Spring in Germany
We spent a few days in Germany last week and had a wonderful time. Germany is so beautiful, especially in the Spring. We saw so many tulips and other flowers. These are my Dad's flowers. He has tulips and daffodils, and a lot more.
They love Easter in Germany. Cute little decorations are everywhere. Below is my parents' "Easter Egg Tree". Below that is a neighborhood Easter Egg tree, from a house in my parents' village, on a type of evergreen.
We love my parents' across-the-street neighbors. They own a wonderful restaurant in another village and have always been so nice to us when we visit. In the summer, they've brought over sweet cherries from their tree for our "kinder". :) This time around, on Easter Sunday, she brought over a cute plate full of Easter goodies for our kids, including delicious Kinder eggs, painted Easter eggs, easter cookies, and some candy. A few days later, she brought over some jars of sour cherry preserves from her trees, for our "Kinder" again. I was able to bring one jar home with me!
Soon, I will have to post about all the wonderful food we ate. I always come back with some extra poundage. So many carbs, so little time.
