My Switzerland in April







I pedal in rythm with the music in my ears. I breath in the sweet intense fragrance from the gorgeous rapeseed fields. I look around. See a few cows. A farmer who is driving his tractor somewhere. A man mowing the lawn under the apple trees.

To ride my bike through the Swiss countryside makes me happy. Not only do I feel safe on these small curvy roads along the mountain chain of Jura, but they are also often flat and rather meditative to roads to ride. I feel closer to nature as I through my saddle can observe each and every step of spring... Every time I get out there, I spot something new. First the pink cherry tree blossoms and dandelions, some anemones and primroses. Then the pear trees in bloom followed by golden rapeseed fields and apple tree blossoms. Tulips and daffodils, crocus and snow drops in gardens. Now lilacs and soon also irises...

A barn construction goes from foundation to a building with walls and a roof in just 3 days!!! Someone's garden make the same type of progress over the weekend transforming from a garden of weeds to pretty perfect growing beds ready to welcome some vegetable seeds and plants for the season to come.

I seldom stop. I like to keep a steady tempo, but at times the beauty overwhelms me. And I just have to stop. Take it all in. Smell it. Feel it. And share it with you. Because nature is a magic place to be. Especially here in my beautiful Switzerland in April.
