Is it Spring eventually???

Sunshine!!! Just an hour walk in the fields and woods and I find treasury hidden in the grass and in the trees :)
Primroses (Primula vulgaris) are just beginning to blossom along a little stream nearby and there is also plenty of warm yellow flowers of Lesser celandines (Ranunculus ficaria) so the place will be like sprinkled with gold soon! I was so happy to also spot a few of Anemone sylvestris (wood anemone or snowdrop windflower) -they are common in the woodlands of Central and Western Europe but I didn't know they can also grow here! In Poland the anemones cover the woods with white carpets at spring time, it's so lovely to walk amongst them :)

In the gardens I can already see the daffodils flower and little sky blue squills (Scilla siberica) when spring snowflakes (Leucojum vernum) and snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) are already slowly fading...


  1. yep, finally it's getting greener if not really warmer :P

  2. These pictures are so beautiful, they make me long to come home to lovely Scotland! I have Ukrainian/Scottish friends who have just moved to Skye so maybe I should go and visit them and take in some Highland beauty! Love your pics of Strathpeffer too; I've never been but it looks lovely.
