While the flowers and the house in the back clearly fits to the architecture and garden trends in Germany, what about the palm tree growing over it, in the open air ? Seems we're gonna become a mediterranean place too !

Oh yes wonderful capture , you did not mismap this ?? :)) well I;ve seen Palmtrees also in England .. ;), but perhaps in another decade or two we have the weather up here in Holland that France has now ! cheers K@rin … on March 2, 2011

No mismapping happened, this palmtree really grows in the open air in Germany.

The south of southern Germany however...

(And yes, the Municipality of Weil-Am-Rhein, where this was shot, cuts them every year and cover them with straw, allowing them to survive our winters).

Thought so is a Fernpalm I think , saw them in ENgland too !

ps did not mean about mismapping ! :) … on March 2, 2011

Cornwell and Ireland have live palmtrees all year long, thanks to the Gulf Stream (BTW, the average temperature in January in the Netherlands would be -25°c / -30°c if we hadn't that heating source coming right out of the Caribbean...)

Yes so we are lucky in a way , is freezing now here but only -5 … on March 2, 2011
