It’s Spring in Spain. It’s been Spring for quite a while, but when last week after two looong weeks of rain, the sun came out and temperatures shot up to 27^C, everyone I know suddenly was on the same theme as every year, saying that summer had arrived skipping spring, global warming was to blame, it was snowing two days ago and now it was summer.
I am always amazed at the collective memory loss that happens every year during Spring and Autumn. How is it that everyone simply forgets the Spring not only was, but is happening right now? We spent a week wearing tshirts during the day and light cotton sweaters in the evenings until yesterday, when temperatures dropped again (not that much, minimums are about 6^C). It’s normal. It’s called Spring.
By the by, Spring fruit salads are the best kind. You can still have oranges and mandarins but can also throw in the best strawberries around and the odd pear. Love them!


About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.


  1. Mi hai beccata. Anche io ho iniziato quella tiritera di lamentele 🙂


  2. Allora vediamo, qui in Hibernia e’ Primavera ma la temperatura al momento e’ di 6 gradi percepiti 2! Come la mettiamo? Commenti simili a quelli a cui ti riferisci qui li puoi ascoltare solo a proposito dell’Estate! Lo scorso anno un comico disse “Summer came on a Monday. I was sleeping and I missed it!”
    E a proposito di Spring, grazie della Zen jar! Ieri ho avuto amici a cena e molti hanno letto tutta la tua descrizione mentre la scrutavano. Great conversation piece!
