Bare Trees and Mistletoe

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Today’s weather meant no good photos from my Sunday walk, so here’s one from last Sunday instead.

Trees with mistletoe growing in them, fish ponds, near the Rhine.

Sunny Weekend

Sunday, February 26th, 2017

We had really lovely weather these past days, really spring-like and almost warm at 12°C (54°F), so I went for long walks three days in a row. This photo is from yesterday and shows the river Rhine roughly at the point that is closest to our house.

We had a friend from the UK staying with us this week and went on a day trip to the Black Forest with her on Thursday. We had a little bit of snow at home (very low, very near to the Rhine river), but there was more than enough in the Black Forest! We stopped at the Mummelsee (elevation 1028m) and climbed the highest mountain in the Northern Black Forest, the Hornisgrinde (elevation 1163m). We experienced a few short snow showers, but mostly the weather looked like this:

Frohes neues Jahr!

Angeblich soll man ja für Glück und Wohlstand im neuen Jahr Linsen essen – ich habe gleich einen ganz großen Topf voll Linsensuppe gekocht, der sorgt auf jeden Fall auch ohne Aberglauben für ein wohlig warmes Gefühl im Bauch.

Gutes neues Jahr!
