My impression is that all are white until they start to 'go over' after fertilization

Soldanella also on the ridge.

Previous are: 3 views from top, one of the summit and just one more Helleborus picture...I could not stop taking pictures of them!

Descent route was long steep zig-zag under the chairlift (would be worth seeking for ascent). Near the bottom the Convallaria majalis

The following day 25th May I decided to try to get higher, partly following the route of the first day. This is where I could not find paths, possibly because it was early in the season and possibly through lack of use since a road goes over the pass and in high season there is a bus. Starting with Lake Jasna again and a statue of the fabled Zatorog.

Zlatorog (nb Zl)is a famous golden horned ibex or similar of fairy stories and more importantly a brand of lager.

One of my favourite woodland plants, very common here, Fagus sylvatica.

At the foot of the mountains acres of scree and dry river bed

A memorial to Slovenian climbers..... a reminder about the dangers.

Going back into the woods, inevitably. Quite a few striped orchid leaves. Could they be common spotted?

Vinca, almost weedlike at woodland margins

Previous is Hacquetia epipactis.

Going higher and meeting the main road a Russian memorial church.

Higher still the path became a stream bed, or did it?Fallen trees, large boulders and time of day sent me back to the hotel!

May 26th, a valley walk to Italy. A railway used to run into Italy along the broad flat valley of the Sava. Now it is a smooth cycle track, with hay meadows to the side. Hay drying racks.

Previous is preserved railway station at next village up the valley. Next comes the source of the river , the Zelenci pool, fed by springs on the floor of the pool.
