*goodbye March

March is almost gone. Saying goodbye to a wonderful human and the beloved dog of my mother. Little miracles are happening – I saw a hoopoe sitting directly in front of me. I never saw one in real life before. Such a gorgeous bird! It was so weird, we were both just staring at each other. The first warm sun feels always so wholesome. Wishing you a wonderful start into spring!

*water and winds

On our 10 year anniversary we made a trip to the Burgenland (the easternmost state of Austria). I haven't seen that area around the Lake Neusiedl at this season before, it looked like a vast lonely desert landscape – the natural tones, so soft for the eyes!

We live quite near to the Czech border, so we finally made a little day trip to the beautiful old town of Znojmo at the end of February. Because we went there during the week, it was pleasantly quiet.
Yesterday we worked to protect our young trees from the roebucks that are roaming around in our garden at night. Let's see it if works! They have destroyed quite a bit, especially the peach trees. I am looking forward to the day where I can pick the first homegrown peach! This will be magical!

I turned 36 a few days ago. We went to a river to look for snow drops. The landscape looks still quite bizarre, especially when the sun shines and the withered meadows, tamed by the many frosts and snow blankets, appear like long forgotten deserts. But soon everything will change so quickly and one can not get enough from all the fresh greens, the flowers and spring air fragrances.
