What a difference two weeks makes

The last couple of times we did the stretch from Breisach to Bötzingen along the south side of the Kaiserstuhl there was little in bloom other than cherry trees and forsythia.

That was impressive enough – the contrasting tones of pink and yellow – but by today, although the cherry trees have finished blossoming, the apple trees were in bloom. And there are a LOT of them in this area. And there were other blossoms – bright red, other white varieties, pink and more yellow.

On the ground the dandelions seen on previous occasions had been joined by daisies, birdseye, heartsease, celandines, milkmaids and wood anemones (those being just the ones I could identify).

And in other news, the geese by Umkirch now have goslings!
