My New Year’s Resolution to keep our blog up to date has officially failed. I had a good run going and now I have fallen a bit behind. Here is a quick blog to get me back into the groove and so you can see what we have been up to this spring.
Germany does spring in style. Everything here blooms. I mean everything! Everywhere you look the plants are in full color. I have been searching out some more local places for us to visit and I discovered that there is a beautiful street in Bonn, Germany that has amazing cherry blossoms that turn the street pink in the spring. The pictures looked amazing but the drive to see a street of flowers didn’t seem like the best idea with 2 small ones in tow (apparently it gets very busy).
Luckily for us, there is a town only 30 minutes away that also happens to be famous for its flowering trees and cherry blossoms. That town is Frauenstein.
As you drive into Frauenstein, the large cherry blossom trees are right there on the main street. When we arrived, they were in full bloom.
Frauenstein is also known for its many fruit trees and the fruit wines that are made in the region. We had just missed the peak season for the blooming fruit trees but some of them still had some white blooms left.
We parked downtown and were able to find a walking path through the vineyards and orchards. Germany is known for its walking paths. No matter where you go you can usually find a nice smooth path to get into the fields and nature quickly.
It was a lovely day and we all enjoyed getting out and enjoying the sunshine. We are starting to find our way around to the little hidden gems. More blogs to come soon!
