I'm Barbara in Germany (Mainz), and I'm interested in weather already for decades.

Three times a week - Tuesday, Friday and Saturday morning - places at the northern and eastern side of Mainz Cathedral are reservated for farmer's market (only in December the scenery will change as the farmers have to give way for Christmas market, moreover on Carnival and other big festivals in the town). Today has been a spring day with an already summerlike touch - at least in the sun. You can see the varied clothings of the people from thick cardigans (in the shadow) to bare arms (in the sun). The colourful market offers vegetables and fruits, flowers, cheese and wine, as you can see in my pictures below. The farmer selling eggs (and giving advices for a healthy living from his own experience) is always accompanied by cock "Moritz" who is very alive and a celebrity of the market. Moreover you will find fresh grindet coffee, meat, sausages, fresh bread and more exotic foods from other countries. In one spot people use to gather to enjoy an early wine; a lot apparently arrive with their posh bikes. Disadvantage of this unusual warm and sunny March is the drought: Pantsies already look a bit exhausted while some doves are looking for food in the beds ...
Summertime will start this night (March 29/30) in Germany, so we're losing one hour of our sleep.
