The signs of spring
At last – spring is here!
Walpurgis Eve falls on 30th April in Sweden and large bonfires are lit to bid farewell to the winter. Hands are held and voices raised in song to usher in the spring.
Flowers peek shyly through last year’s leaves or blaze brazenly with colour to welcome in the long, light days.
The Swedes break out into T shirts, shorts – and happy smiles, blossoming in the sunshine just like flowers.
Oh yes! Things are definitely hotting up around here.
