This morning we woke up to the first signs of a frost. No snow yet, but I daresay it’s coming. The Christmas markets are open, the time is ripe…
Try though I might, I couldn’t convince BV to snatch this guy off the wall and run (he’s much much faster than me), so that he could join our old men at home. Oh well, I guess the restaurants need decor, too.
Though it meant a bit more detouring than usual, I do miss these shiny Madonnas that briefly adorned the square in front of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg. Bring back the golden girls!
I feel fairly lazy today looking at this throw back to this day two years ago. Nine hours up and down the highest peak in Norway is slightly more intense than a few flights of U-Bahn stairs in between here and the Biergarten, which is as far as I got today. Oh well, a girl’s gotta get her Bavarian breakfast when she can.
Greetings from the fiery midst of Europe! In case you haven’t heard, we’re having a fairly major heatwave and this week has been a whole lot of sweating in various locations, and/or hiding inside the house with windows and shutters closed until the safety of nightfall. While I don’t doubt that this fjord is still far too cooooooold for a swim, it sure would’ve been nice to have the option this week.
Just like these chairs, we are all biding our time just waiting for the next day of ice cream weather.
Greetings from the middle of the most glorious long Easter weekend I can imagine. Though it’s been about 24 degrees Celsius and sunny, I think this is about the only kind of flower I haven’t seen sprout up. Give it a day or two though…
Though this picture was from an Easter weekend in the Franconian Switzerland and this weekend isn’t quite Easter yet, it’s looking quite similar out there. Sadly though, no deer this time.
Sure, we can still get snow at the end of February. But we can also have flowers poking up in the garden, and that one morning when the forest has turned from slightly brown to light green seemingly overnight.
I could have taken this picture today, as I was in the exact same place, doing the exact same thing. The only difference would be that the tree that stood in this corner of the barn today was a short-needled pine, and only had lights on it… no stars. And we found our own tree much faster today!
