Spring time

Last week I spotted first two swallows flying near my home, and on Saturday I saw first stork, also very near where I live. So, two more messengers of spring are yet to be found - a cuckoo and a swift. Swifts don't live in Ljubljana, which is very uncommon.

Yesterday I visited my brother, he celebrated birthday few days ago. We also went for a walk, all the way to the meadow where I used to dream my dreams when I was in my teens. I have always liked open spaces.My brother cooked breakfast and lunch for us, and we chatted whole afternoon. A break for me. :)

On Saturday evening I joined a group of volunteers who were transferring the frogs from one side of the road to another. Another good job is done. I had lots of fun. There were only two kinds of frogs to be found - the common toad (Bufo bufo) and the common frog (Rana temporaria). Those two on a photo are from a ditch near my home. I enjoy in spring - every day there is something new outside.

Karma for today: Notice the world outside your window.

Gorgeous frog, Pina - they're lovely creatures.

I also like the seed sprouting. I've never seen a photograph of one like that before.

Frogs are rather funny creatures. I am a bit sorry I haven't taken any photos the other day. Some frogs thought they could compete against the cars! :)

That sprout would probably once become a tree if it wasn't growing on a pasture. Life is short, sometimes... :/
