It can be the small things which can make me wonder. While hiking up a trail up to a mountain, a snail in the middle of a tree trunk had my attention. A beautiful coiled shell!

The Yellow Collection
Now I can tell the truth: the hidden goal of this color posts is to check if I’m color blind or not (and you can check the same :-). After the lilac collection, here is the last one: this time the color is yellow, and includes a small trap.
Collection of Lilac Flowers
After the ‘blue‘ series, here is yet another hicking flower color collection: Lilac!
After the ‘green‘ one, here is another impression from my recent hiking tours in the Alps: this time a combination of brown, green and blue.
The one below is the Gentiana Verna (or Spring Gentian). It is rather small and widespread, found on sunny alpine meadows.
Composition of Green with Algae
Impression from one of my recent mountain hiking tours: Mountain spring water flowing slowly through grass meadows, building a symbiosis with green algae. Maybe a camera cannot reflect the number of green colors the human eye is able to see?
Happy Greening 🙂
Weissdorn/Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna)
I like the Crataegus or ‘Hawthorn’. The small white flowers of the white variant are not really spectacular alone, but together they build a beautiful ensemble:
The Hawthorn provides food and shelter for many birds. And according to legends, they are associated with fairies.
Happy Flowering 🙂
Dandelion, Snow and Mythen
The long Easter Weekend has its benefits, beside of preparing lecture material and writing up geeky technology articles :-). I love that view with meadows sprinkled with all the Dandelion, and the snow-covered mountains in the back. Back on the left the peaks of the Mythen.
Blooming Pear Tree
Spring time definitely arrived in the lower areas of Switzerland, with the snow melting away in the higher areas.
Snow Melting to Spring
Snow is melting, and Spring starts in the Alps above 1000 m too.
Cloud Mountain Tree Sunset
Sunset in the Alps, the mountain trees forming new branches with the clouds …
Happy Treeing 🙂
