Winter was long, with many snow, but also too much dark days, with clouded skies… I write “was”, because it is almost over. I can hear, see and smell the first signs of the awakening of Nature: bird singing to mark their territories, visiting old nest to start renovation works, snowdrops and buds coming out, moss and grasses growing…
In 2-3 weeks, we will see this amazing flower, among the firsts of Spring time in my country. This is a photo taken last year... on my knews, with my elbows as tripod ! :)
I like so much the variety of tones of this flower. This one has lilac tones, but some others are purpler.

Corydalis solida (L.) DC., 1805
Family: Fumariaceae

Corydalis solida or Bird-in-a-Bush is a wild plant blooming in early spring. It grows naturally in Central and Eastern Europe.
Corydalis grows to 10-20 cm tall. The colour of the flowers varies from pink to lilac. The plant flowers in early spring, and after blooming, the entire over ground part of the plant disappears. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil. (Wikipedia)
