More Signs of Spring

No doubt about it any more: Spring is here. Found the first wood anemones today! Not in the woods but on a sunny bank by the river on my way back from the supermarket in the afternoon.

When I got up this morning the world outside my windows was all foggy and the thermometer showed +5°C . Going out at 8.45 am to take the bus to the rehab pool at the hospital, I put my winter jacket on. Going home 2½ hours later, it was getting sunnier, but I still did not really feel too hot in the winter jacket.

A few hours later, it was summer.
+20 in the shadow, nearly 30 in the sun on my balcony!

There is one drawback, though… The allergy season has started too. I felt it already when I woke up in the morning… I suspect I forgot to take my evening dose of inhalers and sprays last night. I did take them in the morning, but I still got a sneeze attack later while in the pool! (Which makes one feel very silly!)

  3. I, too, agree with Ginny. Yes the allergy season. Bad. New Zealand is very bad for allergy sufferers I have to admit. Silly? No, I don't think so. You are only silly if you feel silly. I don't think anyone else would think that of you.

  4. Thank you my friends. Yes GB but I did feel silly. ;) Not in the sense that anyone else was laughing, just kind of ridiculously helpless - all wet and too far away from handkerchiefs!
