My Monday walk this week took me through a lot of mud in search of wildflowers.  There were thousands of them (wildflowers, not mud, although there was a lot of that, too) waiting for the sunshine to warm the earth a bit more before bursting briefly into bloom.  I tramped through the mud in search of anything else, when suddenly I discovered this patch of wildflowers in full bloom.  I’ll be going back as soon as possible to check on the progress of the other flowers.  Despite the lack of flowers, it was a soul-soothing two hours.

I have no idea what these flowers are and I haven’t had any luck finding them online.  If any of you know what they are (Judy?), please share!  Trying to identify by online photos isn’t easy!

There are flowers everywhere in Colmar.  Some of them are even found around doors, the perfect combination.  Right now, with winter hanging on and not much color to be found, it’s especially fun to browse through photos of summer and to remember strolling through the colorful streets of one of Europe’s most attractive cities.  I can also take pleasure in the thought that today is the last day of February and that perhaps spring is just around the corner.

Just a much-needed bit of color for a winter day.  We’ve been having a lot of grey skies but without the joy (to me) of some lovely snow to brighten things up.  And yesterday we had high winds, too.  But I know spring isn’t too far away and maybe we’ll get some more snow before then.  🙂
