Nature Notes: Jenischpark
A Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa), somewhere between 100 and 200 years old. The Jenischpark was originally the private park of the Jenisch family, designed as an Ferme ornée and there are many gorgeous old trees.
I believe those are snail eggs.
Edit: As John points out, it's probably a slime mold, maybe Tubifera spec.
two eyes and it's a Muppet
hawthorn (Crataegus spec.)
the dew hadn't yet evaporated
meadow saffron (Colchicum autumnale)
apples ripe for the picking - the trees are on public land and anyone can harvest there. There are also quince trees, but those were already all gone.
