Easter in Germany Part 2

Finally figured out what was wrong w/ the downloading of photos... *I ended up having to buy a new card reader.. So, we are back in business...

Here are some more photos of my local area and the fountains/etc decorated for Easter. IF you'll notice on the plaque on one of them-- the year that the fountain was created was 1932.. of course, I don't know what the words say in German.. but, I'm sure it's like most towns.. they tell the name of the fountain, who/why it was created and when.

Ok, let the photo viewing begin... THE 'egg' decoration that looks like a crown is in a nearby town.. where I go to the doctor. The one w/ the fountain is in the town where the military base: Grafenwohr is located. That one was the most elaborate one that I saw.


The bunny in the window? He's on display at a German Driving School.. you did notice the 'safety vest' right?

How festive. I love seeing how different countries celebrate special days. Glad you were able to get the photo-thing figured out!

It's so cool that they decorate everything so cool. I have a request. Pictures of chocolate shops. Mmmm. I love looking at chocolate displays, especially around this time of year ;P

your comment on the fountain's plaque made me curious enough to have a closer look: yes, it does say when it was donated and by whom...
2002, by those born 1932/33. *snicker*
