Westerstede - Next on to Helmut and Gerda's home

Next on to Helmut and Gerda’s home, they also work out of their home. They have a tree farming business and sell tree’s and bushes to distributors, Russian distributors, if I got the story right. They are slowly retiring, so they are not planting anymore just harvesting as the trees/bushes get to a good age. Once again everything was excellent as we were treated to great conversation, great tea and snacks, and all round good time. Thanks Helmut and Gerda!

I really liked their tree farm and could imagine seem my self doing this career. I myself really enjoy gardening, trees, and ponds and felt a real bond with Helmut. Helmut also liked photography, like me, as he gave out some of his prize photos from his tree frame. Thank you, I plan on putting up a bunch of photos in my office from our all our travels and will find a special spot for your photos.

Helmut and Gerda and tea time (pictures have blurr, as i like to shoot without a flash and always seemed to catch someone moving):
Great tea and conversation:

There is a sketch of the Zwinger (Dresden) on the upper right of this picture. Dresden is a very popular place to visit with Germans and i was proud to see the sketch hanging up as it reminded me of our favorite German city:

More images from around the table:
