Hope your weekend is going well. I had an enjoyable day out
with a friend yesterday. We visited the botanical gardens at the
Heinrich Heine University, and I will be showing the pictures
when I have them sorted.
For Elizabeth' s 'summertime love' at Art Journal Journey I made a
digital page using elements from Mischief Circus, Serif and me:
I am also linking to Simon Monday challenge, red, white and blue,
and to digitally made, summer fun/patriotic.
And some more photos of Zons. Sabine is sitting on one of the bronze swine
at the 'Swine Fountain'
The graffiti are just chalk:
And here is the story behind it:
'In the year 1577 a 'swine war' broke out between the people of Zons
and the Archbishop Salentin of Cologne, caused by different
opinions over the taxes.
This fountain was created to commemorate the victory of the people
of Zons, who re-captured
their herd of swine under the leadership of Von Lauenburg '
I always love to see flowers and grass sprouting from old
brick and stones:
We saw lots of tiny cottage gardens in front of the houses:
This one had rusty cats - extra for Elizabeth!:
Have a great day, enjoy summer,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
