All over Alsace the flowers on the ground or in the trees are spring to life. One day there were none and the next day flowers burst fourth kissing the sky. Living in Alsace, I am surrounded by flowers everywhere. The cities have started planting flowers and will not stop for at least a month. Soon residents will put the traditional red or pink geranimums in the window boxes on their house. The flowers will grow full and spill out of the windows in a stream of color.
