Bicycle Tour 25.6.2008

After heavy rain at yesterday afternoon´s big thunderstorm it is very damp today. So I have an early start at 8:30 and ride with my racing bike, first up to Frankenhof via Stollhof, then back and via Maiersdorf, Zweiersdorf, Hoeflein and Willendorf back to Winzendorf, an overall ascent of about 350 m.

The fields near Frankenhof, where I have been two months ago. No more dandelions, and cattle on the fields.

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) near the road

Near Willendorf I walk up to the forest, where I know a nice grassland, to the right of this oat field.

Austrian mullein (Verbascum chaixii subsp. austriacum) near the forest

Deciduous Shrub Cytisus (Cytisus nigricans) wächst hier in Mengen.

Everlasting Pea (Lathyrus latifolius)

Common St. John´s wort (Hypericum perforatum)

And now in full bloom: Adriatic Lizard Orchid (Himantoglossum adriaticum)
