The Garden City, Wolfenbüttel, My Second Home

Wolfenbüttel - is not just famous for it's historical castle, and medieval buildings and houses from 1500's or more. It's also called "the garden city" because all around the farmers plant the seasonal vegetables and fruits. So,we get them all fresh ;) here is the colorful side of Wolfenbüttel... ;)




in spring time "Raps" (canola flowers) are all over the farms and also cherrys, apple, berries and more.. they bloom in spring time and in summer is the harvest season.



apple and cherry trees...




me ( teehee ) ;) we went to just wandering around the farms.. i'm not sure if this tree is cherry or apple or pear ;)




i don't know the name of these flowers, but it's beautiful ;)

these are cherry trees... now they are being harvested






nice alley in Wolfenbüttel.. around spring time..




biking around Wolfenbüttel...



at the Nature Park, Wolfenbüttel





these are also grains for making bread or beer, ( wheat, rye, barley, yeast) this traditional windmill is where they get the energy to produce the flour for making bread. Now it's also a museum.



in spring time, we saw this butterfly while wandering around the farms...





strawberry season is every month of May and June and only very short...





That's my second home and it's colorful side ;) please wait for my entry in Varied theme for it's historical part ;)
