Mitterberg 29.4.2007

Short walk with the family on Mitterberg near Winzendorf.

View from the place named "Steinernes Bankerl" ("little stone bank") out of the Prosset gorge and over to Winzendorf

Cypress Spurge (Euphorbia cyparissias)

Blick zur Ruine Emmerberg

The kids are plucking lilies of the valley (Convallaria majalis), while their father lies down to the thorny ground ...

On the desent from Mitterberg a few small clearings ...

 ... with grey dandelion (Leontodon incanus)

Blosser Berg: after 5 weeks without rain it is so dry here, that most plants are developed wimpily. Only one exemplar of Burnt orchids (Orchis ustulata ssp. ustulata) as compared to dozens last year.
