Look what I spotted this morning? Snow capped mountains of Lohr!! Does anybody get excited at the first sight of snow or is it just me??
The first shot gave me enough reason to drag myself out of the house with the cam and go for a walk through the market place. For the past week, I have been pretty much feeling like hibernating..:)
I thought I could get a better shot of the mountains, but this was the best I could get. So, I headed back to the town to take shots of the "Tannenbaums" which are the fir or X'mas trees. These trees have been decorated by the kindergarten children from all the surrounding villages of Lohr.
The decorations are handmade, created by the little ones using paper, nuts, wood, pinecones, everything natural.
Every tree has a note describing which Kindergarten decorated the respective tree.
I got to witness a group of excited children decorating the below tree. It brought a huge smile to my face.
We should be getting home our Tannenbaum in two weeks. We cannot wait to get one and begin decorating it. Isn't it strange, whatever your age, at Christmas, you still feel childlike??
