Outside in the park again
I still enjoy climbing on tree trunks!

Well, these were the photos I selected from our visit to Vordenstein, hope you enjoyed them as much as I did being there. Thanks for your patience! I wanted to post them sooner, but I have been away for 4 days to Germany meanwhile. We went to another music festival called Maschinenfest which is a yearly event and means 3 nights of enjoying a large selection of artists under one roof and lots and lots of dancing into the early morning hours!

Here are just a few little snaps I took in a German supermarket, thought you might find it funny, too!

Yes, I am for sale!

Hope you are all having a good week meanwhile! Please leave me your lovely comments, I am looking forward to reading them! Are you all enjoying Autumn?

  1. What a great place to visit the gardens are stunning. The dahlias are a real delight and so large! I love Autumnal colours, a log fire and warming soups and stews.

  6. Thanks a lot for such colourful photos. They are able to cheer me up on these dark, rainy and gloomy days. Can't believe that the warm days are over now. But now the tea and biscuits weather has begun.

  7. Hi Ingrid, a lovely post. So nice to see another part of the world and with blue skies! Dahlias...loving them, they are huge, such a colourful 'get out' there flower.
    Your German market display of pumpkins is a delight-super funny, who could resist.
