The sun did come out and play this weekend! Warm enough to enjoy our first lunch out on the balcony and plenty more time to watch the neighbours carefully preparing their window boxes for the flowering season. I also indulged in my first ice-cream for the season (oh guilty pregnant pleasure!) followed by a walk through Alexanderplatz and Mitte to the Pergamon to see The Tell Halaf Adventure, a fairly incredible exhibition of Aramean sculptures. Most of the sculptures were destroyed in WWII bombings only to be meticulously pieced back together over the last 15 years by a team of archeologists who, by this stage, must all have PhDs in puzzle-wizzardry.
Walking back home from the museum was really a pretty amazing sensory experience. Not sure if it was my over-active fertility hormones but it felt like the whole city was alive with Spring-fever. The air was thick with the smell of blossoms in full bloom, birds were happily chirping as the sun set and thousands of tulips were dancing on nature strips in the faint breeze. Yep, I definitely think Spring is my favourite season!
