On our recent trip to the UK, my husband decided to play the fool…..several times! Above here was on a very bouncy ferry from Cherbourg to Poole. The below on Winchester Train station!
These are the hills to the south west of our flat.
It’s here we look to for a lot of our weather comes tripping over these hills.
Just in the edge of the Nockberge mountains. I just love the summer colours, much more than the snow!!!!! Look at my blog header!
The really simple life!
This is more of a one time meeting place, every five years, on the sportsfield in Tamsweg when there is a huge get together for all the marching bands, Tracten frauen, Shooting groups and jolly clubs -the Volkskultur of Lungau
( I was attacked by a polar bear, sadly he lost his head after I had collected my wits and camera).
But most of all, the entire gang of Samsons in Austria. Here’s the best -the one from Ramingstein!
The Christmas Egg Shop in Salzburg
Couldn’t resist this one after seeing Ailsapm’s visit to Leavensworth. We have a Christmas shop in Salzburg which features decorated Christmas eggs. Here’s a reblog of me last visit there!
We found this shop several years ago, when it was a wet, cold day for tourists in Salzburg and just going into its colourful warmth lifted our spirits.
It does have a wonderful selection of eggs for Christmas and some new themes as shown on my pictures.
Here I want to feature the Easter Eggs. All ready for the Austrian/Catholic/Pagan tradition of having a tree of willow buds decorated in your house on Easter Sunday.
I do a tree too as a bit of colour to enjoy, no belief system.
But aren’t they pretty??????
The shop in in the Judengasse in the old city, so do pop in and enjoy!
And the plum tree that is the logo for my blog, feeling fresh in the morning!
And shadows in the fields from an morning stroll!
On a recent walk in the hills above Ramingstein, we came across this fellow at the old marble workings. I have admired the Council in the past for their sign posting here, but this is a bit radical! In the middle of the hill, they’ve planted this little garden and placed this Rammy figure made from stones. There’s different versions all over the village and the Lungau but this is the most unexpected and bizarre!
