Just fed up with winter...

...I want sun's warmth, flowers, spring fever!!! ;-)

Not for the first time when we felt a kind of winter depression we went to the greenhouses of the botanical garden of Wuerzburg University. 

There you find a inkling of spring with all its pleasant sides.
And some beautiful orchids and other tropical plants.

On top you see what I guess is a Cattleya hybrid. A species with hundreds of different variants and a countless variety of blossom colours.

Much more common on your window sill and better known is this Phalaenopsis hybrid - here a purple species.

No idea what type of plant I capured here - but I like it.

  1. It was really heavy winter for you. Hope Germany will have a great spring soon. Update from Istanbul: the snowdrops are started flowering. Tender buds are everywhere. The first signs of new leaves are appearing on most of the trees. And.. I was playing tennis yesterday, it was super warm here, imagine:)
    Schönen Sonntag, Uwe.
