A WEEKEND IN GERMANY part 1

Last week we went to Germany for 2 days to a place called Walsrode, about 450 km from where we live and near the city of Hannover. In Walsrode you have the biggest bird park in the world with over 4000 birds of 675 different species, and the birds are shown in a beautiful flower, tree ans shrub garden. We have been there a few times before and each time it’s a real treat for both of us, my husband prefers the birds, I prefer the flora.

As one picture says a 1000 words I am going to let the pictures speak for themselves, when you click on the pictures you’ll get them enlarged. Part 1 is about the birds.

ONE YEAR OLD

My blog is one year old thanks to my readers who encouraged me so a big thank you to all my followers, and to those of  you who looked at my posts, gave me a like or a comment.

The following blog was my first blog post it was titled : BIRDPARK WALSRODE

Here we go, as promised, I’ll tell you about a beautiful birdpark called Walsrode situated in a village called Walsrode in Germany.  Perhaps you think what is a birdpark doing in a gardening blog, well it is a birdpark in a beautiful garden. We have been there several times in the past and we will go there again and again and again because it is so beautiful. We always go in Spring so there are loads of bulbflowers and rhododendrons to see, if you go later you have the roses and other flowers and shrubs in bloom of course. The park is huge so we go there for two days otherwise you can’t see everything. There are loads of pubs and restaurants all over the place so you won’t go hungry or thirsty, for the kids there are several play area’s.

Here are some pictures. If you click on the pictures you get a bigger picture.
