Well, had rained before this season, but this was the first real Spring rain. It is the kind of rain which leaves a warm feeling lingering in the air, once it is over. The rain itself is strong and heavy, but afterwards everything is calm. The sun is shining. And then there is this smell of wet grass and concrete.
Finally, after a few weeks of cold temperatures, windy days it feels like Spring is about to arrive. We already had a few very sunny and almost warm days and I had the chance to get my very first ice cream this year (however I can not believe that they want 1€ for just one ball, I still remember the times when I got two for this price. I guess time really does fly... or I'm just getting old.)
Isn't it funny how within a simple moment everything changes? Suddenly it is Spring, but just two days ago it was still Winter. It takes only a few changes of light, air and weather and it transforms your entire view on your surroundings.
From one moment to the next it is Spring.

On another note, do you remember the last time I talked about my Sunday walks with the pugs? Well, last Sunday, my mother and I made another trip with the dogs and it was so much fun! It is amazing to see how green everything suddenly is. The whole world looks more alive and colourful.
So, welcome back, Spring. You have been greatly missed.
