Spring is coming to Lithuania!

The weather in Lithuania is really unpredictable! Yesterday it was raining like hell. The snow started to melt and it was impossible to keep feet dry walking outside.
And this morning when I woke up and opened curtains, I saw sun shining! Unbelievable! Today I heard the word “spring” mentioned at least 10 times. Yes… It smells like spring, it feels like spring…
The day was so beautiful that I went for a walk. It was not very pleasant outside: ice on pavements, cold wind blowing... But the sense of spring coming was there… People on the streets seemed happier than usually and I even heard birds singing.
But I’m trying not to get too excited, because it is really too early for spring to come to Lithuania. Real spring usually comes in the middle of March, so I will probably see some snow and cold this winter again…
I made some photos today.
This is my street. Boring district in the outskirts of Vilnius. The good thing about living there is that the forest is just a few minutes away from home, you can see it in the picture:

It was so nice to see some green grass:

Dirty snow melting:

No job for lonely Bobcat:

Slippery pavements:
