More springtime flowers: Anemone hepatica

The common hepatica is a beautiful and interesting plant that would deserve an extensive description of its classification (botanists do not agree on its official name), ecology and distribution (it is rather rare and prefers calcareous, alkaline soils), or its slightly poisonous metabolites. Nevertheless, here I am only honouring this early bloomer with five photographs that were recently taken on a hike in the Randen-region, in the north of Switzerland. Anemone hepatica is one of my favourite flowers; I think because of the pale blue (sometimes slightly purple), large flowers (a colour that I like a lot).

Springtime flowers - Wood anemone

I have been a lazy blogger for some time now and still do not want to write a lengthy text, but at least I have been taking photographs. Today, I would just like to share a few compositions as seasonal greetings. The warming and lengthening days of springtime are wonderful, but unfortunately also short-lived. Often there is only one weekend when I actually have the occasion and time to photographs early bloomers such as the wood anemone (Anemone nemorosa). The photographs shown below are from this season and from last year. I hope you enjoy and wish you many lasting springtime experiences!
