It’s Spring!!!

casual style over 50

Spring finally came (and went…) to my neck of the woods. Well, for a few days, anyway. Sure, it was snowing a couple of days later, but let’s not talk about that. It’s so depressing, after all.

So, spring… You know: sunny days, warm enough to ditch the winter coat, pollen flying everywhere… Remember that?

It’s been so cold for so long this year that I was beginning to wonder if Mother Nature had forgot that we’re supposed to have four seasons. Like, maybe she thought we would just jump straight to summer one day. Or skip summer altogether… Anyway, it was spring, at least for a few days, and that’s something, right?

So, it was nice and sunny… and awfully windy. Well, it’s usually windy by the sea. But at least it wasn’t cold. Depending on your definition of cold, of course. By now I’d say temperatures in double digits (Celsius) is what passes for ‘not cold’, at least in Finland, and therefore I’m going to call it spring.

      Oh well, this is the Finnish spring: sunshine one day, sleet the next…

    The weather seems to be all over the place this year. I adore that bright coloured trench. At least that is still spring : ) bisousSuzanne

      The weather is crazy: we actually had sleet, then hail, on several days… but, it's spring, at least the sun is shining.

      Oh warm weather… the dream… but not too warm. I'm not a fan of hot weather, either.
