Give me some sunshine.

The weather had been crappy the whole week. Rain and grey clouds. Many a time, I would look hopefully to the skies for some salvation!! So, it did take me by surprise when today, the sun just shone through the dark clouds, sort of playing hide and seek with us!! I couldn't believe it!!! Pretty soon, the clouds vanished and there were clear blue skies. I couldn't wait for the kids to get home, cause I wanted to take them out with their bikes.
Meanwhile, I went about opening windows, placing all plants near the windows to get their dose of Vitamin D!!! God alone knows, when the sun will get out of hiding next...:) The windows once again reminded me of the cleaning needed to be done!!! They looked dirtier than ever!! I placed these tulips to soak in some sunshine too..:) I love tulips. They are available the next 5 months in Blumen shops. They bring in so much color to your home. I wish they were available the whole year through.

Anyway, once the kids got home, we had a quick lunch. By then, the sun chose to go back in hiding never to come out. Never the less, it was pretty warm which is quite unusual for this time of year. I am grateful for this unusual weather and hope that it continues to remain this way and not drop down to freezing temperatures.

The children were thrilled to get out their bikes after two whole months. Surprisingly, we were the only ones in the park. Not a soul.

During summer, not only is the park filled, you have youngsters sitting in this band stand, getting together for a chat or a puff!

Very soon, these bare branches will have new life in them. It will be Spring and we shall have a riot of colors. Till then, we patiently wait.


  1. Beautiful photos! Love the flowers! xo

  2. Very beautiful bunch! the flowers are my favs!

  3. I love how colourful and spring like the tulips are. Nothing like brightly coloured flowers to improve ones mood!

    This is kind of random, but I think it's really neat that you live in Bayern - I lived in a small village about 2 1/2 hours south of where you are on my exchange to Germany in highschool. I love how picturesque the old towns are. SO cute!

  4. Just the shot of color I needed! It's grey and awful over here aswell..although tomorrow we are supposed to have sun. Im begging for a sunday drive just so I can experiece the small amount of's soooooo long until summer!!!


I love it when you stop by to say a few words...
