Unfortunately not a lot of plants are in flower at that time, and I think that only here they have even started growing (1500 meters ASL), I have been in one of the biggest peat bogs in Bulgaria at about 1800 ASL a few times this month, and there still aren't any plants there. I am just a few days early, since a lot of the pings already had flower stalks, and will probably flower in only a few days. All the plants I found are pale, despite of growing in full sun, perhaps because they are just coming out of dormancy, and only one had a fully formed flower, but I didn't take a picture of it. The number of Droseras, though, caught me by surprise, they are supposed to have almost disappeared from this mountain, with a few reintroduction attempts, all of them unsuccessful, though. Yet, in that location, they had formed a carpet in quite a few places, and some were quite big (about as big as the palm of my hand!), probably because it is further from the city than most of the other sphagnum bogs, and it is pretty unknown (it's a tiny ski track, and people only go there in winter), so, withouth Daniel's help, I would never have found it, for which I thank him again! Thanks!
I have plenty of pictures, but I will only show you three, cause I have a video for you to see everything ^^
Most of the pings looked like this, with flower stalks, but the flowers aren't formed..
There were red spots like this one all over the track, with a lot of D. Rotundifolia.
And here is the video, sorry for the poor quality, but it still gives you an idea of what the place is like. It's a tiny ski track, like I said.
I will visit some higher locations soon enough, in a few weeks, when the weather gets warm high up in the mountains, too. Then I will add more pictures (Hopefully they would have flowered by then)
