Three weeks ago, I wrote a post with photos taken during a hike through the winterly forest.
Much happened since than. Although we have had another snow storm on Monday morning, it really looked like spring today. Yesterday, a sunny day with mild +6°C made me take my camera and have a little walk in one of our parks. Two years ago I noticed snowdrops growing there. But, at that day they were already withered. Last year I was too early and when I came back, they were also already withered. Yesterday I was there at the right time. In German they are called Schneeglöckchen (~little snow bells). They are usually the first blooming flowers and grow despite remaining snow. Crocuses are the next ones to bloom.
The other blooming plants in my photos are crocuses and Christmas rose, a small flower blooming during snowy winter.
