Blosser Berg 7.+8.5.2005
Dull weather on both days, cool, only short sunny spells. Short (botanical) morning walks both days to Blosser Berg near Winzendorf. 8.5. even cooler, very windy, but more sunny.
Already down near the road Austrian speedwell (Veronica Austriaca) shines out of the grass
Lots of Solomons Seal (Polygonatum odoratum) flourish on outskirts of the wood
View on Blosser Berg and in direction of Wechsel and Semmering. Blooming oilseed rape fields in foreground
Blue gromwell (Buglossoides purpurocaeruleum) at outskirt of wood
The star of the day: Burnt orchid (Orchis ustulata), a few near the upper wood outskirt as well as about 20 - 30 exemplars a bit beneath.
The name comes from the inflorescence looking like burnt on top.
8.5.: "Grey" dandelion (Leontodon incanus)
View out of the forest above Wizendorf over the southern Wiener Becken in direction Bucklige Welt ...
