Head empty of flowers

Later today I went for a walk at Tremanskärr, going across the swamp and having a look at lake Kurkijärvi. It was a fine, warm spring day, and a lot of things were happening in the forest.

It seems that my head goes empty of plant names during the winter, and it takes some time in spring and summer to remember even the most common species. The flower in the photograph titled "Flower" is something I should know, but I didn't manage to identify it. Have to try again later.

Update: The flower I was wondering about is Pulmonaria obscura. I think it is in flower surprisingly early, but that may be due to the sunny spot where it is growing.

Great catch with the lizard. The mark in the wood to the left is like a petrified imprint of one of his ancestors ;)

@Cedric: I had to wait some time for him to return from hiding, but he couldn't resist the warm spot on the boards. And he placed himself in a perfect spot for taking a portrait.

@Tigger: Muchas gracias!
