I know there’s gotta be rain

If I want the rainbows

And I know the higher I climb

The harder the wind blows

 

Yeah, I’ve gone to sleep

Night after night punching a pillow

But do you know the darker the night

The brighter the skies glow

 

‘Cause I am resilient

A full flower moment

Won’t let the concrete hold me back

Oh no

 

I am resilient

Born to be brilliant

You’ll see me grow right through the cracks

Yeah, ‘cause you’re gonna watch this flower grow right through the cracks

While some plants are withering, others are starting a new cycle. Have a wonderful Tuesday.

In around 970, the Eastern Franconian nobleman Reinger founded the Parish of Detwang in the Tauber Valley, just below the eventual site of the town of Rothenburg. The Parish Church of St. Peter and Paul was the parent church of the later town church of St. James.

Around 1080, the Counts of Komburg built a fortress on the so-called “Vinegar Jug” (next to the Infirmary). In 1116 the family endowed its largesse on the Convent of Komburg (near Schwäbisch Hall) and the Monastery of Neumünster in Würzburg.

This muscular juniper is one of my favorite trees. It is male* and lives in the pasture, near the fence/road and gets a good amount of water during irrigation season. There is a female juniper that lives just across the road and sits near a pond. She is round and voluptuous, and if a person knew nothing about trees, they would still immediately recognize these two are in love. She produces enough juniper berries (thanks to this one) to supply a year's worth of gin for a country. Gin derives its signature piney flavor from juniper berries.

 

*Juniper is dioecious, which means that individual plants are either male or female, unlike most tree species, where both male and female flowers occur on the same tree. Male flowers appear as yellow blossoms near the ends of the twigs in spring and release pollen, which is wind-dispersed. Female flowers are in the form of very small clusters of scales, and after pollination by the wind, these grow on to become berry-like cones.

Rothenburg only started to recover when, in 1873, it was connected to the German railway network. Prior to this, the city had been “rediscovered” by artists, writers and academics and was presented to a broader national and international public as the epitome of “old German” urban architecture. Tourism began to play a key role in the town’s economic life. Industrialization also made its mark, albeit at a modest level, the population increased and the town prospered.

 

From 1871 onwards, a small Jewish community settled in Rothenburg once again. The expulsion of this group in 1938 was a black day in the history of the town, which was glorified by the Third Reich as a perfect example of German culture from 1933 onwards. Another black day came in the shape of an American air raid during the last weeks of World War II, when around 45 per cent of the old walled town was destroyed. The successful rebuilding of the town in the post-war period is the most significant achievement in Rothenburg’s recent history.

A true medieval gem, Rothenburg ob der Tauber (meaning ‘above the Tauber River’) is a top tourist stop along the Romantic Road. With its web of cobbled lanes, higgledy-piggledy houses and towered walls, the town is the archetypal fairy-tale Germany. Urban conservation orders here are the strictest in Germany – and at times it feels like a medieval theme park – but all’s forgiven in the evenings, when the lamplight casts its spell long after the last tour buses have left.

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a town in the district of Ansbach of Mittelfranken (Middle Franconia), the Franconia region of Bavaria, Germany. It is well known for its well-preserved medieval old town, a destination for tourists from around the world. It is part of the popular Romantic Road through southern Germany. The name "Rothenburg ob der Tauber" is German for "Red fortress above the Tauber". This is so because the town is located on a plateau overlooking the Tauber River. As to the name "Rothenburg", some say it comes from the German words rot (red) and burg (burgh, medieval fortified settlement), referring to the red colour of the roofs of the houses which overlook the river. The name may also refer to the process of retting ("rotten" in German) flax for linen production.

Rothenburg is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Germany and is also probably one the most touristy! I was lucky enough to visit May 04-05 so was on the early shoulder season and had some room to shoot picture without tripping over people. The city has parking outside the old walls for tourists and it is definitely less hassle than trying to drive around in this compact lovely place. This city gate scene was taken walking on my way to the Hotel Zum Breiterle to check in with my D750 and my trusty Tamron SP 24-70mm 2.8 G2.

While buildings within the walled city reflect the city's medieval history, this part of the city is in many ways a normal, modern German town with some concession to the tourist trade. Many stores and hotels catering to tourists are clustered around the Town Hall Square and along several major streets (such as Herrngasse, Schmiedgasse). Also in the town is a Criminal Museum, containing various punishment and torture devices used during the Middle Ages. A staple pastry of Rothenburg ob der Tauber is the Schneeball, deep-fried dough shaped like a snowball and covered in either confectioner's sugar or chocolate.

At the beginning of the Modern Era, several events occurred that decisively changed the public life and the legal, social and religious structure of the town in the subsequent period. The members of the town’s once thriving and influential Jewish community had all been driven out by 1521. Social unrest and entanglement in the Peasant’s Revolt weakened the town in 1525.

 

In 1544, Rothenburg broke its old church ties by embracing the Lutheran Protestant Reformation. The two convents were dissolved. The town lost much of its political significance but, thanks to its rich agricultural hinterland, remained an important economic factor in the region.

As a Protestant town, Rothenburg not only suffered from a permanent conflict of loyalties with the Catholic Lord of the town, the Habsburg Emperor, but was also condemned to economic ruin by passing armies, billeted soldiery, contributions obtained through coercion, and pillage. It was captured several times by the military (1631, 1645), and it population was decimated by plague.

Rothenburg still retained its Imperial credentials for a further one hundred and fifty years. This finally came to an end in 1802 and 1803, when the town fell to the Kingdom of Bavaria as part of Napoleon’s reallocation of lands. In addition, the western part of its former territories was ceded to Württemberg in 1810.

L'ultima in fondo è la rosa fiorita dopo la nevicata di fine dicembre. È sempre splendida, così come quella fotografata vicino all'albero di limoni. Tanto belle da sembrare finte. Hanno resistito a tutto : pioggia, forte vento, gelo.... E infondono forza

 

Ogni mattina è una nuova luce, nuova lezione di vita da imparare . Sapendo che la felicità ti rende gentile, i dolori umano, i fallimenti umile e le prove forte, tra una lacrima e un sorriso trova sempre la voglia di guardare il giorno con la speranza nel cuore...

Always her..., beautiful. ( the rose that bloomed after the December snowfall )

 

Every morning is a new light, a new lesson of life to learn. Knowing that happiness, makes you kind, the sorrows understanding, the failures humble and the trials strong, between a tear and a smile always find the desire to look at the day with the hope in your heart....

It's always amazing to come across these old homes and find them still standing. This one was a little south of Hwy. 2 east of Farmer, Washington.

 

Constructive criticism always appreciated.

This is a re-edit. The improvements are seen mostly in the detail of the sand and grass, and in the crop.

Twisted and broken by the elements, a juniper clings to a small knoll and reaches into the storm filled sky that partially veils West Mitten in the distance of Monument Valley, Arizona.

Same tree, different angle, captured on the way back down the trail. Another shot of this really cool, gnarly tree that made it's way over rocks, around other growth and off the beaten path. Somehow it still survives.
