Primavara e aici! / Spring is arrived!

I interrupt for one day my Indian episodes, of which there are still 4 to come. I spent the weekend in the country, where I am gardening my flowers. It is a village at aprox. 80 km from Timisoara, in the Mures Valley.


The road is crossing a forest for a distance of 2-3 km, right before to reach the village, and I stopped to take some photographs of the wild flowers. Crocus flowers dissapeared already and their place has been taken by wild Anemone, yellow and white. There are also violets and Vinca minor (blue flowers), which is also a medicinal herb.



And if I told you about the forest, let me show you some images from my garden also. There are a lot of daffodils varieties nowadays. Forsythia is also shining but what I liked the most is Magnolia. For the moment, only Magnolia stelata is in bloom in the village but the flowers have been a bonus. They are my gift to you, my readers.

Intrerup azi, pentru o zi, sirul episoadelor indiene (mai sunt 4), pentru a baga in seama primavara
asta mult asteptata.

Inainte de a intra in satul din valea Muresului, unde imi gradinaresc florile, soseaua trece cam 2 km printr-o padure de foioase, stejar si fag. Zapada si ploile multe si-au lasat semnele care dainuie inca in padure.
Deocamdata frunza e timida dar jos, la nivelul solului, dupa brandusele pe care "le-am scapat" anul acesta, au rasarit alte flori. Mai ales anemone salbatice, galbene si albe sau "pastite", cum li se spune pe aici, fiindca apar in preajma Pastelui.
Mai sunt insa si viorele si "foi in foi" sau Vinca minor, care e si planta medicinala si despre care imi povestea vecinul meu ca, in copilaria sa, se cara cu cosurile, la piata, la Lipova. Si aceasta creste pe suprafete compacte, formand petece de albastru pe marginea soselei.
Si fiindca vi-am povestit despre padure, hai sa va arat si cateva imagini din gradina mea, unde acum predomina soiurile de narcise, insotite de cateva zambile motate. Lalele abia incep sa se deschida acolo.
Corcodusii si Forsythia sunt in floare si ei, iar ici-colo mai sunt si niste tufe de Helleborus (spanz).
Bonusul mi l-au oferit insa magnoliile, deocamdata doar Magnolia stelata.
Acesta a fost darul meu de weekend, pentru voi.
