Recently, Globe Trottin Granny and hubby got to combine a trip to visit our son and granddaughter with a little sightseeing. Unfortunately for us, the cherry blossoms had not bloomed yet, but fortunately the crowd was minimal. It was a sunny Sunday afternoon, with a mild temperature, perfect for a walking tour.

These beautiful flowering plum trees have been blooming in Kennesaw, Georgia for about a week. I took a picture of them today, because from experience, I know that tomorrow they will look like brown mush. The predicted low tonight is 27F. WHAT! Wonderful signs of Spring, and the coldest we have had all winter all at the same time. At least it has been very sunny. Yes, you got it Georgians, no snow in sight.
Here are a few more Spring beauties. The Daffodil blooms might be affected, but the ones that haven’t bloomed yet will have no problem.
Here are some blooms that look like roses, but are Camellias. They are winter flowers, and bloom in January, February, and March. These blooms will not be troubled at all. They are nicknamed the Southern Rose. Can you see why?
Are there any signs of Spring where you live, or are traveling?
Have you always wanted to visit the smallest country in the world, the Vatican? Yes, Vatican City is a separate country within the city of Rome, Italy. With the recent resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, and the subsequent search and confirmation of a new Pope coming up, visiting the Vatican, and witnessing history in the making, now would be a wonderful time to visit.

On this day of Valentine love, here are a few sweet things from my travels.
First, here are some sweet treats from Gränna, Sweden. The home of the Polkagris. What Valentine wouldn’t like a sweet treat in peppermint, or any of the other many flavors.
The International Market Festival in Liköping brought lots of fudge from Britian.
I enjoyed seeing the flower market in Copenhagen.
Bakery windows like this one in Stockholm are all over Europe.
Coletta Candy in Gamla Linköping displays some of their chocolate molds.
Who wouldn’t be thrilled with getting a tree with Amber jewel leaves?
Have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
