Spring nature in Lorraine, France

This long weekend we have been enjoying the colours and beauty of spring nature in and around Filstroff, a cozy&tiny village in Lorraine, northeast of France...just some 5 km from the German and and a bit more (22km) from Luxembourg.
Next to the fresh and recharging green&yellow colours of the fields of rape seeds and dandelions, I have also encountered a baby horse (born just 15 days ago) and 4 very playful 1,5/2-months old baby foxes...The last ones rolled down to me on a small hill at the edge of a forest and looked at me with eyes saying "would you like to play with us"?

Did you see the two baby foxes in the pic below (check the left and right corner)...

Yep, spring, sunshine and colours are wonderful and make us all very happy!:-)))

Hi, Jana! What a beautiful and soothing landscape! Anyone would be able to get refreshed and recharged there. I like all your photos, especially the first one and the third. I enjoyed the colorful carpet of tulips, too. Cheers to the tulips and the Tulipland!

Thanks for your kind and warm words. My mother left hospital yesterday... a sigh of relief.

Wow, so much land as far as the eye can see. The horses must enjoy their time roaming around. I like your ladybug picture too.

Stunning photos. Spring is such a wonderful season and brings with it a sense of renewal as tulips, daffodil, hyacinth pop through the ground and the grass turns that lovely shade of green. My favorite time of the year!
