Spring in Moldova

Spring is a beautiful time in Moldova. For a few weeks now the trees have been coming alive with beautiful flowers and blossoms. Now they are fully clothed in their beautiful green leaves and flourishing. It is amazing how green everything is. It is a special shade of green that truly heralds the arrival of Spring.

The countryside is beautiful and colorful and resplendent with all the fields overgrown with flowers of every shade and type, meadows, sheep with their new lambs, goats with their new kids, cows with their new calves, horses with their new foals, hens with their new chicks, duck with their new ducklings, geese with their new nurselings . There is life everywhere you look in Moldova. People are outdoors more and everyone is happy and enjoying Spring and the promise of the warmth of Summer. Moldova is transformed and winter is a distant memory with the arrival of all the new life.

I love to go on walks and see all the trees beginning to get their fruit. Fresh fruit and vegetables will abound now. Something awesome to look forward to. Everyday the trees hold a new surprise that was not there the day before. I already had fresh strawberries from the garden and look forward to cherries. Moldova has the best cherries!!

The new group of trainee volunteers also arrive next month. We are really looking forward to their arrival since we will no longer be the new kids in town!! Summer brings all kinds of things to look forward to and this is one of them. June will also be a year that I arrived in Moldova. Wow, time does fly. It's been a year of ups and downs and I am happy to report that with the arrival of Spring, I have also had a renewal. I look forward to the rest of my time here in Moldova. I really do.
