Pernitz and Puchberg 10.5.2005
Too less time for a walk or ride, however with the car you reach pretty landscape. I visit a poor grassland place near Neusiedel/Pernitz and drive further via Miesenbach to Puchberg.
Lots of new snow on Schneeberg after yesterday´s rain
If the view is as clear as today, Schneeberg is enthroned over Fischauergasse in Wiener Neustadt.
On the grassland near Neusiedel/Pernitz: early purple orchid (Orchis mascula)
View from the grassland to Neusiedel and Pernitz
Even cowslips yet on near 600 m height
Birds - eye primroses (primula farinosa) on boggy places
Lots of bitter milkwort
Some orchids have suffered under last morning´s frost
View from above Weidmannsfeld to Hohe Wand in the background - on the "backside" only wodden slopes, no "high wall"
Above Puchberg: Schneeberg
On a small boggy grassland lots of green winged orchids (Orchis morio)
The boggy grassland with view to Schneeberg
Here they are numerous indeed !
View over Puchberg to the last (southwestern) parts of Hohe Wand (Gelaend). In the background the gypsum quarry and processing of Pfenningbach
