Somehow either the lock or the string must be superfluous!

How good is the detail of the thread.

I wonder why the string. I've got a locked gate coming up in the industrial series.

Martina said...

Joan Elizabeth, as a relief to the chain? ;-)

Yes, that's what caught my eye - perhaps it's attached to make everything look properly? (It is a German "Schrebergarten" at last - translating as "allotment" but this does not really describe this German tradition - puh, I could make a whole series about these ... however, a Schrebergarten has to be neat, proper and they have lot of rules and rules and rules (even about the height of the bushes etc.)

MM, thank you!

"enclosure"

what ken we do?

(I've just edit a pict with the same name, and +- theme)

Interesting, I'll have to search on Schrebergarten!

Martina said...

kobico (!), aaah, tell me what you did find out, please. This must be so surreal for a Non-German ... . Perhaps I will show some Schrebergarten decorations today (if I find a quote): Gartenzwerge

Martina said...

kobico, just found this
Germany's Garden Ghettos ... ;-)

kobico said...

That's an interesting link, Martina. I have to admit I only got as far as being told what a Schrebergarten is. They have "community" gardens in the US, but they are not really geared for those in the lower economic brackets.

Martina said...

kobico, another interesting aspect is the difference between the German Schrebergärten and the Turkish/Maghrebi Schrebergärten - while the former are neat with flowers and gnomes the latter are mouthwatering with beans, pumpkins, onions, garlic and and and .. I am sure I once posted a photo - can't find it, though, :-(
