We went walking today to our favorite spot, the Blutenburg Schloss. It wasn't a long walk, about a half of a mile. The ice on the pond is melting since the days are a bit warmer and the ducks and geese are taking advantage of the small ice floes to sunbathe before entering the still chilly water.
There were plenty of Munchiner's with the same idea in mind for a sunny afternoon. It was good to get out and smell the fresh air and see mother nature preparing to shed her cloak of white.
She is already decorating the ground with new, tiny blossoms. The first sign of spring here in Germany, although winter still hasn't left for sure.
The sun was so warm, I sat on a bench near the pond, closed my eyes and drifted off to a place unknown.
New buds were on the trees, another harbinger of better weather ahead.
It is easy to daydream in the sun's warmth when you are surrounded with beauty.
To have this at your door step is comforting. It never fails to inspire us.
And apparently, it doesn't fail to inspire our neighbors either.
