Though Marry did venture onto the balcony briefly today, the pouring rain had her begging to come back in before too long. And the forecast for next week calls for snow… uhoh.
I’m happy to report that our yard is full of snowdrops and not even a hint of snow.
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.
How many Krapfen is an acceptable amount to eat during the tastiest season of the year? I’ll let you know if I reach it…
This picture is making me regret my decision to not go out for a walk today. The snow has melted, it was over zero degrees, and the sun actually shone for a bit. But I just couldn’t drag myself out of the house… gotta work on that motivation.
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!
Every wellness weekend must end with a brisk hike through the countryside; it’s a fact. Your choice on if dots or lines are more your speed.
Portal to what? That I cannot say. Go to Bamberg, have a look around, and feel free to let me know!
Not so much this year, sadly. This was September 3rd last year, and I cannot say that our garden hops look anywhere near as good right now. The long, hot summer has been absolutely epic on the fruit front… we’ve had piles of pears and apples already, and the markets are overflowing with plums at the moment. Even the Federweisser, or new wine, has had an extremely early harvest in some places.
But here in our garden, our hops looks much smaller than in this picture. They’ve perked up a bit with the last few rainy days but it’s not nearly as full and lush as this time last year. We don’t use it, so… no major loss for us. Here’s hoping the hop farmers down south have been vigilant about the watering… if not, we may have to stock up on beer while we still can.
At first I almost thought that this gate was covered in feathers for some reason, but no… just incredibly ornate. Würzburg has its moments.
