In Quest of Blue Frogs – Sunday Trees

Last year I found a toad Bubo bufo [Erdkröte]  in a nearby nature reserve and read up on it afterwards. Obviously I had just missed the moor frogs Raba arvalis whose males may (or may not) turn blue for up to three days. So I decided to try my luck again a week ago, but all I found were trees in their usual colours. Better luck next time!

I actually knew what to look for, because a user named Fice uploaded this shot to Wikimedia Commons. Thank you, Fice!

Porta Gallica – Thursday Doors

Why is this a Gallican door? Because… Porta omnis divisa est in partes tres. And why can I only present this door in three parts, top, central and bottom part? Because of road works it wasn’t possible to take a shot from a reasonable distance. (Aside: Caesar, I really didn’t like your book on that war – I found it utterly boring and sided with your enemies! Too much bragging for my taste. You were a terrible narcissist and Brutus an honourable man.)

CFFC Hilde, du Wilde …!

„Hilde, du Wilde,

Was führst du im Schilde?“

„Du bist nicht im Bilde!

Nichts führ ich im Schilde.

Ich bin doch soooo milde …“

So milde wie das Wetter im Augenblick.

The big city park is called Planten un Blomen, plants and flowers, which obviously didn’t stop visitors to park their unwanted turtles there. They can’t be fined, because the creatures have no number-plates. In winter (which can be very harsh) they probably find it hard to survive, but in spring and summer they seem to adapt to their unnatural surroundings.
