The Weather of course keeps changing, too - but that we're used to!
Yesterday (Saturday) we had a welcome break in between storms, rain and snow - a whole day of sunshine and blue sky, a little bit of snow still left on the ground, but streets and walkways mostly bare. So I took advantage of that in the afternoon and went for a longer walk (i.e. not just round the nearest block or two). As I like walking along the river when I can, I decided to actually walk into town, even if I did not intend to go into any shops.
(The big white thing is a sculpture. Made of stone, not ice!)
There were a few people sitting outdoors at the cafés and on benches etc along the waterside - but I think not as many as on a "normal" sunny Saturday this time of year.
Passing by a florist's shop, there were lots of gorgeous tulips on display outside... And when I looked in, there was no crowd or queue. So I decided that in this case, clearly it was my duty to support the commercial life! I grabbed a bouquet, stepped in, the sales girl wrapped them up for me - and I 'blipped' my card to pay (contactless payment /Wikipedia). I think that was perhaps the first time I fully appreciated this new (-ish) technology. Not because it's quicker, but because it suddenly struck me that it's also hygienic!
Tulips from Sweden
Well, whatever happens next, at least I've got some nice tulips to look at indoors for a few days...
