.

A tree begins to bud in March.

Now I’m living in a world of green.

It's a cheerful, green-colored world.
Look how green it is by the end of April.

There is still a chance of frost until May 13, and then after that I suppose nature will really get into gear. Wow.

  1. Wow, May 13th! I had no idea the frost risk went until May 13th! I hope my plants survive while I am away and we don’t have any frosts. 😉

  2. Yikes. When are we ever escaping this Alpine cold?! I’ve had enough of the cold already. Enough!
    But oh yes, the green overload makes me happy; it’s the idea of things coming to life, and not just dead-and-still in the harshness of Winter.
