The first warm spring day. What a glory! I send you some photos of our first flowers….

Blue anemones – Hepatica nobilis – is one of the first signs of spring here. They only thrive in calcareous soil, and therefore thrive very well here on the east coast, but is not existing in the west.

And the last one for today – the white anemone! Usually we don´t see them until april – may, so this must be an early pearly!
