Spring at last!

Spring has finally arrived in Denmark, the temperature came very near +10°C today, but unfortunately the weather was rainy and rather dull. I photographed the Eranthis hyemalis in the garden, a plant that belongs to the family Ranunculaceae, the buttercup family. The plant is small, but it has large, yellow, cup-shaped flowers. It is commonly known as Winter Aconite or Wolf's Bane. This plant grows from a tuber and has a low habit. All parts of the plant are poisonous when consumed by humans. Native to woodlands, this plant is used in gardening as a groundcover, and is valued for the fact that the bright green foliage and yellow flowers appear extremely early in the spring. (Wikipedia)
