The sunrise looked quite promising a couple of hours ago, but now it is just a grey cloudy sky and not so warm. I am a little later this morning as it is Tuesday, cleaning lady day, and I have a different routine. Yesterday was a day of shopping and today is a day of smooth runnings and watching as someone else does the cleaning. Although I did wipe over the windows. I like to have a clear view outside.
This afternoon in town is the second carnival procession. Actually it is the same as the first, but no room for me and my wheelchair so I will probably remain at home. No. 1 son will have a look for me. After the processions all the various orchestras get together on the steps of our cathedral and have a concert.
In the meanwhile I had a stroll around the garden yesterday and discovered that all the Spring flowers have arrived. This is my Christmas Rose, which usually arrives a little late for Christmas (helleborus niger). It is one of the first every year.
And now all the crocus are ready for the Spring show. It was a wonderful sunny afternoon and they reflected in the light.
And that is all I really have to say for the moment. I just looked out of the window and discovered that the patio is wet, yes it is raining. Looks like it will be a wet procession in town for the carnival this afternoon.
I happened to see this carnival lantern hanging in town on my last excursion, although the meaning will not be so clear to those that do not celebrate Swiss carnival. Even I have my problems understanding the logic. On Thursday everything should be back to normal again.
Have a good day, enjoy. Let us see what the afternoon holds for surprises.
