Postcards from Slovenia #51: Slavnik in bloom!

When we climbed Slavnik at Easter, most of the flowers were not yet ready to bloom, as it was still rather cold at the summit. I knew we would have to return at the height of spring, when the hills would be alive in floral colour. We made the climb today, and were not disappointed! I saw and photographed so many flowers, I wanted to share the best images I have with you. I did not recognise all of the flowers, but have done my best to identify them using my iNaturalist app. Perhaps any botanically-minded people reading this might be able to help with the identification. I would be most grateful. Enjoy the flowers…
