It only takes a few days from the discoloration to the discarding of the leaves. Very often, even a slight gust of wind destroys these works of art. Jedes Jahr im Herbst bin ich auf der Suche nach Wäldern mit buntem […]

Red vanilla orchid

Red vanilla orchid

Very rarely the environment is so colorful when the nigritella bloom. This year it was an advantage that there was still snow for 3 weeks before everything started to bloom at the same time.
