Mandelblütenfest Gimmeldingen

almond blossom
Japan. Libya. Knut. The depressing and troubling news we are to absorb everyday... What a great, great break we got yesterday! Very much appreciated and welcomed indeed!! We walked pass the vineyards Ölberg and Idig from Königsbach over to Biengarten to make our first stop at Mugler's out in the wine fields. Beautiful pink and white almond trees everywhere. Sun, sun, sun. The sky so, so blue. I am still going on all those impressions from yesterday!

And we were not alone, several ten-thousands had come to Gimmeldingen, yesterday! Cars along the vineyards and roads all over. We never made it all the way to the center into the 2600-inhabitant village. It was so lovely, out in the vineyards and under the trees. And in the garden of JFO.

Nice Riesling, Sekt and Schorle. Saumagen, Bratwurst and Crépes. Everyone was happy and glad. Now spring is here.
