I’ve said it before, and I say it again: spring is the ugliest part of the year. It’s usually muddy, dirty, and mostly completely uninteresting. May has to a large degree fulfilled my expectations, the weather has been cold, rainy and pretty much unpleasant.
But the last few days we have had a change in weather with more sun, a bit warmer and as a result, we are now shifting into late spring/early summer. Don’t worry, there is still some snow around …
and nature looks like it’s just woken up from winter slumber.
But there are clear indications that summer is coming, the trees are starting to get green.
There are some flowers around.
And it looks more and more like summer. I expect that in a few weeks nature has gotten its green summer clothes on and the boring gray has disappeared (together with most of the mud). Unfortunately, it’s also the time for the mosquitos to show up, but you can’t have it all.
