The Coming of Spring

Finally spring has arrived here in Sydslesvig. Over the last weeks I've take an a few pictures to illustrate this.

A butterfly sucks nectar from one of the many flowers in bloom on our Mirabelle tree.

Same Mirabelle tree as above, seen from outside our kitchen window. Behind the trees our neighbours are flying the Danish flag. Further in the back is the Danish school and Danish kindergarten, so this truly is a bit of a Danish ghetto in Northern Germany. Please ignore the hideous grain silo.

This picture was taken about a week prior to the above picture, at a time when the trees were yet to come into leaf, but the forest floor was already filled with white anemone flowers.
