Corpus Christi – Fronleichnam

Standard

There is a religious catholic holiday in Germany called Fronleichnam

In English it is called Corpus Christi.

I was fortunate to witness it on Thursday, while I visited my mum.

Custom is that people make flower carpets where the procession walks along.

They are made out of leaves, flowers and petals of different colours.

I saw the fresh carpets in the morning, and they were so beautiful.

We saw the procession coming from the church.

 

The priest read from the bible and then they

continued to the town center.

 

It was lovely to watch in beautiful sunshine.

Is it Winter or Spring?

Standard

The weather is so confusing these days.

Just now it was snowing and it felt like -2 degrees

and on my walk I find this pretty thing braving the cold .

Tomorrow it is supposed to be +11 degrees.

The bulbs think it is Spring as they come already.

We take it as it comes and

let the sun shine from our heart!

My Garden Heaven

Come with me in my little garden.

Small but so enjoyable and beautiful.

Enjoy the small things and see the beauty in it.

My strawberries are coming so lovely this year.

They are bigger in size, as we had lots of rain,

still not quite red as we do not have enough sun, but…..

All things grow with love!

Slowly they are getting red though, see for yourself:

Almost any garden,

if you see it at just the right moment,

can be confused with paradise.

March sounds almost like Spring already…

I have heard the most beautiful bird

singing this morning, to introduce March.

Daffodils are out.

So let’s

Notice the flowers start blooming.

Listen to the birds song

Enjoy the sunshine

Appreciate the lighter longer evenings,

Bring colour into your life in March…

 Put the red skirt/ trousers on,

Walk more, be conscious of the trees.

Enjoy the fresh air and smile.
