Is Spring here already?

A Sign of Spring

Spotted these two guys, who works for the municipality, at the water and sanitation department, enjoying a cup of coffee in the winter sunshine at Åbyplan in Västerhaninge today. In my book that counts as a true sign of spring. Erik and Harry may not be as pretty as Charlotte whom I met here at the Kaffebönan cafe one year ago. But the interesting thing is that last years spring sign came ten days later, compared with this year. So after three long months of winter and snow, spring could be around the corner!

Oh, and it looks like we will have a few days of sunshine, but according to the weatherman more cold weather and snow is expected next week...

Nice portrait of the working "man." Can't believe you're going to get more snow!

Leif Hagen said...

Don't they serve "semlor" at that cafe' during this lenten season?

Don and Krise said...

Well, enjoy the sun while it lasts. Our weather here is doing some pretty strange things. Yesterday we were out in short sleeves, today there were snow flurries in some of the surrounding areas.

There may be sunshine, but it looks like there's still a lot of snow on the ground. Spring showed its colors here over the weekend, but today it's colder and windy. Soon, spring will arrive...

I start thinking that winter will be in our lands forever...
My drawing teacher is looking for the pair of nice working boots as models for still life paintings. The men at your photo have exactly what she wants. Trade:-)))?

Not sure if they serve semlor Leif, last time I had coffee here it was another owner. I will have to investigate!


Last I heard the snow is due on Friday.

Short sleeves will have to wait a while I think!

If I meet the guys again I will try to nick their boots Irina!

Great portrait, Steffe. I love that open sign over the guy's head.

Looks like a relaxing place.

No, they aren't Charlotte. I like their attitude is perfectly relaxed, almost Mediterranean. A very good portrait.

Congratulations on the first sign of spring! They look like they're enjoying their coffee... and enjoying having their picture taken!

My car AC got wild and crazy and entered COOL mode the other day. An early sign of spring.

Relaxed working men, who has clothes colors that also goes very well with the colors on the window...:-)
I like the reflections in the window, the snow etc.
(We have fog, a bit of rain, the snow is melting,- BUT more to come at the weekend here too.)
