Spring in Geneva

Posts on our wonderful pre-Easter vacation to Italy will appear shortly but before we finish sorting through the photos we would like to delight our readers with some photos from our long walk around Geneva today.

While in Italy, spring apparently arrived in its fullest. All the trees along the river we look on to have come into leaf and are sporting the finest pale green leaves.

To particularly Lisbeth's great joy we passed a blooming magnolia tree and that's enough proof to actually pack away the winter clothes, right?

But it is a little surreal to walk around in a park where people are dressed down to bikinis and enjoying the 23 degrees celsius while looking on snow caps on the surrounding mountains.
