Balcony Flowers #5

They’re not easy to photograph – it’s too dark there and the background is not ideal, but before they’re wilting I just had to give it a shot. Shame they won’t be around when the real spring starts!

Springflowers #14

Thanks to Google+, this is no more a mystery flower: this is Viburnum Bodnantense, also called Bodnant-Schneeball, Winter-Schneeball or Duft-Schneeball here in Germany. It’s a hybrid plant that was created in the 1930s in England at the Bodnant Garden. Big thanks to +Patty Mitchell who also discovered these in California and +Ruth Hochholdinger from Vienna who finally identified them!
