Made in Germany 2


The building where this wisteria grows up against was in the next village. I often walked there when Kaefer still was a baby, pushing the stroller along - it was a 30 minute walk over there. This village - called Poltringen - had one of the best organic shops, called Mühle (mill) and I loved to buy fresh produce and fruit there. Usually, on our way back, Kaefer would eat all the strawberries (they were so delicious) and present her red stained clothes to me with a huge red smeared smile on her face.

Happy days.

Do you have anything German to share? A photo, a story, a memory - just leave your URL in the comments and we'll come and visit.

Hey Carola, nothing German but I wanted to let you know how much I absolutely love this image!

I left a comment earlier, I thought, on last Monday's image, Carola, but maybe it didn't take? Here's another image for this post which is one of my favorites from when we lived in Hannover two weeks of every month for two years!

Hi Carola... I just love this image and the memories behind it! My memories of Germany, come from a lovely German woman, who was like a grandmother to me when I was a toddler. She would teach me little German songs, listen to German radio, make her own butter, (that I can still remember the taste of) and hide a pickle ornament on her Christmas tree for me to find. :D Sweet childhoood memories!

Love your work!

Lovely story and lovely image Carola! You know I have images of Germany to share. :) Just click "Germany" in my tag cloud - but I bet you've seen them all!

I may have a few photos from Germany. They would be Instamatic (1"x1") slides from my college days - really poor quality, but I have scanned a few. Not even sure where they are, but the wisteria makes me sad that we had to cut ours down last year. I miss it, but fortunately we still have the jasmine. Really cool shot!

Beautiful! It really looks like you applied some texture in the post processing.

Lovely, lovely photo. Since my son has moved to Germany, married and has little ones there, I have loads of photos - though not necessarily of places. But if I do a post on some, i will send you a link. :)

My German post for the week will be about bärlauch, but it's not up yet. Yummy stuff.
