New Fire Truck

Getting a new fire engine is a big thing in a village as small as ours. Appropriately it was quite a party when the volunteer fire department presented its new truck to the public recently. Here are a few impressions of the event: Krautheimer Pilsner Oompah! FiretruckNew

Summer in Zeilitzheim

After an unusually-long cold (and wet) period, summer has finally reached Southern Germany. It is wine festival time in the region. Not a weekend that doesn't offer at least three "weinfests" in Zeilitzheim's surroundings. The garden still demands a bit of work, less with the shrubs and flowers but more with the lawn that needs to be mown weekly now. The children are enjoying the sunny weather and spend their afternoons after kindergarten. The castle cats Charly and Emilio usually join them in the garden. Here is a picture taken yesterday of Charly observing Mr. and Mrs. Duck who visit us daily for some royal bathing in the pond. Hunger

Zeilitzheim in May

May has arrived and nature has painted the countryside around Zeilitzheim in increasingly vivid colors. The following pictures were taken on a walk along the "Eulenberg" hill that runs south of the village. Zeilitzheim

Cherry Blossom

The last of the old cherry trees is now blossoming in the castle garden. I fear it won't carry much fruit, though. It sure is a pretty sight, though! Cherry Blossom

Springtime in the Castle Garden

Spring has finally reached southern Germany! (Not just) the cats are enjoying the great weather and the blooming of spring flowers. I've been busy taking pictures in the garden and will be uploading those in batches to flickr. Tulip. And  Charly

Now it's time for some intensive lawn care. The lawn got its first mowing on Tuesday and will get aerated this coming week.
