The Alps from July 2008
« on: January 31, 2009, 07:48:12 PM »
Having a bit more time I have looked at your photos. And I'm ashamed a little, that I didn't nothing write for a long in the forum.
But either I was out or I have planed my trips or I made photos in the garden.

Now I would like to share with you my photos from the Alps ... or have you enough of Alps?


1. Königsee
2. Saxifraga
3. ?
4. Saxifraga
5. Ranunculus glacialis
6. Flowering field on the Stelvio Pass
7. Stelvio National Park

click the pictures to enlarge them......

OK, in this case I choose something. I'm convinced, the Alps are the most magnificent mountains of Europe.

1. The field of Ranunculus - once again
2. Ortler Group
3. Stelvio
4. Lake Bianco (White) and Bernina Pass
5. Bernina
6. Bernina
7. Pulsatilla alpina ssp. apiifolia

I can admire even more those I think I would not be able to grow.

I have spent many happy hours looking at Ewelina's website.

A 'spirited' response, Arthur ... this magnificent ranunculus is one of the great horticultural challenges ... it is certainly growable, but a large flowering plant is just the stuff of dreams for many a grower.

 Super images, Ewelina. Thanks so much for posting!
Wonder how many weeks you were travelling there. You must have made
many kilometers??
