the last (!) batch of spring photos from april is online.
i can’t believe it took me until june to finish…
the story behind this session: i had been looking to find “innsbruck’s pasqueflower” (pulsatilla oenipontana; german name: innsbrucker küchenschelle). it’s an endemic species of pulsatilla, which only grows on some hills in arzl, thaur (our neighbour villages) and rum, and it’s VERY endangered.
the problem is, that i was searching for it where everybody else thought it would be.
talking to an elderly farmer (that i accidentally met), i learned that the location was about 15 minutes from there :grin:
unfortunately it was late april already, so all i expected were seed heads. i only found a single one!
but now i know where to look, and next year i’ll be there in time for bloom!
