Autumn crocus

Autumn crocus

The flowering of the „autumn crocus / Colchicum autumnale“ announces the approaching autumn. Due to their color, the meadows give again a nearly spring-like impression. Once again there is the chance for me to play with delicate tones and soft focus before the intense colors of autumn come. Die Blüte der „Herbstzeitlose / Colchicum autumnale“ […]

 The „autumn ladies tresses (Spiranthes spiralis)“ is the last of the orchids that occur here in the year. Very easy to recognize on the spiral stairs-like arrangement of blossoms. But due to their size and tenderness, it is not easy to find. Die „Herbst-Drehähre (Spiranthes spiralis)“ ist die Letzte im Jahr der bei uns vorkommenden Orchideen. Sehr leicht zu […]
