Yellow catkins decorate the male willows. In the forest edges, the snow-white flowers of the blackthorn bushes stand out. The snowdrops are starting to wilt. Belgian gagea blooms very inconspicuously along the edges of the paths. The delicate yellow flowers are barely noticeable. The yellow star-shaped flowers of celandine are less shy. But just like the wood anemones, they are real sunbathers and as long as the sun is not out, the flowers remain closed or hang out looking at the forest floor with a bit of disappointment. Wild daffodils are now the most striking bloomers in the forest. The grass-green leaves of the wild hyacinths poke through the carpet of old brown beech leaves in large tracts of the forest. The deer are still enjoying the peace in the forest for the time being and nibbling their bellies full.
