Green stuff

Our nature does not seaze to amaze me with its flexibility when it comes to the temperatures in spring. It has been real cold these past days, but the rain then and sun now have caused another burst in the green. Bushes and the earliest trees are pushing out leaves and flowers keep popping up everywhere.

Wood anemonies

Wood anemonies have started to pop out now too. Spring seems to be pretty late and slow this year, but the flowers are pushing out anyway. That's the way it goes here in the northern hemisphere. The plants are probably way better adjusted to the unrelenting cold than most of us people.

More flowers in the yard

It's the time of the year, when the yard changes every day. Today I noticed that our narcissi have started to bloom. There's also some blue flowers here and there. This bush at the edge of the hedge next to our driveway is in bloom too.

Birds and flowers

I absolutely love spring. When the first (and only, as far as I know) crocus opens its flower in our yard, when trees start to get their little buds, when an orchestra of birds chirp and wagtails, starlings and blakcbirds hop on our lawn, when rhubarb pushes its wrinkly sprouts through the still cold dirt, when sun feels warm and wonderful on exposed skin.

Hepaticas have popped up here and there in the forest and next to our garage door.
