The Greens of Germany

With record highs recorded for late April, most Germans are out and about. And we were one of them.

The Greens, represented here in this post, have been nominated by me.

The green route we take to get to our forest garden does look and feel like a ski jump at times.

The lilies of the valley are winding their way around the edge of the terrace. Nature will always find its way.

The effects of Planetary Warming have not made an impact on natural greens yet, ostensibly.


July in Northern Bavaria

Another trip to the Heimat  had me take a few shots of the area of Franconia (northern Bavaria) a.k.a. as Beer Country.

Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.

Oberursel Hessentag and Blocked Roads

Oberursel is going to host Hessentag from 10 – 19 June. During this time, many major roads in Oberursel will be blocked for regular traffic.

To obtain a pass (to go to and from your home, meet your yoga teacher, chauffeur your kid to school,  go to work, etc.), you have to apply for a permit, either at the local Rathaus or online at hessentag2011 (in German).

A Good Reason to Travel

Unless you know the road you have come, you cannot know where you are going.

A Good Reason to Travel

Only he that has traveled the road knows where the holes are deep.
