Outings: A spring day on the isle of Öland.

Three weeks ago we went on an outing to southern Öland with my photo class. We tried to find a sign of spring for hours, all in vain (unless you count the fact that most of the ice had melted). Today was an entirely different story. Everywhere we went birds were chirping and the ground was covered with flowers no matter which way you looked.

I have seen countless wood anemones over the years. However, this was the first time I saw blue anemones (hepatica) in bloom other than in a garden. To make things even better, every now and then we'd stumble across a couple that were pink or purple instead of blue (like the ones in the first photo). I never even knew they existed before today.
