Germany wakes to pink skies over its capital ...
And the prospect of - fiscally - a pinker hue to its government.
On news that - after months of uncertainty - a coalition deal is finally struck.
"We are happy. It is about time to have a new government in Germany. Therefore, a good morning..."
Happier still might be the conservative CDU's coalition partners, the Social Democrats.
Last September's federal election result left them with just 20 per cent of the vote.
This deal - reportedly - gives them the lion's portion of key cabinet posts: justice, family, environment - and finance.
"One has to say, one doesn't expect a lot. It's a grand coalition and the conflicting interests will be very big."
But it could mean a tilt left towards a pro-spending, pro-Europe agenda.
The austerity once championed by Chancellor Merkel's long-time finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble consigned to the past.
Social Democrat leader Martin Schulz in favour instead of an 'investment budget' for the euro zone.
"Germany runs a massive current account surplus and budget surplus of course so it's certainly got money to spend if it wants to. German fiscal discipline has really been the backbone of the euro and if we see the German government weaken in that respect it might be the start of a slippery slope."
Germany's economic prospects: good.
Its Chambers of Industry has just upgraded its 2018 growth forecast from 2.2. to 2.7 percent.
But recent polls show both parties slipping in the polls ...
Unable to garner a majority for a coalition if another election were held now ....
Unlike austerity, uncertainty not totally banished yet.
