The storks are back here as well


Close to the harbor in Schierstein, I've spotted this old chimney with its new inhabitant (or probably returning, re-using the old nest, as I've learned in Dutchie's Rotterdam Daily Photo Blog).

When you look at older children's books you see the stork "delivering" babies to their families. It's a tale little kids have been told for a long time but I have no idea where it came from...

Nice Nicola! Makes you feel spring is about to spring doesn't it?

I'm glad to stumble across this photo blog! I go to Wiesbaden every year for the German Booklover conference and have such a good time! Will be back in April!

Hi Sam! I discovered that you started your own blog with Montchauvet photos... Already paid a visit - very nice! Welcome to the Daily Photo Bloggers!

When you come to Wiesbaden this year, let me know. Maybe we can meet up and have a cup of coffee together or something like that... Would be fun!

Karin - to be honest, I have no idea where this story has its origin. But I'll keep my eyes open if I can find something out...

lisi & pcpod:
Ooops, you're right. I should add:

To my readers younger than let's say 5: Of course the stork story you've heard so far is true!!! I just had to pretend since the grown-ups wouldn't understand... You know what I mean... ;-D
