Saubersdorf, Bad Fischau 6./11.4.2022

Spring is making progress, so I am out more frequently.

6.4.2022: On the fields. The Hill called Gesanger Bühel, at the transponder, with the view to Schneeberg

The cattle had been out here all around the winter.


Blackthorn is flowrishing.

Schneeberg and the trees around the fishing ponds between Urschendorf and Dörfles.

A small bit of rain has made the water at the reed to reappear, ...

 ... motivating Lucy to drink - and being bogged. 

Besides the Mori beck, the leaves of the autumn crocus are growing out now, to prepare for the flowers in autumn.

More views to Schneeberg.

Blackthorn flowers ...

 ... are gladly visited by bees ..

 ... of different breeds.

11.4.: Starting from the outskirts of Winzendorfer along the vineyards to the iris grassland.

Not every white is identical: the lighter white lower down is blackthorn, in the upper region the flowers of the mahaleb cherry (Prunus mahaleb).

Dwarf iris on the iris grassland, different colour variants of dwarf iris (Iris pumila).

Österreichische Schwarzwurzel (Scorzonera austriaca)

More blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) besides the way back.

Always keep in mind: when blackthorn is in flowers, so are the dwarf iris.
