Just over a week ago the Alpine Garden opened for the summer. After a cold start, with snow last Saturday, the days are warming up and it seems that every day the number of flowers doubles. The beautiful blue flowers of Wulfenia carinthiaca cover a small hillock near the hut, attracting numerous bees and bumblebees. The first Lilium martagon flowers have opened and Lilium kesselringianum is not far behind. The buds on the Meconopsis × sheldonii are showing colour and will soon open.

We hope that you will visit and enjoy our garden with us.
