Flowers 23.5.2006

Today it is sunny only in the morning. I am looking for a place with wild orchids that was described to me by a guy last year that I met on a grassland taking fotos of flowers like me.That laeds me to a place near Sollenau, where I did not find orchids, but lots of other beautiful flowers.

Schneeberg in the morning, with a foen cloud on its top.

Beck near Weikersdorf with Hohe Wand behind

Wild growing oilseed rape near Guenselsdorf

Wiener Neustaedter Canal near Schoenau on Triesting. Rabenwald ("raven forest") to the left.

Big Wood anemones (Anemone sylvestris) at the outskirts of Rabenwald

Bugle (Ajuga reptans)

Purpurblauer Steinsame (Buglossoides purpurocaerulea, related to gromwell)

Fallow ground with corn poppy

Big wood anemones also growing near the canal

A nearby pond resulting from clay quarry, with Schneeberg behind Hohe Wand

Not being successful searching for orchids in Rabenwald, I fomfort myself in driving to a place where I have found orchids last year: Military orchid(Orchis militaris)

and another one.


Burnt orchid (Orchis ustulata)

On another place I find white Diptam (Dictamnus albus)

Vineyards between Bad Fischau and Winzendorf, ...

 ... with pretty blossom buds on the vine.

At noon: Schneeberg is free now, but it is cloudy. Being a bit dry and windy, the flowering dark pine forest spreads pollen in big clouds into the air.
