Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "Flowers are the smile of the earth."Today - on the official "pour a flower day", Hulk and I went on a morning excursion through the Thuringian Forest to the lookout point - quarry "Spittergrund" and the Ebertswiese with its great mountain lake.The tour started in the best weather. The sun was already high in the sky, sheep clouds adorned the blue with their white, there was a moderate wind and the temperatures had settled in a pleasant range.And so Hulk and I drove on the paths of the Thuringian Forest past the soldiers' graves, which always arouse an oppressive feeling in me: soldiers in adolescence who had to give their lives despite the end of the war ...The path continued to the "Spittergrund" lookout point. The last rainy days gave nature a real boost - the trees and bushes showed themselves in lush green foliage. The meadows drove up the grass and the wildflowers stretched towards the sun. In the rays of the sun, the leaves shone in the most beautiful shades of green and the sun pulled the moisture from the forest floor and with it a wonderful scent, which is typical for spring. At the lookout point "Spittergrund" I was rewarded with the first foresight into the country. I wasn't the only one enjoying the beautiful weather - countless insects had settled on the signage of the lookout point and cavorted on the reflective plate.The journey continued to Ebertswiese with its mountain lake.After the tour had mainly been uphill until then, Hulk and I were rewarded with a rapid descent to Floh-Seligenthal. Every now and then, however, I had to brake hard to be able to enjoy the wonderful view of the Schmalkalder region.Back it went over the Struth to the Bollwiesenquelle. Here I was able to live up to today's day and supply a few flowers with the spring water and a cup placed there. On this route, too, there were always beautiful viewpoints into the valley. Past the Wedelbach pond (which was well attended today) we went to the old Tambach dam, which is always a beautiful motif, back to Georgenthal.
A song that shot right in the head when I saw the soldiers' graves:
And again you made a great trip, accompanied by a great column. Awesome 🌼🌸🌹
