Blogtoberfest- A Walk Around our Village Part 2

Let's continue our walk from yesterday through part of our village.
The house above may be a bit faded, but I think it has a certain charm.
Whilst the fellow below has a cheeky sort of charm.
There seems to be a tradition in the valley,
it may be confined to this area,
or may be throughout Germany,
of life sized figures sitting or standing outside premises.
They are usually business premises.
Last week as I was gardening a passer by called to me for instructions.
She wanted to find the artist who makes these figures.
Apparently she lives/or lived in the village.
We had a very nice chat.
Fortunately she spoke English!

This house is quite different from it's neighbours!

There is a lot of greenery outside this building considering there is little or no garden.

An attractive courtyard.

We are now heading back home.
The trees are looking particularly fine.
There are a few hotels, bars and eating places along this road.
In the warmer months they are popular with cyclists stopping for lunch and refreshments.
We stopped to admire this white dog.
Unfortunately Rufus started barking at it.
He thought it was real.
It does look rather fine though
don't you think?

I love the life-sized figures and the tree-lined streets are pretty. I know you look forward to enjoying all of this in the Spring too!

That courtyard is pretty. It all seems so different there.

That dog really did look real. I can't blame Rufus for barking at it. :)
