There Is Still Hope

Feels like My World took the wrong turn last week. Before I could feel the smell of spring in the air, hear the birds singing with "spring spirit" and my cheeks thawed by the sun´s warm rays. In my heart I started to feel joyful and I sensed the "spring fever" bubble in my body. I had started hoping that Jack Frost and his friends finally packed their bags to leave. I was so wrong. The temperature is once again -20 degrees and it´s big compact snow piles everywhere. But yesterday when I was having a wonderful lunch at this small "old-fashioned atmosphere" cafe at Skansen in Stockholm I got this lovely feeling of spring back into my heart. The over-wintered geraniums had been given new sheer green leaves and they all just breathed new life. I can tell it was a lovely feeling giving me hope that spring is around the corner, just waiting to arrive.

Nydelige bilder. Jeg fikk vårfølelse av disse. Bildene minner meg om min gamle avdøde tantes vindu. Hun hadde mange slike blomster og blondegardiner i stuevinduene.

WOW - your photos are so beautiful contrasting the lace with the greenery. As long as you have spring in your heart, that's all that counts.
