That's life, spatz, all of us know, that not all animals can live in their natural habitats. :nod:

Near some ponds, also very sunny places

Willow catkins, with a lot of pollen - and a bee :)

My first Dandelion flower this year - a lot of ants were crawling on the flower, they behaved like crazy

You´re welcome, Rielite :wave:

Though we had no hard winter here in my area, it is such a nice experience to get the colors back :shake:

I hope you will soon be able to enjoy the return of them, too!

Our lawns here are also awash with Violets -- I have them in three colours.

Oh there is a little ant on the almost white sweet violets

Alice, it must look lovely with the violets in different colors. Ants seem to be greedy for flowers´ nectar now.

Macdoum, I will see whether neighbours have oblique views on me, when I meet them next time :rotf:
Dogwood here is in full bloom now, bees are humming busy around it.

Airras, when I see lovely lambs, like on Bea's photos, I'm thinking seriously about becoming a vegetarian.. :rolleyes:

Bea, Riitta, Airras, spatz and Alice - your photos makes me speechless, they are so beautiful.
I see that spring has come much further at your place than here with me.

On Wedensday I saw my first coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) on our evening walk. Like little suns in the ditch edge..

Today's sunrise..

Like Bea's parents cat, my cat like to climb trees too. She also like spring, so much more space to explore:)
Image
As you see, not so many flowers and green landscape here yet, but some birds have finally arrived, like blackbirds, chaffinches, bramblings and eurasian siskins. And I have heard the wood pigeon. So I'm very optimstic :thumbs:
