I see, but can you be a little more explicit, please?

the dear Zé said...

ok ??!!?!?

Is that a pile of rocks? My eyesight is getting a little bad. Okay, it's always been bad, but now I have age as an excuse.

Wasn't me!!

Martina said...

donnie, that's exactly what it is .. of course :-P

ana barata, lol - no, I am not going to explain ... *g*.

dear Zé, perhaps there is something hiding in there? Something to hunt ...

kobico, no, Donnie got it almost right. Dictionary says the right definition would be "field mangel". And, you don't wear glasses so everything is allright! My definition of a good eyesight, grin.

Kenneth, thank you. I wasn't so sure if this would work in the small size or work at all but thought it okay at last.

Paul, lol - me neither. Where I grew up, when harvest was done and there were these piles of beets all over the place, we children took some, carved them out, put candles in them and went from door to door - I guess reciting some poems? Singing some song? Can't really remember. I only remember how difficult is has been to hollow them out.

Tough old roots these, wonder who thought to attempt to hollow them out!!?? Some parent who wanted to keep his kids occupied for a while I guess!! :)

Paul, thinking about this - finally grown up, some decades later :-) - I wonder we all still have all of our fingers ... it's called "Rübengeistern" in Germany - and will be replaced by Halloween in the near future, I am sure.
