The West of Turkey with the old towns Istanbul and Bursa was very impressioned for me. Culture and history are very important and I love the mixed of Orient and Okzident. I found a lot of very nice people and some new friends there so January and February were ending very rapid.
March and April are the time to visit gardenshows and flowerexhibitions.
In May I saw Weihenstephan near Munich and the Botanical Garden.
In June I had the meeting of the GdS, a botanical group of plant friends. This blooming car is in a special garden in Veitshöchheim. There are growing Roses and Clematis.
Very nice to see was the flower exhibition in Kitzingen.
Some private gardens in Unterfranken were a nice inspiration for me.
Very interesting was the visit in the Botanical Garden in Würzburg.
My second June journey was a trip to Shropshire in England. It 's not the most famous garden place in England but I saw wonderful gardens like always in England.
At the end of July I went to Hamburg. My Sempervivum group had the meeting 2011 in this town.
Auch in Hamburg war ein tolles Programm auf die Beine gestellt worden.
"Planten und Blomen" mit einer fachkundigen Gewächshausführung war ein Genuss, leider hatten wir zuwenig Zeit für das Freigelände.
We spent a great time in Hamburg. "Planten and Blomen" it 's a must for plant friends was very interesting but there were not time enough to see all.
More time we found in the private gardens around the garden of "Semperhans".
In August I had some short day trips to Munich and in the south of Bavaria.
In September we went to the Rhein. Hundred of Sempervivum were awaiting a new place.
The mountains and the seas of the south of Bavaria were my destination in October. This foto is showing you the Chiemsee.
In November I spent once more a wonderful time in Istanbul. I saw more of the great culture and art there.
And here I 'm now to celebrate Christmas with my brother 's family. At the end of the year I will tell you how it is to be in December in the Dominican Republic.
If you see it was not possible to do a lot of blogging this year. And I couldn't visited other blogs like in earlier years. So I say thanks to all which visited my blog in this year.
Ich wünsche Euch Allen ein schönes Weihnachtsfest und viel Glück und Gesundheit im Neuen Jahr 2012.
Und... ich will mich unbedingt bessern, Euch wieder öfter besuchen und selber mehr posten!!! Auf bald!!!
