Crocus Blooms again....

I just cannot get enough of these - the time is so short you can see these - they deteriorate so quickly and are gone for a long time again...

Blossoms of the Witch Hazel - the Golden Queen

Although I have already seen blooming Hamamelis in January in my hometown Freiburg, I now discovered the most beautiful little bush of Hamamelis here in Munich now. The blossoms were huge and the backlit situation added a lot to its delicate beauty...
And it's also a very valuable healing plant - creme with hamamelis extract is used for all kinds of skin irritations and little wounds.

One Day with a Spring Message....Blooms

Doesn't this look like a promise? But there are more - much more - so check it out tomorrow!

The Feeling of Heat...

Isn't it interesting that we immediately associate a ripening corn field with heat and warm summer breezes? Even if we only see a picture, we instantly reckon to feel that warmth...

More Fluffies...

I don't know why I always get silly when I see things like these - so fluffy, so soft, making me want to fondle it...
