Spring has sprung!

On my walks during the past few days I’ve seen all kinds of spring flowers and buds on all the trees and bushes. During the weekend we had temperatures up to 20°C (68°F) for the first time.

The woods are full of bear’s leek (wild garlic, Bärlauch):

Veronica / Ehrenpreis:

Corydalis / Hohler Lerchensporn:

Lesser celandine / Scharbockskraut:

Cowslip / Schlüsselblume:

??? / Springkraut:

Dead-nettles / Taubnesseln:

Viola / Veilchen:

Chickweed / Vogel-Sternmiere:

(BTW, I found out that I barely know any names for German/European wildflowers in English. I had to look up all the translations.)
