    Are the houses as lovely as they appear from the windows in this area?

      The core of the area is early 20th century terraces. A sort of garden suburb. They do look lovely outside but I don’t know anyone who lives there and have never been inside one.

    in northern German dialect mushrooms are called “Poggenstool”, meaning chair for a frog.

    Ah Sweet Amanita. Eat one of them and it will not be love you will be feeling under the moon and stars Funny how certain colour combinations attract humans. Similar to ladybirds. Both appear a lot in children’s books as traditional favourites..

    Love this! The mushroom, even though it is very poisonous, is considered good luck in Germany.

    The email notification in my inbox just said ‘Christmas toads…’ so I wondered what you’d been photographing πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I like this, it’s certainly very bright πŸ™‚

      Ha ha, to the best of my knowledge, no toads featured in this advent calendar! Not entirely sure how toadstools fit in either (a perch for the Christmas elves maybe), but I agree it’s bright and cheerful.
