There are now
days left until I move home to the States.
One thing that I will desperately miss about living here in Germany is the spring… even more the suddenness of it here.
I’ve lived all my life (before Germany) in the Arizona desert and I will return once more to the desert when I leave here.
I’ll miss the beauty of the changing seasons.
The desert has spring, sure, but not like this! I’ll miss it…
What do I mean by the suddenness?
Check these out! This picture was taken on Friday of my favorite big read tree in my yard… it’s just beginning to bud.
This one was also taken on Friday. The Magnolia tree in front of my cozy Germany cottage.
On Sunday morning I took Ryan out front to show him how much the trees were already changing. He’s never seen a spring here and I wanted him to really see it this one last time…
I was in shock when I looked at my trees!
How does this happen in just a few days!?
We explored our little front yard to see what else had changed in the few days I hadn’t been paying attention…
Everywhere we looked something was blooming…
Even in the cracks of the sidewalk…
We even found that the first Grape Hyacinths are already up and blooming!
Aren’t they beautiful? I think they will always hold a special place in my heart… Just like the Daffodils…
As in every part of life there is a balancing force… Namely something I WON’T miss!
In this case it’s the plethora of bugs!
I can certainly do without these guys!
