Bad Fischau/Brunn 31.1.2017

Short morning tour to the vineyards and to the "lily meadow" near Bad Fischau/Brunn

Above the Vine yards, with the view to Weikersdorf

Broomrape (Orobanche sp.) - but which one?

White dittany (Dictamnus albus).

Feather grass (Stipa pennata) on the "lily meadow"

Violet Limodore (Limodorum abortivum)


Grape hyacinth species (Muscari tenuiflorum)

Grass Lily (Ornithogalum umbellatum)

White swallow wort (Vincetoxicum hirundinaria)

Milwort species (Polygala major)

Adriatic Lizard Orchid (Himantoglossum adriaticum) -  plants in shadow still with buds.

  ... but full in flower inmidst the grassland.

Poppies inside this field, on the way back.

Atthe end, I have a look at the dam of the aqueduct. Two days ago, I found lizard orchids here too.

Today, the place looks like this:

I also discover a car of the Vienna Water works (MA 30) and a stuff, still busy mowing. They work on behalf of the water works and don´t know about anything - only how to mow.

These were the orchids on May 29th.
