It took a long time but it was worth it – farewell Alpine snow

While you read the following article why not listen to my e-baroque compositions – just click on the box below:

or if techno music is more your cup of tea here are my techno/ambient compositions:

I hope you find the information below interesting…please visit chrisduggleby.com again.

Spring arrives and the snow gradually departs from the Wendelstein (as seen from my balcony in Bad Feilnbach)

Well it had to happen! The snow has decided to leave us. This weeks photos are quite a contrast to those I published a week ago (with RISKKO trying out his new sledge with his friend the Bavarian mountain bear – if you are interested here is the link). The first couple of pictures are taken from my apartment. The one above (of the Wendelstein Mountain) shows that if you go high enough there is still some snow around.

The photo below is of the local church which I also introduced last week. This is the view of the church as seen from my office. I prefer this view because of the great mountains in the background.

Like last week RISKKO and I also went to the recycling area but we decided to come back via the mountain path to enjoy the pretty Spring flowers which have shot up all around the Bad Feilnbach forests.

As well as blue skies RISKKO finds the alpine forests are covered in his favourite blue Spring flowers

After the long winter even the simplest forest flowers are keen to show off their splendour

Everywhere in the Bavarian Forests new growth can be seen as Spring returns

To observe nature at work in the Forests just look down at the fantastic flowers like this one

In addition to the great forest flowers I would also like to introduce you this week to RISKKO’s penfriend Duke. He lives in South Carolina and loves dressing up for special occasions. Clearly he is giving RISKKO some interesting ideas for his next U-tube video (Thanks to Bob Duggleby for helping Duke to send the pictures and allowing me to publish them)

In the last couple of weeks I have also published some articles which you might find interesting. One is an update, with some useful questions and answers about the latest outbreak of Bird Flu in China. To date 11 people have died and it has now reached Beijing. The link is here.

And for those thinking of taking a cruise on a luxury liner you might find the experiences of this German family interesting (this one is not for people who are nervous about strange beds – or strange bed fellows). The link is here.

I hope that for those readers in the Northern Hemisphere you are also enjoying the return of warmer weather. Time to unpack the shorts! By the way here is another little article about a rather unusual approach to marketing clothes based on the size of the wearer – just click here.

Have fun!
