Hope you are all well and fit! We're living through strange and hard times just now, and isolation and no contact are rules which are hard to keep, but we have to endure it all just now in the hope that things will get better.
Here we had a mild and wet winter, and then an early spring in February. The big shock came in March, which came in like a bad tempered lion, bringing us rain, cold, gales and floods. Then the weather warmed up, the trees and flowers bloomed and we thought spring had arrived. We've still got blue skies, and it's been drier, but very cold. And the last few days of March are going to be cold and wild, perhaps even with sleet and snow. So it looks like the lions will be back for the end of the month!
I made a photo-montage on a hand-painted background. The quote is from Isaiah:

And I hope that one day it will be true, for animals and for all the people in this world, that they learn to live together in peace and contentment:
And some photos from Pexels and me:

These ones look like playful pussy cats:
We have a lot of sheep here, which graze on the meadows and fields along the Rhine:
And a very short video taken last year:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
