Once a year we have fruit days in the town mainly from our producing farmers. They display the various choices they have, mainly apples. You are welcome to try their various exhibits. Due to corona, there will be no fruit days this year unfortunately.
One Word Sunday: Fruit
Nothing more interesting that looking through windows to see what the others are doing. I think I disturbed these two in a private moment.
I was not sure who was looking at who when I passed this window in the street where my dad lived in London. They were almost more curious than I was.
One Word Sunday: Nosy
Looking for pairs I stumbled across this photo in my archives. Actually it brings back many memories. It belongs to a supermarket I often visited and this is the original style. As it is today, many stores renew their appearance and this is the original form. This particular perspective of the escalator no longer exists, the store having been renovated and re-organised since, but I remember travelling on it often.

All the real action happens in the distance at our place. On a good day, from a high place, usually the local castle, you might be lucky and get a view of the alps, which was the case this week. They are further away than you think, about 2 hours by motorway, not counting the ups and downs over the hills until you get there.
Or often you can just take a tunnel which go below the hills and mountains.

There are always umbrellas ready in our town for the restaurants, but mainly as shelter from the sun.
We have a so-called restaurant mile along the bank of the River Aare. During the lockdown the restaurants and umbrellas all disappeared, but since the better days (not perfect) of the coronavirus visits, the umbrellas have returned and so have the restaurants.
We even cover our very few palm trees with their own umbrella during the cooler months.

The interior of various parking houses can be most intriguin. The way they combine the stairs and the lift.
Or look down into the depths.
One Word Sunday: Interior
Perhaps not so dramatic, but cleaning window frames can be quite breathtaking sometimes.
One Word Sunday: Drama
It is a local monastery and the gate is nearly always locked. Now and again it might be opened to allow people to enter or leave, but I do not trust myself to enter for a photo. The sculpture of a figure stands in the yard outside, but I have never seen its face.
One Word Sunday: Patchwork
I think I will have to wear my sunglasses this morning to see all these wonderful flaring sunny photos.
One Word Sunday: Flare
And how I missed it during our lockdown, but yesterday I broke out again. Even in a wheelchair you need to go places and see things. I arrived at the biggest supermarket in town, although no longer as crowded, due to keeping a safe distance to everyone and only a certain amount of people allowed in the store. For a Saturday afternoon not so many. Life is gradually returning to daily chores and I had the company of a few shoppers and the goods on sale. Even the geraniums have returned.
