The first really sunny and warm spring day immediately creates a wonderful bluebell scent in the forest. The evolution of the flowering of the bluebells is not the same everywhere. There is a big difference between the plateau of the Observatory, where the wood anemones are still in full bloom, and the plateau of the Valley of Tears, where the bluebells are more in bloom. On the flanks of the valleys, like every year, the flowering evolves slower. It will probably be the last weekend for the combination of wood anemones and bluebells. The flowering of the wood anemones has reached its peak. In the meantime, various spring bloomers have been added: common Solomon’s seal, Herb Paris, greater stitchwort, common dog violet, garlic mustard and wood sorrel, which has its favorite place in the shade under the conifers. Along the edges of the paths, the yellow stars of lesser celandine continue to provide color. The spike-shaped inflorescences of Lords-and-Ladies rise above the large arrow-shaped leaves. The first delicate fresh green leaves appear on the low-growing beech trees. The warm spring sun makes it wonderful to walk and enjoy the forest.
