bike ride through rural east berlin

This weekend we took a train outside of the city and were surprised to find that in less than 20 minutes the urban landscape had completely transformed into picturesque countryside. Our German friend and guide takes these bikes rides almost every weekend in the summer, sometimes biking 6 hours to Poland! I might need to work up to that one, because the 35ks we did was just plenty for me at this point.

Along the way:

the landscape reminded me of northern Wisconsin sometimes.

My creation
We spotted some sour cherry trees that were perfectly ripe, YUM!

I have plenty more pictures of all the things we have been up to here so if you are interested go here. Hope you are all staying warm in NZ, I am going to visit blogs this avo to catch up on the many cozy scenes of winter baking, knitting, and fireside warmth.

facts about cherries :-)

Cherries are related to plums, peaches, apricots, and almonds, plus many others from this vast and versatile Rose family. Cultivated cherries descended from two wild species, P. avium, the ancestor of the sweet varieties, and P. cerasus, the parent of the sour types. Both are native to western Asia.

No wonder so many Germans settled here in Wisconsin; it must have really looked like home! I've seen some of those honor system produce stands around here, too.

Beautiful pictures!
