When Summer Comes Early

It has been a very warm "summer-like spring" in Germany this year and growth is early, often looking more like late May rather than late April.  Josianne has been hiking the fields of Lorraine and the German Saar lands, her camera in hand.  Once again she has found rare wildflowers and also a landscape filled with green, white and even gold - because there is a rape field already in bloom.
