Early spring in Ulm

Daily, Travel

Despite the warm temperature this winter, spring didn’t come any sooner than it did last year here in southern Germany. We are approaching the end of March and there are still  no signs of cherry blossoms… Guess I don’t get to see them this year in Ulm.

Crocuses never disappoint. They have been around for a few weeks already, so naturally I have got pictures of them under different weather conditions. Something else I just discovered this year is bear’s garlic (Bärlauch)! I first found some while looking at crocuses at Friedrichsau, they gave off a smell that’s very distinguishable. A day later I found a massive amount of them on a hill near the first Studentenwohnheim I stayed at three years ago. I picked some and packed them into separate bags. I gave one to a friend whom I had dinner with later that day. I have been cooking the rest with pasta, scrambled eggs, and Maultaschen, they are delicious and fun to collect in the field! 😉

It’s too bad that all the allergies make it hard for me to look forward to spring… but I do enjoy very much the flowers and new beginnings that it brings.
