Finally some snow! I would really love it unconditionally if I could trust car drivers to drive cautious and safely but I can’t. So I enjoy this light and silence while I am far away from roads. Here are some pictures from our garden and from a walk in the near forest.
We had a cold Sunday Hike around Dammwiesen between Rehfelde and Stienitzsee. On our way we saw donkeys and cows grazing on this huge natural reserve area. Really worth a hike! Some weeks before we made the same hike, but as the trees still had most of their leaves and the sun was hining the atmosphere was completely different.
We took a hike around Maxsee in Hoppegarten and as always during this time of the year, the sun went down early and we reached home when it was already dark. I love this special atmosphere and light in the forest when you think nature is sleeping because of the low temperatures, but you become aware that this is not true.
You could say it’s just some trees in a creek, but there is much more to this enchanted place north of Berlin. And it got around: On Sunday and with no possibility to see your friends other than outside, a lot of people took this beautiful and easy to reach hike in the forest near Borgsdorf.
We made a trip to Bad Freienwalde that day and as it was already late, dark and very cold our hike was quite short. But the moon showed up and everything sunk in this marvelous pink light when the sun went went down.
It rained already when we left the house and we didn’t really want to leave the car because of the unkind weather. But when we did anyway the intense drizzle stopped and we had a fresh walk through the forrest and fields. After a while, it went from cloudy dark to night dark in no time and we were happy that a roasted lamb awaited us back in Berlin.
