Viburnum

Still have to search for this one, it looked very fragile
Edit: now I think I know it - it is Pulsatilla vulgaris, but not in phase of colored bloom, it is seed-phase!

Short before opening blossomes - Galium odoratum ... in German "Waldmeister"

Bea and Airras, beautiful pictures. The leaves on the Bird Cherry/ Hackberry (Prunus padus) is out here, but the birches, mapels and other trees are still naked. The lawns are starting to get green though.

We had a nice trip in the forest yesterday..

I might happen, that we get a thunderstorm later in the afternoon or evening.

Farmer mowed the first grass for his cows. It is not grass like it grows on "normal" meadows, it is one that grows very fast in spring. After farmer mowed it all, he will plow up this field and probably saw maize.
