Spring in Havirna

In the Krkonose mountains, Havirna is a small collection of cottages tucked between rolling hills and alpine forests. We spent one night here, celebrating spring and saying goodbye to friends the best way imaginable: excellent food, excellent beer (Wheat beer from the brewery in Harrachov) and a huge guitar spectacular deep into the night.

Below is the cottage of our friends, Zdenek and Iva, where we stayed the night. It is over 300 years old:

Night approaching, the trees still bare but for small buds of green emerging:

Some of the flowers at the cottage popping up everywhere as the snow melts and the weather warms:

Snowdrops (the first flowers to shoot up in wet patches of grass everywhere) are a sure sign of spring. My friend Iva tells me that the flowers can smell spring coming and pop up even before we feel the weather warming):
