Outlook for Thursday..

...your guess is as good as mine.

Actually, the forecast is for snow on Thursday which will be only the second snowfall for Berlin this winter.

It's been at least 10 degC warmer on average for this time of year around these parts.

The squirrels are still holding us to ransom for nuts, and show no signs of hibernating.

Spring bulbs are popping foliage and flowers, and we've got very premature hyacinths and crocus all over the lawn and in the garden, mixing it with the snowdrops which should be out at this time!

Just in case it does snow
on Thursday and kill all the plants, I went out today and grabbed some pics.

Oh, and if you're wondering about the title of this post, it's a song by an excellent 80s NZ band called DD Smash.

Lyrics here (although not entirely accurate), and upon reading the lyrics, I realise that this is a song for Louis and his Sunshine, Catherine!

At least the lyrics may help you to interpret Dave Dobbyn's kiwi accent!

Totally hip & groovy tune. I just sent a text message to Sunshine in Eire to log on and listen to this one :)

Here's hoping the weatherman sends some shine her way :)

Thank you :)

God - I haven't seen a proper spring in nearly a decade, having been in the Southern hemisphere or in the Gulf. Those (incredibly beautiful) pictures make me sick with nostalgia.

Same thing here - last year a record cold, this year record highs. Kerosene sales (it is used for room and water heating in most homes in Japan) are down over 10% this year. Plums have blossomed two to three weeks early as well.

Beautiful shots.
