Early Springtime

This year, the spring came almost a year earlier. last year, at the beginning of April, there was plenty of fresh snow on the mountains and we were still skiing like in the middle of winter. This year was so hot hot so far, that the ski season had to be closed early.

Yesterday I did a long run through the woods, up on the mountains around Brasov. The forest floor is covered in a fresh green blanket full of flowers, and the trees are turning green as well. So today I took my camera and did a short walk up to Tampa mountain above Brasov. Here is this year's springtime photo album. The sky was cloudy, so the weather was not very good for landscapes, but quite good for taking photos of plants on the forest floor!

I started the walk in our garden...

Then up the stairs on Costitei street

I wonder what plant is this...

The shells were just sitting there!

And back on the stairs on Costitei Street
