Back to the Middle Ages, part 3

Hi Everybody!

Today I am continuing with the photos from Burg Linn:


A coot on its nest in the middle of the water:



The grounds surrounding the castle now have various uses - some of it is farmed, there is a riding stable and lots of beautiful allotments:










The signs are still written in the old German script:





Another heron:




Bucolic scenes by the pastures:









Social housing for bats:



Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  5. I enjoyed the armchair tour this morning with my cuppa. Such beautiful scenery. I love the brick work on the old buildings and the cheery banners or shutters. Gorgeous shade of blue on the duck's head. Enjoy your weekend.

  16. The first serious artwork I ever produced in the 1970s was of the Rhine castles. Loved your opening picture very much. Each picture that followed was worthy of painting! Another great post

  23. Wow, it looks like you had such a wonderful time! All the green leaves and pastures are lovely to see, it seems that spring is more advanced in your part of the world as some of our trees are not green as yet 😁. I hope you had a lovely weekend and wishing you a great new week dear Valerie! J 😊 x
