Hard to believe, but true: All year, I had not been yet once to my parents' allotment! But on the 6th of August, I arranged to join them there in time for coffee and cake in the early afternoon.
Many times, I have done this with my Mum, but never on my own: Take the train from Ludwigsburg to Marbach and then walk for approximately an hour across a hill and up another, between vineyards, orchards and fields, to reach the allotment.
It was a pleasant walk and the weather warmer than expected. I took many pictures along the way. If you feel like it, you can compare this month's views with those from previous years, for instance on here.
Looking back towards where I've come from:
And now forward:
Nearly at the small town from where it is only about another 20 minutes uphill to the allotment:
Not as steep as this, though - these are just some of the vineyards I passed along the way:
Nearly there now!
No pictures of the allotment itself this time, but after coffee and cake (which was delicious, as always when my Mum bakes) I went for another walk. I'll show you those pictures in one of my next posts.
