A Day In The Garden

IMG_5835I am a known plant killer. Exactly none of my thumbs are green. But Germans are notoriously great gardeners who love to spend hours upon hours tenderly caring for their plants. My internship supervisor has a garden plot in a community garden area here in Frankfurt and it  is just gorgeous. She always invites people from the church to come help work in the garden if they like or just kick back and relax! I and a few others joined here there for the majority of the day, and I even learned a thing or two about horticulture ;P Below are a few photos if you’d like to see.IMG_5902^Sweet little BenetaIMG_5781IMG_5776^Me posing as a garden expert…IMG_5887^Please no photos!IMG_5879^Wahed is so sweet with the kiddosIMG_5774^Ayrich is a five year old goof ballIMG_5872IMG_5814IMG_5813IMG_5806IMG_5805^Selfies in the garden house windowIMG_5802IMG_5798IMG_5793IMG_5792^Love these wild flowers!IMG_5864IMG_5863IMG_5847Have a good one friends!

Palmengarten

I went to the Palmengarten on Saturday with a few ladies from the church. It is a beautiful, peaceful botanical garden smack dab in the middle of urban Frankfurt. You can even see the skyscrapers downtown from the middle of the garden! It was such a relaxing morning, and some of the plants (like the cacti pictured below) really reminded me of California. I would definitely recommend a visit if you’re ever in Frankfurt– the cost is seven euro for regular adults and three for students.

I hope you’re having a great week!
