Spring is in the air, at least in some parts of the world.

Do you have any Spring flowers yet?

We have some tulips comming up in the garden.

I bought some flower seeds for the pots and windowbox on the balcony. I will wait until next month to plant them, because we often get quite a lot of snow here in Bavaria, Germany in March.

I don't have a garden - I buy small potplants for my balcony, and just replace them when I've killed them :-) - but sakura (cherry blossoms) are starting to come out in Japan.

When they start to kick in properly the newspapers/tv news have a 'sakura frontline' to report their 'progress' from south to north.

I am going to India in May. I hope my boyfriend manages to keep the balcony flowers alive while I am gone. They were all dead when I got back from my last trip to Thailand. He blames a storm that happened while I was away. UMM! I think I will read the planting instructions again. Maybe I can put off planting them, until I get back.

Makes me wonder if nothing at all ever happens in Japan, if the newspapers and TV stations are reporting the progress of the cherry blossoms. :D

Well Pollens are in the air and so are the allergies! Cherry blossoms and warmer weather comes with a price tag !! Reply to this

Thank goodness, I dont have a pollen allergy.

I developed an allergy for one type of washing powder here in Germany and if I use it, I get such an irritating reaction. At least that brand of washing powder is something I can avoid, unlike pollen. Reply to this
