Dear all,

It is great to see, how your trees are turning green.
In the Czech Republic, the spring changes in nature are incredibly fast. To learn more about these changes, read the news from Czech phenologist Lenka Hajkova:
 
Spring has already come!
 
A marked increase in the air temperature has woken up nature and the vegetation is changing literally before our eyes. Black elders, birches, hornbeams, hazelnuts, alders and willows begin to foliage. Forsythia bloom around the whole country, their yellow flowers light the landscape up (Figure 1). In many places you can see white flowers of anemones, they are blooming in unprecedented quantities this year.
Unfortunately, other important pollen allergens, such as hornbeam (Figure 2) or birch, have been already blooming. 
At the same time, the fruit trees have already awakened, in the lowlands, you can see the beautiful pinkish flowers of apricots. And careful observer can see remarkably violet female flowers on the larch in these days - it is usually visible during a very short period (Figure 3).
Watch and record all changes carefully - the landscape is changing in front of our eyes.  It's a small miracle!
