Au ramas in urma si amintirea noastra zilele geroase , au ramas in urma zilele cu viscol si zapezi , cat statul omului , iar natura se trezeste din nou la viata primele plante fiind plantele perene – ghioceii si floarea Pastelui – colorand in alb si galben zona rezervata din Parcul Cismigiu . aflata la intrarea principala a parcului.. Lacul Cismigiu a mai ramas cu cateva gramezi de zapada , de la patinuarul , de care s-au bucurat toata iarna cei curajosi. Iar acuma , din cauza vremii neobisnuit de calde , topirea rapida a zapezii i-a luat din nou „prin surprindere” pe aceia care au avut „casute inchiriate” si astfel am surprins in mijlocul lacului „ fara apa de la fantana arteziana ” , o cabana care seamana mult cu „Balea Lac „ … Acest lucru mi-a permis fotografierea „ in oglinga „ a casutei parasite in mijlocul apei… Lipseste doar „Hotelul de gheata” , a carui idee ar putea fi preluata si de bucuresteni.. Barcile pentru agrement asteapta curatarea si golirea lacului de vegetatia uscata si de echipamentele patinuarului …
