TODAY'S FLOWERS # 272

My flowers this week were also taken in Germany.  We were again in the lovely town of Gengenbach, and decided to take a walk up a side street.  We were in awe not only of the buildings but of the beautiful flowers people decorated their homes with.  















The link to Today's Flowers on the home page opens at 12.15 a.m. every Saturday, Eastern Time (US).  The old link will close the previous Thursday at 11.30 P.M.

    I have just thoroughly enjoyed catching up with all of your recent posts!
    The animal images particularly squeezed my heart.

  4. HI Denise What wonderful displays of flowers people put on the outside of their homes and I love the architecture of the B& W buildings.

  6. The flowers en masse in their tubs and
    hanging baskets look so colourful and the individual displays in that quaint old street in Germany add a charming touch.

  8. I like that little German street, so picturesque. What I liked about certain parts of Germany and Austria were the traditions of decorating homes with flowers. I believe there was a law about keeping properties maintained and decorated in that way. Not sure if it still exists. Thanks for sharing, Denise.

  9. Wow. You are giving me ideas for next year's containers here at my house. I love these photos. My great grandmother Anna immigrated from this part of Germany in 1840 (to Chicago). I am thinking I would like very much to see it. My grandson was born at Landstuhl military hospital. Were you anywhere near it? Dianne

    PS, I am in love with the red Panda. He looks like a big pussycat.

  17. There is no better decoration than flowers. All this beauty would make strolling down the street so much more enjoyable.
    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

  21. These are lovely Denise! I am imagining being in that second shot. What a beautiful place!

  22. Marvellous shots and town. I love these old towns where the houses have 'grow' together. These are particularly nice with the cellar doors in the street. The flower box culture in Germany, Austria and Switzerland is just magnificent. They all try to outdo each other.

  29. I love that street. I think I remember that street from a previous post, when you used your cartoon effect. The flowers are gorgeous, and the photographs are a great addition to "Today's Flowers" meme.

  30. I just love the look of all those flowers spilling out of the windows. I don't see very many impatiens in Hawaii these days. Apparently they all got attacked by some kind of fungus. It's such a pity. Our impatiens got decimated by slugs. I'm so glad you had such a great time in that beautiful city.
