Spring is late

Spring is late this year and so are flowers. I wonder when I'll be able to take again pictures like the following.

Chelidonium majus, one of my favourite healing plants (but beware - it's quite poisonous!)

Did you notice the perfect pentagonal pattern on this tiny flower?

Readings: Rapids by Tim Parks

I began to read this novel last Sunday. The action takes place in the same valley I told you about in the last two postings (Skiing in the Pusteria Valley and Winter strikes again).

Winter strikes again

Heavy snowfall yesterday in Dobbiaco (Toblach), in the Pusteria Valley, near the Austrian border.

Skiing in the Pusteria Valley

In the Gailtal, Obertilliach, in the eastern part of the Pusteria Valley (Austria)

A very special dish in Lienz, covered with carob powder and grinded poppy seeds (mhm!!!)
