I've not long returned from a lovely visit to my DD2 and her family in Germany and here's a taster of the pretty little town where she lives. It seems to be the fashion this year to decorate bikes with knitting. An extension of yarn bombing that we often see in England.
Carola , a blogging buddy in California (who was born in Germany) will love seeing these pictures as her mother was married in this town and I always think of her when I am there and wonder if I am walking in her footsteps.
A quick "Hello" to Mountain View California who always pops in but never leaves a comment! Thanks for visiting.
I love these painted benches
There is always some new public art around the place and this time I found a new friend to cuddle up to and it looks like he's had plenty of people doing the same as his knee was shiny. No artist's name to be seen and no name of the subject of the sculpture.
(I've since been told that it's Mark Twain but now I'll have to find how he is connected to this lovely little German town)
This, below, is one of my favourite pieces of public art in the town.
Maybe it reminds me of the main reason for my visit............
These two special little people had such fun on this spinner and big sister kindly did the pushing but I just couldn't catch little bro' when his feet were flying out in the air. He didn't have an ounce of fear!
As with most waterside fences, an increasing amount of padlocks are engraved and romantically placed by couples to express their undying love.
I was told that they were now causing a problem with their weight.
Here's one of my favourite town centre buildings and the horse drawn tour carriages, clip clopping around the cobbled streets, add so much to the atmosphere.
Lots more to come ......soon.
