Signs of Spring in Berlin: Weekly Photo Challenge

Awakening 2. Signs of Spring in Berlin. Real time.

Yesterday’s post was of Grandson Charlie when he was brand new, just opening his eyes- from the 2015 archives. I caused a bit of confusion as he’ll celebrate his 3rd birthday in June.

Yes, it’s a Man OUTSIDE, 368 Meters High (that’s 1207 feet)

We were walking around Alexanderplatz looking for a spot to sit to sip a Radler, and my son said, “There’s a man rappelling up on the Fernsehturm” (TV tower).

You can see him in the second, third and fourth photo. Maybe he was cleaning the windows? Can’t see any equipment, though. There’s an observation deck and a restaurant inside the tower where you can get a great view when the sky is this blue.

I never would have seen him if he hadn’t pointed him out to me. Didn’t travel with a big camera this trip, so no 70-200 lens to get a clear view.

Sunday Night Sunset Square

The only requirement was your photo had to be a square. Check!

Gilly’s been posting squares all month so I’m coming into the challenge at the end here on the 25th day. But I had a circle in a square and it was Gilly who was posting in response to BeckyB of Winchester’s March challenge.

No Snow Needed

A brisk sunny March Sunday afternoon in the backyard. James was going work on converting the shed into a gardening greenhouse. The kids had fun playing together. Michael pulled the little blue sled with a delighted Charlie- back and forth, back and forth across the seeded lawn.

Maura climbed around and swung upside down on Charlie’s climbing apparatus. She tried pulling Charlie but too heavy.

Late Afternoon Walk in the Sun

We took a late afternoon walk in the sun today. Penny was excited to take a walk. Maura found a book in the Little Free Library on the corner.

Charlie wore his ski goggles. He held up his baby to show him the fully visible moon.

We cut down the alley and saw some signs of bulbs sprouting through the earth. Charlie looked back to make sure I was coming, too. I was gawking and shooting a few snaps on the phone, capturing the sun we haven’t seen in such a long time. It was chilly in the shade.

We’ve still got to get through the month of March and it’s been known to snow but I could feel a respite from winter today.
