Spring

Anemone

The free time and the nice spring weather around Easter created some fantastic opportunities to finally focus on native vegetation again.

I got invited to the beautiful hills and forests in Luxemburg, a fantastic chance nobody should ever refuse. It became a weekend filled with rocks, trees, spring flowers and – luckily – only a very limited amount of invasive aliens.

The beech forest was full of fresh leaves in the prettiest shades of green, with colors only a real forest in springtime can provide.

The understory was a rich field of white flowers, with plenty of wood anemone and wood sorrel.

In the shaded areas, tongue ferns uncurled their leaves.

All kinds of beautiful reminders of why I chose this research area again, if I would ever hesitate! Another nice reminder can be found on the INTERACT-blog, where I explained my trip to Chile in more details. Pictures from Chile can also be found on the right of my blog, in the picture gallery.
