So, yes, it's finally here. Primavera, the Spring. Morning are still cold, days are just lovely and the trees are slowly starting to show tiny tiny tiny leaves. THE time of the year. So the balcony also needed some work. When even nicer day and prosecco and aperol spritz days come again, I want it to be ready, dammit. So, yes, all that is making me smile and also many many many things ahead. I'll keep you posted, don't worry! :)))




Primavera - the view 
Green is slowly, slowly crawling back here...

Primavera - waiting for Aperol... 
Waiting for aperol spritz, yes...

Primavera - the herbs 
Meet laurel, rosemary, oregano and sage. More to come. :)

Primavera - soon... 
Ahhh.... lavender.

Primavera - Panda and Co.
Panda, the bamboo, and his company. :) 


And...... me. :)

Oh, plants! :)

And oh, a cute Tomaz photo. *kiss*

Now I suddenly remembered that I haven't actually seen your new apartment. When I think of you and Igor, I still picture you in the old place. :)

We are still in some strange back-and-forth middle ground between winter and spring (Grandma Marta is living up to her reputation), but the almond trees are all in bloom now, and some of the cherry plums. I guess they are tired of waiting. LOL

Yes, plants! :) Yes, it was still the old place and I have managed to successfully erase it from my memory. :)

Yes, we are all tired of waiting. We want it NOW!

What about Basil?.. You must have fresh basil with the fresh tomatoes! :-)

Basil will appear in a couple of weeks, when temps allow it. Morning around freezing are still too cold for basil. And yes, I *love* basil. A lot of it. :)

Beautiful. We haven't had a sunny day for a while now. These pictures reminded me of that.

This whole sun thing gave me immense energy boost. Mad days at work and mad translating deadlines aside.

We shall never surrender.

I love the shots of your herbs, Panda the wistful bamboo, and most of all I love you and your deliciously wicked smile!

Happy Spring! First Spring in your new home, right?

You know that when I finally come see you in person, I'm just going to launch myself upon you; jumping up and sticking to you like a deranged (but adorable) tumbleweed.

It's early in the morning as I write this, but damn, I could use one of those spritzes!
Starting off as that kind of day....

Yayy photos of greenery! I've been puttering about in my indoor garden as well, trying to get the sprawling cactii ready for life on the sunny porch someday soon.

And I don't know what an aperol spritz is, but I'll take prosecco immediately!!

Trust me, you'd LOVE aperol spritz.

Adorable picture of you! :)

And interesting to see the area where you live. I don't know why I pictured your place being in a building in the old center for some reason. But it looks very nice!

It's pouring rain here right now - really really hard - I think we are going to need boats to cross the parking lot soon. But hopefully *real* spring will start here in a few days and this is the last little gasp of winter. It's already light so much later now, which is what I really live for.

Well... I spend a lot of time in old city center, but we decided to move a bit out, to more space and air and peace. :)

hahahahahaha I hope you will be able to get to your car without that boat. :)

And thanks! :*
