Yes it's best not to take any chances. They are very vulnerable in their nestlife.
So it's time for Nappu to be protected again...pore creatures, the next four weeks will be very hard for her...and Nanu, and maybe for you too Olga
Thank you for pictures and videos of Paula and her friends. It's great to see that all the snow finally is gone, and that the beautiful Hepatica nobilis, or maybe the more appropriately name I found - Squirrel cups- are blooming..
( my dictionary also have the name liverleaf and blue anemone)
The 'White anemones' Anemone nemorosa
will be all open soon, and then the 'Yellow anemones' - Anemone ranunculoides
will bloom after them. I have them in one corner of the yard, just 6-8). Normally the yellow anemones do not grow her, but once upon the time the breeder of my first dog, Girju, gave me a tiny bit of the root of it.. 30 km from here these rarities can be seen more, they need soil with 'calix'-- (lime?) more than we have here, perhaps, I suppose..
The Squirrel hill is blooming for the moment, there are some little blue lakes of 'Blue anemones'!
edit: I forgot, there are here also 'red anemones' here, pink I would say. But I don't know for sure, people just say: they are red
Blue anemones, it's perhaps not a special 'species' of anemones, just a variant among the blue ones.. google: https://www.google.fi/search?q=punavuok ... 55&bih=646
