The Mauve Belles Of Eisenberg.

There is more to Eisenberg than World Class Wine!

Mental health and walking in nature seems to go hand in hand, and what mothers' have known through time, is now being studied and researched. Most of our Mum's uttered this well used line:

" Stop moaning and just go and play outside and only come in again when you feel better! "
As adults we seem to think that we've outgrown the walking in nature phase yet we now need it even more than ever to combat the constant stream of negative news, negative comments or just the sheer amount of information we willingly and unwillingly imbibe each and every day.

I like to imagine that the various images that nature provides are the new screen savers' of my minds. It needn't be anything ' flashy ' at all. Often the little unnoticed or hidden away bits of nature are those that make the most impact.

Walking last Sunday, I varied my walk ( oh yes, I am a true creature of habit ) and walked down Steinweg for a change and you know, I stumbled across the most stunning little flowers. My own little mauve belles...

Any locals reading this will know that Steinweg has seen many a walker late at night...returning from various functions. Amazing really, because there are no street lights, no tar but only a very steep lane filled with pebbles that is extremely treacherous to navigate. Walking downhill on a pebbled lane is not for the faint of heart...


Aren't they simply breathtaking? They were hovering on the verge next to the notorious Steinweg, and cast their lure at me...
Rather perfect and a nice new screen saver for our mind.
The mauve Harebells of Eisenberg...
