Yesterday afternoon's outing to Berglen

2012.04.15

Ever seen a cherry tree this big? (George Washington, keep out!)
pixel
The cherry tree again, with garden shed, otherwise known as a Hüttele in Swabian (Schwäbisch)
pixel
This reminds me of when I played the violin as a boy. The resin I needed for my bow.
pixel
pixel
I'm really lichen this plum tree.
pixel
The blossom and its four leaves make me think of a beautiful insect sitting atop the branch.
pixel
pixel
I'm lichen this one as well. (Couldn't resist.)
pixel
(Ditto)
pixel
Well, by the looks of this tree and its face, I guess Narnia does exist after all!

Everyone who knows me knows that had there actually been an occupant in that web, this picture would not be here. Had she been named "Charlotte", however, I would have chatted with her.

This Wetzstein (whetting stone) sits in the southern German countryside and yet it has an American Indian Chief on its emblem. Such subtle blending of cultures, don't you think? I wonder how many little German children ever looked at this box and wondered where in the Black Forest the Indians live?
pixel
Ah, how true, wine does give joy :-)
pixel
pixel
I was more interested in the hole in the floor than the rest. But, they all made a nice backdrop, nonetheless.
pixel
If the blossoms are white, then why not B&W? Apple tree.
pixel
Uh-oh. Miss A., könntest du mich bitte errinern? Wie heißt das Dörfle? Wir haben durch so viele gefahren, dass ich leider schon vergessen habe!
Ahhh, thanks for the email: "GRUNBACH"
pixel
Something "European" about this picture for me: the birch trees lining the roadside.
pixel
Illusion: this door is about a meter high only. It leads into a chamber about two meters wide and two meters deep and not much higher than the door itself. Probably never used for people. It was in the foundation area on which the church sits. There again, if there were ever any bad gnomes in the village, then maybe...
pixel
Ah yes, Fachwerkhäuser (half-timber houses). Seeing these always makes my day better.

Miss A. took me out to Berglen. She showed me the family fruit trees which are starting to blossom and then we rode through some of the surrounding villages of Swabia.

dalish wow...I'm "lichen" this whole set....but I have to say #23 is wonderful, the tools in the shed are marvelous, the wine crates make me want to clean up and most of all... Charlotte missed out on a great conversation ;)

DancingDolphin Well guess who's obviously out and about enjoying himself! 8^) I saw the face the minute I scrolled down to #11. I really like the idea of 'little people' living under the church... some sort of symbolism there don't you think?! 8^) The apple tree makes me miss my out bedroom in Ann Arbor... there were two just outside the windows and in the spring the blossoms were wonderful!!
DancingDolphin · 2012-04-18: 17:02
DancingDolphin That was supposed to be OLD bedroom... damn auto spell check! (I'm quite surprised the computer wasn't smart enough to delete this comment so as not to let me criticize it! )
