It has been a long winter and the last two weeks have been especially dreary with strong winds and grey skies. Therefore, imagine my delight today as the temperatures turned just a notch higher and the sun played peek a boo. A surge of hope emerged. Finally! Better weather is on its way, one day – soon – we can say goodbye to the heavy coats and biting draughts.
I have a special treat for you bearing spring’s optimistic delight. I present to you “all that I saw today” during a short walk between Amstelveen bus station and Kruiskerk. I always keep a lookout for this stretch along Keizer Karelweg because it has the prettiest of trees, and I am delighted I could squeeze in this walk to watch them in their spring splendour.
