Under the Erlangen Sun

Spring has hit Erlangen....well, it is on its way.

After hearing about the 80-85 degree weather back home for the past week or two we were excited to reach 60' F today. It was nice to be able walk around town in a light jacket. I was so inspired by the signs of warm weather to come that I decided to pull out my phone and document the exciting changes.

The first sign of warmer weather is the opening of all of the ice cream and gelato shops around town. Although it is a little early in the day to be open, it is packed at night.

It is also the time of year that all of the restaurants and cafe in the area set up their outdoor seating. I love walking down our street when everyone is outside dining. The smell of Italian and Franconian food being served is incredible. This also reminds me of how much fun it will be this summer when it is light until 10pm and everyone is outside.

Even though the trees are still bare, the flowers are starting to bloom and people are starting to relax in the park again.

Other signs of spring are the pretty displays in some of my favorite shops.

Check out all of the bunnies

Finally, as the weather gets warmer the market seems to grow. Fresh spring fruits and vegetables as far as the eye can see.

The snow was a lot of fun but it is so nice to feel it getting a little warmer each week. Happy Spring!
