Latest Flowers: Apricot Blossoms and HeatherMonday is a new type of half-day holiday for us in Zurich canton... Sechseläuten. Sounds a little like Guy Fawkes Night and Groundhog Day combined! They burn an effigy (like Guy Fawkes, but a snowman) and how soon the head explodes determines what kind of summer it will be (like the groundhog prediction). A snowman in April? It's true there's still plenty of snow up in the mountains. Unfortunately, the kids don't get the half-day, because they school in Zug canton. But no matter - it'll be their first day back at school after two lovely weeks off...
Our latest garden happenings: Apricot blossoms, enough tulips and daffodils to cut some and take them inside, and happy pink heather!

How beautiful those tulips and other fragrant blooms! Oh, Happy Day! Our weeping cherry, azalea, creeping phlox and tulips all agree that spring is here in Virginia. If only it would stop raining, the sun would be a welcome visitor! So glad your Geneva trip was fun! Isabel is a beauty! Babies are such a blessing! Love you so very much! Mom
