MyWorld Tuesday: Into the Trees

Photobucket

A wooden bridge in the Jenisch Park in Hamburg. The park was build around 1800 as a model farm and was turned into a public park in 1939. Big parts of it are protected areas and it's a good place to watch birds and to see magnificent old trees like these:

It also has the only haha I've ever seen, you can't see it here ;) (I couldn't get a good picture of it, sorry). It was probably built so that people living in the Jenisch House could enjoy the view over the Elbe without being disturbed by farm workers, the haha is right at the end of the lawn and is high enough that you really can't see if anyone is walking in it.

Hi Jennifer,
I like the bridge span with the trees framing it. That last tree looks as though it's shouting at us! A lovely leafy place!

It's wonderful the farm was turned into a park and not paved over and built on with stores.

that was a inviting series and even though we have places like that here in TX it is definitely different than I am used to DO you think it is the variety of the trees? Do you know what they are? Thanks for sharing that

Beautiful photos. The last one of the tree -- it looks like the tree is talking -- big mouth and eyes! :D (I have a good imagination!!!!!)

That is a beautiful bridge. The haha is very interesting, I'd never heard of such a thing. I would think people would fall in if they didn't know it was there.
