🏵️ The Spring is Coming


It is hard to convey how morally exhausting the winter season is for me. Especially in recent years, when instead of white snow I am forced to see gray slush and mud all season long. Sometimes I can't even bring myself to make an entry in the hive - so sun-dependent am I.
In recent years, with the approach of hostilities I've felt the same way, that winter also brings an existential threat to my existence.
Sometimes, when I go to bed at night, I catch myself that I memorize the place where I leave my clothes, so that if the explosions blow off the roof of the house, I can quickly orient myself in the situation... Although the clothes are always hanging in the same place)))

Perhaps now it is more understandable how relieved I am with the first sunny days of spring.
There is a chance to survive outdoors in a forcemajeure situation))))

But my post is not about sadness, but about the fact that everything in our world is cyclical and we are again on the threshold of nature's awakening. The nature pamper us in every sense of the term.
It delights us with bright colors, treats us with tasty fruits, and uses waste products of our life activity for its needs.

And today, on a sunny day, the first primroses appeared in the clearing near my house.

While writing this article, I was interested to know that:

Crocuses and Saffron what is the difference? Crocuses are often called Saffron, but not all Crocuses are used to make the spice Saffron. Saffron and crocus are synonyms, coming from different languages. It's the name
of the entire genus of the plant. But there are more than a dozen species of saffron. The crocus that grows in the Carpathian Mountains and blooms in the spring is Saffron Heuffel (Crocus heuffelianus). The spice is made by using
the dried stigmas of the flowers of Saffron sow (Crocus sativus), which is specially cultivated and blooms in the fall.
Saffron Geifel is found in islands in deciduous forests in the western regions of Ukraine. It is in the mountains where numerous populations are located. The species is listed in the Red Book of Ukraine in the status of
Saffron sow is not found in the wild and cannot reproduce without human participation. Crocus sativus is cultivated for its red stigmas, which are used as a raw material in cooking and medicine.
medicine, which has a strong aromatic odor and coloring properties.


We even started a small family argument about the difference between crocuses and saffron. Now you know the answer.
The hive is surprising))

Gágea lútea is a species of perennial plants of the genus Gagea of the Liliaceae family, found in Europe and Аsia.

These flowers appeared a little earlier, but there weren’t enough of them for a full message, so I decided to wait a little to get a more colorful spring assortment.
The difference between the beginning of flowering is approximately 2-3 days.
