Hallo May, habe gestern an dich gedacht, als ich über die Berge von Polen kommend in Zürich zwischengelandet bin. Von überall kommen jetzt die schönen Frühlingsbilder! Das gibt Hoffnung, dass bald eine andere, schöne Jahreszeit beginnt. Gruß Jörg

Ti ringrazio per la tua visita, Marco! Penso anche che la primavera è quasi qui! :-) Ciao! May

Jörg, danke für deinen Besuch und dass du an mich gedacht hast, freut mich natürlich. Ja, der Frühling kann nicht weit sein, selbst wenn es noch einmal schneien sollte. Gruss, May

Beautiful. I think we're all ready for Spring.

Thank you, Hanks! True, we all love Spring, though we've only had a very short period of winter.

Your image about Switzerland is right, Paul - at least partly! ;-)

As small as Switzerland is, we have snow-covered mountains all year round, but at the same time we have places with mediteranean climate. In Summer we can have a swim in our lakes and look at the snow-covered Alps. In Spring we have early blossoms on mild sunny Southern slopes and still snow on the shadowy sites. I have taken this photo on around 800m above sealevel in February. But then it's also a sign of the climate change that winters aren't what they used to be.

On this picture the summer scenery and the snow-covered mountains can be seen. That's in the region, where I live.

Many greetings, May
