Spring is still raging on. Up until now I’ve managed keeping up, greeting everything new that’s beginning to bloom. Soon I won’t be able to do that, as nature is about to explode into heyday any time now.
About two weeks ago I visited ‘Zavelstein‘ which is, among other things, famous for it’s Crocus fields. It’s a health resort at the border of the ‘Swabian Black Forest’, the kind of place you visit when you’re over a certain age, like the quiet, nature and good cake.

Again a month has passed, and again I’m left with a pile of paper and a two questions:
