Under Control

Winter has everything under control. This shot is three months old (and was taken in Berlin), but it could have been taken today. Yesterday I've seen one of the first daffodils, the saddest one: it was covered with snow.

It never ceases to amaze me how the near continental countries cope so admirably with winter weather, yet her in GB everything grinds to a halt after the first 30 minutes of snow!

@Curly: You should visit the Rhineland in December, when the first snowflakes are producing nothing but purest chaos. Winter's always coming as a surprise here! These folks in Berlin are much more hard-boiled. :-)

Don't fuss now! Summer is going to be as crazy this year! Somehow...winter is over! We're fighting horribly strong winds here, no way to go out! Poor flowers that came out...are doomed!

@Japanalia: They have to take it... like a flower! :-) Hang in there!

@Phil Morris: Thanks heaps, Phil!! (Taken with a 50mm lens, so it's a bit 'compressed'.)

@franz: Vielen Dank, Franz!

Great capture of this double-decker! Looks like there's some heavy breathing going on on the second level. :-) Your narrative is representative of what's happening in Chicagoland, too.

@Steven: Isn't it awful! Mild temps will come next week, but only with rain. They don't make springs like they used to.
