Riverscape – Dove Elbe – Flusslandschaft

A walk in Vierlande,  where the vegetables grow…  and fruit, to a lesser extent. The really big orchards are to be found in Altes Land, further up the River Elbe, towards York, Stade and the North Sea.

Sunday Trees 249 – Streuobstwiese

This is my contribution to Becca’s weekly photo challenge Sunday Trees 249.

Thank you, Becca – and thank you all for looking!🙂

An organic meadow orchard [Streuobstwiese] in the middle of a big city…

 

The fruit-trees aren’t trained like here, but more or less left to themselves, the grass is mowed only now and then to please insects and small creatures. When the fruits are harvested, schoolchildren learn how to make juice. The whole estate, Gut Karlshöhe, serves educational purposes for the environment, healthy living and sustainability. And the bees are happy, too. Don’t you think?

Thursday Doors – Big Tom is…

… watching you!

French windows are doors, aren’t they?

The cats have turned their backs on Hamburg’s beautiful cityscape, because you can have too much of a good thing.

They prefer dozing or admiring the big maple tree across the street or whatever catches their attention.

Sunday Trees 248 – Tree of Life

This is part of Becca’s weekly photo challenge Sunday Trees 248. Thank you, Becca!

No, I’m not going to bore you with Yggdrasil or even the worst film I ever saw. The tree of life is what I call the tall tree on a birthday cake I admired last Sunday. I was just a guest, but the birthday girl depicted on this culinary masterpiece was really true to life and so much more intriguing than a battery of candles! And yes, books always were and still are her life.

What kind of tree could it be? I’ll leave it to your imagination…🙂 A *beech* [Buche] would make sense, as it’s almost the same word as *book* [Buch] in German.  Yggdrasil was (or still is) an ash-tree, though…

My contribution to Becca’s photo challenge Sunday Trees 247 is a riddle. Do you know this tree? I do, because I read the sign.🙂 Looking forward to your comments…

Kennt Ihr den Baum? Ich war sehr erstaunt, als ich das Schild las. Das hätte ich nie erraten …

Das ist eine Baumdahlie, it’s a Dahlia imperialis.🙂
