Once Upon a Time

The sun shone here in Germany, several weeks ago. Two kids and their dog went for a ramble on their village's farm paths and did a brief photo-shoot. They got lots of great shots, including this one of some concrete. And they didn't punch each other at all.

Their dog found himself in high spirits, as is his norm when being allowed to roam free, chasing with wild abandon anything soaring through the air--be it ball or bird. 

During the foray, parents of the three youngsters remained at the haus, tending to planting and general outdoor beautification efforts. 'Twas a lovely day for all. 

But the mild temperatures and cloudless skies didn't last. They were replaced by wind, chill, and intermittent rain and hail, for days (weeks?) on end. The resident matron haus photographer took leave of her camera, temporarily giving up hope of a photogenic outdoor environment.

But something tempered the chill: the appearance of incredible full, sometimes double, rainbows off and on. The kids were almost prompted to head out in search of pots of gold.

Never a Bad Time for a Parade

Right? So, yeah--these photos are from our town's Fasching parade back in, um, February. I just kept forgetting to blog about that day--and in the past month or so, I've come down with quite a case of Spring Fever and made a brief, impromptu trip to the States. I'm back to my blog now, and I thank you for sticking around.

General frivolity, bad costumes, tractors, Germans smiling at strangers (!), friends dressed as Hot Potato Queens, cough-syrup-ish liqueur a-flowin', and a freak snowstorm: not a bad couple of hours.

Back soon with some spring-y photos and tales of not getting stung by stinging nettles! Oh, and don't forget to come see me on Pinterest--I'm around there quite a bit!
