Summer in the "Neue Welt" 4.7.2013

Once more I wait for a car repair and spend the time with a mountain bike tour.

High grain - ruin Emmerberg in the background

Unusual clearness for a summer day, which often is rather hazy.

Near the road an area with lots of  schwertblättriger Alant.

Evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) near the beck

Schlossberg and ruin Emmerberg


Hohe Wand, Northeastern part

Oilseed rape in flower, a bit uncommon for this season - must have been seeded late in the year.

Schneeberg and Hohe Wand, southwestern part

This Creeping Thistle (Cirsium arvense) has many visitors.

Green-venied White (Pieris napi) - Thanks a lot for identification to Maurizio Minora from Milan, Italy!

Due to the initiative of the club Biosphere Neue Welt, in this area, called Zweiwiese, between Maiersdorf and Netting, a humid biotop was built, fed by natural ground water - excavated and regrown. SO, I do not know, which of the plants I am taking pictures here is growing natural and which has been planted.

Anyway, it is a lovely view.

A mullein, about 2,5 m high ...


... attracts many visitors.

Creeping bellflower (Campanula rapunculoides)
