Spring has Arrived

It's beginning to look a lot like Spring, everywhere you go!
The Netherlands is 'Flower capital of the World', and it is just beginning.

The medians in the streets and the road sides are covered with crocus and daffodils right now.  It is beautiful, cheerful and reassuring that Spring is here!
The grass has been green all winter. We have had a mild winter--no snow and only a few days when we had to scrape frost from the car windshield.  But to see flowers is wonderful.  Last spring was so cold, we didn't see flowers like this until late April.  So, this year we are celebrating Spring!!

The great thing is--it isn't just on one or two streets in one or two towns or cities--it is all cities and towns, all streets and gardens.
