Last Saturday I stumbled over this beautiful wildness in the countryside near Berlin. A lot of heat resistent (steppe) flowers can be found here in great impressionist variety on a very sandy and dry ground. It reminds a little bit of Claude Monet’s painting “Les Coquelicots / The Poppies”. Nice surprises may be discovered anywhere, no need to travel always far away.

Now this will be the last feature regarding our Summer holidays in Austria, and after Ulli (who operates this blog) already has shown for instance some tracks left by Ernest Hemingway here in Montafon as well, it is now really time for some flowers and animals to be found in the beautiful Austrian Alps, colourful impressions picked up by me.
