Happy Easter! On Easter Monday the temperature was over 25 degrees at ten o’clock, and Easter Sunday was nearly as warm. People clearly had a hankering for spring (a ‘vÃ¥rsugen’) and the parks were full of people all weekend long. I was working on a course section I start teaching this coming week, but still got the chance to get out and enjoy the fresh (warm!) air everyday. Viva friluften!
On Easter Sunday Divya, Shyam and I rode bikes to Hemlingby and had a cookout. We roasted veggie dogs and bananas over a fire and enjoyed this magical window where the weather is FANTASTIC but the bugs aren’t awake yet.
We also went for a walk on some of the trails in the park. We avoided my usual ski loop and went on some of the paths I haven’t seen for a while. On the way we visited with some of the animals that live in the park.
The trees are leafing out almost before our eyes and the blÃ¥sippor and vitsippor are popping up all over. Walking at Hemlingby I was reminded of Elizabeth’s visit this time last year – the warm weather came even earlier this year.
