"Follow the Highway" - SOLD



Hallo from Germany! Unfortunately it took me 4 days to run down some mineral spirits, but it rained most of those 4 days anyway, so not much was lost. Germany is as beautiful as I remember - more so now that I've recovered from jet lag. : ) This scene is from on top of the hill behind my husband's parent's house. They live in the black forest - the fields in front are for horses, cows and hay.

The flight here was better than we had hoped. Jacob (4) slept about half the time, and more on the train afterwards. He's just about on Germany time now, which is fabulous! More tomorrow.
