Spring is taking a great leap forward now.

A most exciting time of the year has arrived.
So much to see, to enjoy, to identify again:

Muscari neglectum.

Order: Asparagales
Family: Asparagaceae
Subfamily: Scilloideae
Genus: Muscari
Species: Muscari neglectum

Synonyme:
Muscari racemosum var. neglectum (Guss. ex Ten.)

a small species of grape hyacinthes,
with flower stems measurung just about 10cm,

growing in abundance, and standing in full blossom now in the dry meadows of the southern parts of the Vienna Woods above the vinyards near Vienna, turning parts of those meadows deep blue.

Still trying to identify that little pink flower in front at the bottom: probably some species of Geranium (stork's bill).

The location:
Gießhübler Heide, dry grassland on lime stone to the South of Vienna, at an elevation of 550m above sea level. It may be viewed in the workshop.

Cool and windy day, grey sky with clouds of rain passing by, and a few sunny moments in beween. Aprilwetter - as we are saying here.

The camera:
Leica V-LUX (Type 114), 5472x3648 pixels, sRGB, 1/250sec., f/8.0, ISO-125, zoom at wideangle 9 mm (equivalent 25mm).

Postwork: Adobe Photoshop PS4, cropped at both sides, downsized to 800 pixels width.

Thank you for visiting.
Hope you enjoy.

Wishing you good spirits and good health.

Image uncropped (and resharpened after downsize to TN's 800 pixes maximum width). Having to downsize an image of 3:2 ratio to just 800 pixels width will often keep very limited details only. An increase of TN's limits to 1200 pixels width - for category landscape, at least - is on my list of wishes.
