Just now – week 11

Week 11

The Spring Fair in Arena Nord was not quite the start of spring – everything is covered in at least 20 cm of snow, but that’s good for something. The alpine plants in particular are thriving under the thick snow cover, and children and other childlike souls have been having fun on the toboggan run.

There is also lively activity at the feeders by the gardener’s house – especially many chaffinches, but also the grosbeaks have found their way to the abundant sunflower seeds that Ellen serves every morning. Karel and Flemming’s spring activities are temporarily put on hold until we can see the grass again.
