Despite all of the cold, rainy and miserable weather spring is definitely on the way and we are anxiously waiting for the first sunny warm day. The evidence is subtle but unmistakable. A few example are:
Alanea started sneezing again (pollen).
The Jasmine is growing like crazy.
I puked in the garden.
George (official Coors Light supplier to Dave), Birgit, Maiken, Jens and the lovely Iben (from Aarhus, Denmark) were here and brought Easter beer. See photo.
People from other countries and northern France (which is sort of another country) are showing up at Dave's cycling club.
Lots of mobile homes maneuvering into position and making large, wide convoys on the roads.
Alanea is anxious to get into the garden and her Camellias are about to bloom.
The Spar grocery store has opened for the season.
Karin make a wonderful lunch as always.
I will add to the list or just add pictures of Alanea's flowers as they bloom, chin up everyone. This may have been the coldest winter on record here and Anne told Dave that it was the coldest Easter on record in the UK but we have endured.
Alanea is working on a Coursera course and Dave is waiting for his to start.
