114/2011 green!

114/2011 green!, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

The first tiny buds have appeared on a spiraea bush in the corner of our garden. A miracle every year! I could sit out on the patio for ages, just breathing in the rapidly advancing spring with all my senses.

It’s as though new life has been patiently waiting for the conducive enough circumstances all through winter, to suddenly get triggered into amazingly fast growth. I wish I could provide the right environment and push for my students’ learning more often! Especially this time of the year, only a month of the school year left, there are many wilted plants in the classrooms – teachers included.

    As the earth pushes into fast growth, the students do the opposite. Spring fever affects different species in different ways 🙂

    wonderful picture, wonderful writing

    in school today I noticed that there were many smiles (on faces and in eyes) of the teachers and the students. I think the longer-than-usual Easter break (almost a week!) did everyone good!

    and as someone wrote on facebook …. only 29 nine teaching days left this year 🙂

      We only had the regular 4 days off for Easter, but even that was heavenly, especially with the gorgeous weather! I am sooo waiting for summer holiday 🙂
