Unter den Linden


What a relief -- no more raking leaves in the courtyard.
(Can you tell it's R day at ABC Wednesday?)

The leaves have all fallen and now is the time for community members here in Austria to clean the gutters and sweep the roof.

The one tree in the courtyard kept me busy raking the grass this past month.
The linden tree is about 110 years old!

Melody and Leslie, shalom. I am on a one month volunteer stay at the Franziskusgemeinschaft Franciscan farming commune in Austria.
And the person in the purple shirt is a young woman member of the community. The fun outdoors work is not just for men here, as I found out. :)

Dina what is a linden tree? Is it like a maple tree?

Su-sieee! Mac said...

The leaves have only begun to fall in our yards. That's neat to have a 110 year old tree living with you. The stories it could tell. :-)
