Germany Vlogs – Days 1 -4

Sorry you haven’t heard from me all week. In addition to getting a new routine with daily exercise and time in the kitchen to prepare healthy foods, I also had blog problems with getting photos into my posts… which are still ongoing. In the meantime here are the first 4 days of the vlogs from Germany.

Flowers and trees of Germany (France & Austria)

Flowers and Trees of Germany (France & Austria)

I took quite a few flower and tree photos while in Germany. Since I never had room to include them in my daily posts, I’d thought I’d share them here. When we arrived in Germany I was so surprised to find bare, barren trees (I shouldn’t have been but we don’t have a lot of deciduous trees where we live). It was fun seeing things green up day by day. And I LOVED all the potted and wild flowers all over the place.
So sit back and enjoy this splash of colour.

Love, love, love all the window sill displays. Some of which were still left from Easter.

I’d love to see what this is like with leaves. I’ve never seen a tree like this.

This is a flower (weed??) that Kevin picked for me (from a field)

This blossom was my favourite
As you can there was a huge variety of flowers and trees, many of which I’ve never seen before. It was a real treat for me getting to see them all.
