I've noticed that the Germans are obsessed with their plants!! Not just their gardens, which are very wonderful as well, but house plants.
I remarked to Sarge the other day that when you drive past the oldest, ex-barn, tin roofed, run down house, there are always tons of plants in the windows. It's like they see an empty windowsill, and feel the need to fill it. Fill it with plants.
I have not taken any photos as examples, because I think it's kind of weird to take pictures of peoples front windows.
As a comparison, there is the front window of out American friend's house.
Only a few plants, and quite afew of those are dying. I laughed at her, but she said she warned her landlord when she moved in, and told him that she was death to plants, but he still left them.
Another funny/geeky thing.
These are the trash cans in the laundry room at the hotel we are staying at.
I'm such a dork. Though in the photo they don't look quite as Dalek-y as they did when I initially saw them.
