Spring turns to Summer

Indeed it was a cold Spring with all the plants seemingly holding back.

But for a few days (after a tiny bit of rain too) it got Summer warm within two days. Now all flowers seem to hurry to bloom. Here a few impressions of them:

lots of daisies instead of grass
daises and another tiny flower
more tiny flowers and lots of green grass

This last photo I took this morning at the train station. The late cherries are finally in flower too, but the walnut (I think it is a walnut) tree in the back still has no leaves.And all over the fields you can see green grass (finally) and common dandelions (Taraxacum officinale).

As to the creek: although we had rain and it seemed to have filled up a bit - this morning I was so surprised to see parts (sidearms) nearly dry and other parts really low. As if it was late Summer. See if I can get photos of it and post them too. (as an update).
