Today we are going back to Germany. While Darrell was at his meeting at the University of Konstanz, I got an early start and took the ferry to the other side of the Bodensee (Lake Constance) to see a few more castles (ho hum).

|Not a slug with tentacles, but the shape of the Bodensee!|
|I know you are smiling!|
|And this one is darling too!|
My favorite garden was an Italian style waterfall garden. This picture does not do it justice. There was water cascading down a long, long series of stone steps with magnificent flowers on both sides.
|This garden made me want to sing!|

Speaking of humbling, the last two pictures for today illustrate part of their garden that is easily wheelchair accessible. They had vegetable gardens, flower gardens, places to sit and reflect or have a cup of coffee, and then they also had this interesting wall garden and an accessible water garden. I found it very inspiring!
