Libby at A Simple Girl posted pics about her recent visit to Bavaria. I enjoyed her post so much, I just had to look again at my pics from my visit a year ago. Libby mentioned the cows with bells. Here's my pic of them. The cheese from them is great. The houses and stores were decorated and full of flowers. I was told that the flowers in boxes under the windows, especially the geraniums, keep bugs away from the screenless windows. Sure great to look at, anyway. Lots of bike traffic and walkers, too. The last one is my favorite. Doesn't that look like a postcard?

We were stationed in Germany for four years in the 7o's........DD was born there. One of my great memeories is the trip we took to that area. It did look like postcards most everywhere you would look. We took a side trip into Salsburg, Austria and I will remember the fountains forever!

Thanks for a nice trip down memory lane this morning.

Katie - thanks for sharing your photos again. I just don't think I can get enough of seeing the countryside. I noticed the geraniums growing in flower boxes and wondered why they are so popular. What a great idea . . . maybe I will have to employ that same tactic here at home *s*
