February Forest Walk – Locks & Signs

The forest I took my walk in and around is surrounded on two opposite sides by fields, and on the other two sides are very large privately owned gardens on one side, and rented allotments on the other.

The keeping of allotments can be heavily regulated in Germany, and we tend to joke that someone’s going around every allotment with a ruler to see if the grass is the same height in each one. 🙂 Walking past the allotments didn’t seem very interesting at first, because I was thinking that if you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all. I did discover a few differences, though. Most of the gates had normal door-locks whereas a handful of others had padlocks. What I also noticed was that some of the owners seemed to have some trouble with unwanted gifts left at their gates by another species…
