Travel Tuesday: gorse

gorse / Stechginster (Ulex europaeus)

Initially, this plant belonged to the colder parts along the Atlantic coasts of Europe. But, it spread out enoumeusloy by men. When british settlers dicovered the world, they took seeds of this plant with them. It’s spreading very easily and it’s hated by many people because it supplants local plants. So it’s called a neophyt, a ¬†invasive species.

But, I have to admid, it’s a very nice plant when blooming ūüôā

Take care!

uhhhhhhh …..

byIt’s November. Today we have Eternity Sunday here in Germany, I already explained it here¬†in more detail. Although this two things already can make you feel sad, the current (typical) November weather makes you feel blue and depressed, too. Additionally the weather can even decrease your mood.

Because of the grey, dark, wet and cold weather we currently have, I miss the colors. You, too? So, enjoy the colors in the above photo.

A big “thank you” to my wonderful model this summer. I took the photo during our Hippie theme photo shooting and edited it afterwards. At first I converted it to grey tones and at last I changed the colors back to blue and yellow. I hope, you like it.

Two other photos taken during that afternoon can be found here and here.

Take care!
