Poppy Flower

10 06 2013

My parents are away on a little trip and I take care of their garden while they are gone.

When I watered the plants yesterday I noticed this big poppy flower.

It was already withered and the petal colors beautifully muted.

So - I took my camera and started to play...

Aren't these structures fascinating?

Why I Love Spring So Much

06 05 2013

Because all fruit trees are in full bloom right now and it looks absolutely magical!

After we had an unusual long winter over here in northern Germany we are now blessed with a beautiful warm and sunny spring.

There are many apple, pear and cherry trees where we live - even along the streets. 

Don't their blossoms just look like perfect little fairy-playgrounds?

Joyful Spring

17 03 2013

In a moment I will get on my pony for the very first time!

Her name is "Vicki" and she is an  austrian mountain horse - a Haflinger.

Funny - because we are at the north shore of Germany right now - flat land as far as you can see...

On our way up here we stopped at a flower stand and I thought you might enjoy a little spring flower greeting on a Sunday.
