Mike and I took a drive to a neighbouring village today.
We left the Pups with Danny.
He came with a cold and today he wasn't feeling too good.
A bit like the house above!
But isn't it lovely?
And the Autumnal decorations on the steps.
Kurbis, as they are called here,
are used to decorate the outside of houses.
I think the collection here looks particularly nice.
And of course I'm always photographing the window boxes.
They are everywhere.
The house below also has some rather nice wooden, carved, painted flowers.
Can you see them just below the window box on the left?
And after a stroll
we stopped and took a glass of Flederweiss
which is like a glass of wine,
but it is cloudy.
We're not sure what it is
but intend to find out.
The literal translation is feather white I believe.
And Zweibel Kuchen which is an onion cake.
More to Mike's taste than mine.
We just got back to the house when the heavens opened
and I got quite wet although I was only in the rain for a brief moment.
Mike later took the Pups out
and the same thing happened.
A great big black cloud came and sat overhead.
So instead of going for a walk
they took shelter under a tree.
Later Mike was feeling ill, but fortunately
he's feeling a bit better now.
So all in all
it's been a bit of a funny day.
Not at all what we planned.
