First flowers of the year

After recovering from the flu, I went walking around in Basel and found a nice park about 1.5 kilometers from where I live. It's been a bit rainy lately in here, but the sun is already pretty warm when it peeks from behind the clouds.

There was this sunny spot beside a tree where all these small yellow flowers were pushing up from the ground. I just had to take a closer look.

I took some other pictures as well. It was a nice afternoon.


  1. Hi Jukka, the flowers are called "Winterlinge", a name that speaks for itself ;-)


  2. This was great reading on flowers for the day.
