    Sehr feine Frühlingsimpressionen zeigst du uns heute, lieber Peter. Am meisten habe ich mich noch über den weißen, wilden Krokus gefreut, den ich zum ersten Mal im Schweizer Jura auf einem Berg entdeckt habe, so schön!
    Aber die anderen Bilder will ich damit auf keinen Fall schmälern.
    Liebe Grüße

      Und die Hummeln freuen sich auch, wenn sie schon so lieb zum Schmausen eingeladen werden.

    Violets are my favorite wild flowers. Do you get the white ones too?

    These are wonderful photos and hopefully we will start to see these signs as well in MN soon or I will miss them.

      The white ones are relatively rare in our neck of the woods. Thank you for your kind words of appreciation!

    I haven’t been having much luck with flowers lately, seems I’ve lost any green that might have once inhabited my thumb, but I’ll keep trying!!

      Never give up, GP! Flowers are relatively easy to work with, not like the difficult human race. Haha!

    Peter, thank you for sharing the colors and beauty of your early Spring world. Love it! Especially since everything is white with fresh snow in Interior Alaska.

    Beautiful pictures Peter, you are truly blessed with the surroundings of your home. Most impressive was the bird photo, as these little creatures usually can’t sit still for even half a second.

      The birds visiting our yard know me quite well and are kind enough to sit still for a few seconds and pose for me.

    Such beautiful photos, Peter, to celebrate the arrival of spring. The violets are gorgeous, and I love the flecks of pollen on the bee – great shots!
