visiting my childhood home

garten02_ausschnittmy parents still live in the house i grew up in. it’s an old townhouse with a beautiful garden.

a very special part of the garden is this shadbush (amelanchier / felsenbirne) in our yard. i think it got planted quite quickly after my parents moved in – it’s about as old as i am. this tree/bush is surrounded by a bed full of different herbs (lavender, marjoram, tarragon…) and it has evolved into a wonderful playground for songbirds. when they’re small they can hop between the twigs and the roof of the shed and learn how to fly.
