    A very idealistic picture, Manfred!

      Привет Анна, спасибо за комментарий!  :-)
      Why do you think, the picture is idealistic? 
      It is not unreal and it is not from another planet! 
      It is pure reality.  :-)

      Yes, dear Olga!  :-)
      In 1572 the manorial governor of Blomberg led to build this house. 
      As you see, it is maintained very well. The roof and the bricks between the timber frame were renewed surely, but the artfully carved oak skeleton is 440 years old!

    Halloween-castle-grimace :-)
    Ready for Halloween. My question: are these to scare away the ghosts or to invite them in? :-)

      Oh, Gypsy!
      With the answer of your question I was demanded totally too much!  :-|
      Because me, however, the answer also interests, I tried to read me smartly. :-)
      Halloween is the result from religious traditions and from ancient heathenish traditions.   
      - In the religious origin to All Saints' Day the eternal light should shine to the good souls of dead persons. 
      - In the heathenish origin, fire and light is used to cast out evil spirits.
      Thus, dear Gypsy, I came to the result, that the illuminated pumpkins should keep the spirits away.  :-))
