The Rain in Spain

Mijas, Andalusia… I only spent a few hours there, but I’m sure there’s plenty of rain in that area, because of the lush vegetation. The tourists were prepared, but the cat preferred it high and dry. Look, she’s making eyes at you!

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week-7 Time – morgens oder abends?

A belated week 7 from me…

This is my contribution to The Girl That Dreams Awake’s photo challenge 52 weeks. Thank you for visiting my blog!🙂

ten-to-eleven

So the time is exactly ten to eleven. But is it a. m. or p. m.? I give you three guesses (although two might be enough in this case.🙂 )

No effect without a cause – but how can we be sure?

Sunday Trees 254 – Palmaille mit Lindenallee

Lindenallee in der PalmaillePalmaille, one of the oldest streets in Altona, formerly belonging to the Kingdom of Denmark, now part of Hamburg. I admire the linden trees for bearing with the heavy traffic these days. How I wish cars would be banished from the city!

Sunday Trees 253 – Kusper, knusper, Knäuschen

This is part of Becca’s weekly photo challenge Sunday Trees. Thank you for looking.

We sat for ages in front of this exotic tree with the attractive bright green heart-shaped leaves. What could it be? Fortunately photography has already been invented …

Well, it turned out to be a katsura tree, but we love the German name best, because it’s either Japanese cake-tree (Kuchenbaum) or gingerbread-tree (Lebkuchenbaum). Looking round for the witch collecting building material for her little Pfefferkuchenhaus… No, she wasn’t around. But we found an explanation for the name. The fading leaves are supposed to emit a kind of gingerbread smell. I’ll believe that when I actually get a sniff of it!

Interestingly, this tree is a polygamist. To be fruitful and multiply a male tree needs five females.

The Lebkuchenbaum is on the left.
