Spring is coming, I hope

Monday morning.
Monday morning.

No snow this week but a full moon in the beginning of the week. A bit windy when I made a trip to the Western Harbour on my lunch on tuesday. I passed the old wharf area where Kockums used to build boats and saw a peculiar tower that was buildt as a bomb shelter probably at the beginning of the war in 1940. I never knew of its existence until a few years back when I saw a glimpse when I passed. It is the only one in Sweden and was built by the wharf but couldn´t in any way harbour all the workers on Kockums as only 100 person could go inside. The design is german and is called ” Spitzbunker” or “Winkeltürme” after is designer Leo Winkel.  It is situated by the oldest dock in Malmö, built on landfill in 1857.

I have seen the yellow winter aconite and snow drops that heralds spring and an unknown bush is flowering with pinkish flowers.

At the end of the week we had sun but it is grey today on saturday when I publish this post.

The pictures comes from Malmö in Sweden.

More pictures on Our World Tuesday and Skywatch Friday.
