Der Bär pflückt Äpfel?

Wim de Vries on March 13, 2009

Folgende Erklärung habe ich gefunden poly:

"This statue weighs almost 20 tons! This statue is sometimes translated as the Bear and the Strawberry Tree. The Madroño tree (which sounds like Madrid) is not native to Madrid. And it is not a strawberry tree. The berries of the Madroño tree are red like strawberries. However they are very sweet and are really not good eaten raw (unlike strawberries), but are only good to eat when made into a jam." Link

Wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochende!

Gruß, Wim
