In July, we are amazingly welcomed with a guard of honor (Spalier auf Deutsch) formed by the grapevines! Come on in, walk through it, softly let your hands touch these stunning plants and feel the joy.
What do you reckon: how many bees share this beautiful planet earth with us? Read more
Just compare today’s header with February’s! Mind-boggling.
Isn’t nature such a dazzling, spectacular, and beautiful power?
Here we are, already in the middle of 2019 and sweating in a crazy heatwave in Europe. And it is time for grapevines in June! I’d like to present you with some eye candy. What happened since May?
The flower buds have grown of course and opened up. Hooray!
If you are new to my blog – welcome! I have a series on the growing of grapevines this year and you may want to check out the other months in order to fully appreciate the stunning development. Simply click on the month: February, March, April, May, July, August, September, October.

As you can probably relate from the heading photograph, I treasure fond and deep memories of sleeping in veritable wilderness surrounded by nature’s sound – which can also be absolute stillness – watching the sun go down and rising over breathtakingly vast and wonderful landscapes sharing the outdoor lounge with wildlife of all kinds and sizes such as spiders, mosquitos, birds, baboons, crocodiles, kangaroos, lions, elephants…
