I crave Summer, Maria or at least a wee bit of Spring. To sow seedlings, hear the birds whistle .... I'm making it a tradition, will send some Dutch seedlings in a couple of weeks to you.
I have to get ready to go to school for a parents meeting, in Bresten's class. This week, teacher Bert, has started to teach. I will introduce himself tonight. Viinciane has a male teacher too, they are oh so rare.
Enjoy your day at home with your sweetheart, I'm sure your sweet peas will contact you every now and then to let you know they are all right.
Snowy Storm outside ~ Comfy Coziness inside!
Lots of love xxxxx

I think a lot of us are thinking, singing, humming California Dreamin' these days!! Terrific capture! Love that sunlight across the water and it never looks better than from a ship!! Have a great weekend, hopefully with some warm sun -- from somewhere!!
