Spring Today, Snow Tomorrow..
8 Mar 2013
The Netherlands, it is flat,windy,often very very wet and busy. In the city of Leiden were i live is a wonderful oasis called the Hortus Botanicus. Here the noises of normal life seem to vanish and a wonderful world of weird and wonderful plants (and animals) awaits you. They have an indoor jungle as i call it but for the moment the green house is being renovated. This week has been quite warm so the first springflowers and bumble bees are coming out of hiding. They should have waited a bit longer as snow is predicted in 2 days and the temperature which hit even 15C this week will drop to -6C. So here is a small impression of how early spring looks like in the Netherlands! No tulips yet it is to early.
