The April whims don’t make it easy for the Wood anemones with alternating rain and sun. They take full advantage of the sunny moments to point their white petals towards the sun and let them warm up to attract pollinators. Where Wood anemones and Bluebells grow together, they provide a white-purple sea of flowers in the forest. On the flanks of the valleys where only Bluebells grow, flowering lags somewhat behind. For the time being, only their narrow green leaves reveal that a blue-purple sea of flowers will probably also give the forest a fairytale atmosphere in the course of next week. The first fresh green Beech leaves appear in the forest between the bare trunks. Many Bluebells have yet to bloom. The higher temperatures next week will certainly help and the forest will colour a deeper blue-purple every day.
