Even On Rainy Days The Burgenland Hues Shine Through.

An ordinary morning...

This would be a typical Burgenland view for me. A lovely farm house, a field of gold in front and an endless horizon of meadows and fields. Pumpkins are at the moment everywhere and some have spilled onto the verges. Tempting but reason prevails!
The vivid yellow flowers of the pumpkin plant is like a decoy. Unless you look closer you don't notice the yellow rugby ball sized vegetable underneath.
These pumpkins are used for the world famous pumpkin seed oil...or some call it an energizer for men.

Mysterious looking " berries " in this shrub. The purple hue caught my eye and it makes a good contrast to the many shades of green.
A still very young apple tree is carrying fruit regardless. The red little apples do look good enough to eat...
Oh dear, I think Adam had a taste of Burgenland paradise...
A model chicken posing for this photograph. The little chick was so busy pecking away at a worm, while its mum just stood there posing for at least a minute.
As I said, it was a rainy day. Even cloaked in clouds of all descriptions, the vineyards are a joy to behold...
