Hi! Maja..Such a fine photo..everything looking fresh and bright and as you said, waiting for the first flush of spring..

The old historic town walls have been nicely preserved and careful planning has resulted in sympathetic development.

I am thinking that this must be near your home Maja..It seems a very pretty place..

Kind regards ;>)

Dear Maja,

The compact European villages and towns surrounded by their farming land and forests are charming in almost every case. I never tire of them, village after village, country after country. Here of course settlement was never plagued by wars and so early settlers lived on their farms, in fact the first wave were required to live on their farms continuously for 5 years before they were granted title. So our rural landscapes and in fact our urban landscapes are so very different.

You know well of my interest in Rüber, as a case study for example... and of Wöhrden and Blücher. I could go on, for each has its own story, each has its own distinctives but yet all belong to predictable patterns that interpret history, geography and economy for me.

Thank you for keeping my fascination with Europe's landscapes so alive.

Now WHO is the learned one der Ian??? Thank you for appreciating every step I take ~ remember this little village, it is really a lovely testimony of medieval was of living ~ I'll show you around some day :)
