Lussi - when you found the first coltsfoot it won´t last long and other early blooms will follow :nod:

Airras - you have already Dandelion with seeds and here are only the very first blossoms up :laugh:

Thank you all for your wonderful pictures :thumbs:

It is so interesting to follow development of season in different countries - also in the different states in the own country!

When I saw Riittas pictures of the herbs, I began to look forward so much to the days, when one can go out in the garden and pick fresh herbs :shake:
