Another Owl and Germany

I had to go home, but I didn't want to.
Just look at these pics, 
This was the start of a beautiful route through the Ahr Valley.
The narrow Ahr Valley, which was called „the wildest daughter of the Rhine“ by the Romanticists, is known for its red wines and gorgeous landscape.
Oh my, I want to live there!
We walked for hours and hours. . . .
Next time we will bring a picnic basket, a book and a blanket and stay all day.
After this 3 hour hike we visit a little town and indulged ourself with the local wine and food.
( I took little Ginny with me and she had a great time)
We were home May 7th and after the Mother's Day visit I managed to make another baby Great Horned Owl
In my Etsy shop today


  1. What a wonderful world we live in. Such beauty everywhere.
    Your new little owl is adorable. I just love the owls you have been creating.

  2. Thank you so much Joanne!
    The Netherlands are beautiful too but it is a small country and the woods are mainly artificial planted and in Germany you see lots of natural woods. And I so love woods!
    And so once in a while I have to travel to Germany to feel and smell the trees and rocks.

  3. Such a magical place to visit, Helen. It makes me happy that such places exist, and sad that I don't live in them :-)

    Your new baby owl is a delight!


  4. Thank you Beth, I feel the same!

  5. Oh I love the photos Helen! Enchanting for sure. Colorado has places like this too, very dreamy looking places up in the mountains here and I used to go up in the mountains every week-end. I am so glad you had such a beautiful get-a-way. Your new baby owl is soooooooooo adorable! I just want to hug the little darlin'!

  6. Oh Helen I meant to say I laughed so much seeing Ginny in Germany!! LOL!!!

  7. Really nice vacation, Helen! Yes, is good once in a while to walk between the trees. But I have to say, I love Netherlands - in the summer, when I fly back to Bulgaria, I see in Amsterdam big areas with tulips - love it!

  8. Hallo dear Helen,
    I just saw your photos from the Ahr valley.
    I live about 50 km far away, at the river Rhine and so does little redhead ;-)))))
    Your owls ar sooo lovely.
    Lots of love,

  9. Gabriele, in a year or two I hope to live somewhere near Koblenz ;-) making dolls, enjoy nature and the kindness of the German people

  10. Lots of love to you and the little man !

  11. Oh Helen, I can't believe, you are so lovingly welcome. I'm very happy to know you and your dolls.
    Ich freue mich auf Dich.
    Alles Liebe,
    Gabriele ;-)))))

  12. Gabriele: Wir haben einen schönes Haus gesehen in St.Goarshausen, vielleicht wir kaufen das und nutzen es wie Ferienwohnung und in 2 Jahre dauerhaft.
    Ein Katzensprung nach Koblenz :-)
    Viele Liebe Grüße,

  13. What a beautiful place. Glad you had a wonderful time. I'm glad I'm back on Blogger.

  14. Wendy, I'm glad to see you here ;-)
