Have you ever noticed how fickle the weather can be in Spring? The other day, I was really enjoying the feel of air on my gloveless hands - wow, such a treat! Then, yesterday it was cold again. The weather goes up and down, up and down! No wonder so many people get colds this time of year. A big difference in Austria as compared to the US - people always seem to wear scarfs! Although winter scarfs are still being worn, many people have now switched over to the silk scarfs (which are also very warm - my favorite skiing scarf) and the stores are full of the light weight summer scarfs. I like scarfs! They are an easy fashion update - a plain white shirt (long or short sleeved) can look blue, green, pink, purple, etc. - all depends on the color scarf you are wearing. And I really think that a scarf around your neck helps keep the spring colds away.
And the fickle Srping weather? Well, I took this photo in Germany the 1st week of April last year - we were staying in a country hotel and this was the view from the balcony when we checked in.... it was a beautiful, warm Spring day!
And this was the same view right after I finished unpacking! So, if you live in one of these environments, take care this spring and to help avoid a cold - wear a scarf. You will look oh so fashionable!
Even if the morning is sunny and warm, you never know when the weather will turn. Yup, Spring is fickle!
