Bavarian August Flowers

I have to admit it. Last year, I went a bit crazy with flower photos. This year, I tried really hard to contain myself. But now my resolve is crumbling… Bavaria is all lush and green and in full bloom this month, and now that I’m back in dry-as-a-crisp Toledo, I feel an overwhelming compulsion to drape some cheery blossoms over my blog…

    What a change from cakes! πŸ˜‰ Those Japanese anemones in your first shot are great … I have some in my garden, not quite so prolific! And I’ve used them as subjects for some of my Beauty in Decay shots, where they don’t look as pink and vibrant!

    I’m so in love with the gardens in Bavaria. And don’t worry, you’re not the only one that takes a ridiculous amount of flower pictures! The only problem is that it gives me total garden envy. We have a big one, but it looks more like the local haunted house than anything else. I cleaned it up a ton this spring but it gets out of hand so fast, and vines are now my mortal enemy. I might have to hire an Oma to beat ours into shape for next year. πŸ™‚

        You aren’t kidding. So. Much. Work. It doesn’t help that the owner of our house “prefers the wild look.” Or, as I like to say, “doesn’t want to locomote his ass up here from Neumarkt to clean up the garden.”

        Well, we do have a sickle in the garage. The weed killer might have to be a covert operation next time BV is gone. He’s very anti-chemical (coughstereotypicallyenvironmentalcough).

    I was at Columbia Road Flower Market today – just to make you jealous, sorry. And it’s going to rain tomorrow – I’m not looking forward to it but you’d probably love some in Toledo!

        I actually can’t be around them – I had boyfriends that bought me flowers and I would give them to my mom because I’m pretty allergic to pollen, but I still love to look at them πŸ™‚
