Just a simple blog about my move to Burgenland, Austria, showing the ordinary daily happenings, that make life so special.

Eisenberg's Gardening Club Makes Our Village Bloom With Colour.
Being surrounded by beautiful flowers makes it rather special to walk about.
I've made the flowers the main attraction. The pots aren't that important. The other evening, I noticed the Gardening Club ( make our village beautiful club ) planting all these delightful flowers.Sadly, we did have a hail storm a day later, but I thought that these flowers had to be seen.
We can all buy the same flowers, and yet everyone creates a different ensemble. This year ( oh yes, it happens each and every year ) the arrangement and colours are a step above. I just love it.
As we are in the middle of wine central, a barrel is never far off. Most villages have antique wine barrels on display.
Those almost black leaves are divine and provide a perfect contrast for the reds and purples. Just lovely.
Looking at these does make one forget one's troubles...I wonder if gardeners know what great pleasure it gives to others, seeing their awesome arrangements?
Last but not least...another delightful combination and you can see how close it is to the road. Thank you to all the ladies who have organized this. It is food for the soul.
