Our local flower shop at the street corner always has the best shop window decorations. They are for sale also, I often have bought something I've never seen anywhere else before. I want to show you the winter decoration they have right now as it is way too cute. More detailed pictures under the cut.

Yesterday we got our first snow of the winter. I did not want to take the same pictures like last year (of my street and the little park where I work), you can see them here if you like: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/187916.html

We usually don't get snow for very long in Dresden so deep down in the valley, so it is always exciting for children. After work I did a quick walk in our big park in the city center.

The ducks and swans have only a small piece of lake left to swim in:

I was looking whether it was safe already to get the skates out, but maybe better not:

The building at the other side is a little restaurant / café called "Carolaschlößchen" (the lake is called Carolasee, named after our last queen)

I've shown you pictures of this beautiful landscape that's only about half an hour by train away from Dresden, in Summertime before. But these pictures - specially posted for my new friend [livejournal.com profile] topum - show the same place in December 2014, on a very rainy and foggy day. It made for beautiful pictures, the kind that you can find in calendars. Please have a look under the cut! Enjoy!

Since I will be almost 60 when the official celebration of the reunification will be back in Dresden in 16 years, I want to see and do as much as possible.

Even though the official holiday is on Monday it already started yesterday, it's going on for the whole weekend. I want to show some pictures of the fun I had. First I went to a fashion show with GDR fashion design and props, it was great fun. Then I visited the huts of all the other German countries, where you can eat and drink special things from there, saw the Bremen town musicants and a Wartburg model, and finally I watched the police orchestra playing Dixieland and a marching band. Click the LJ cut for all the pictures!

On October 3rd we have our national holiday, the day of unification. This year the official celebration will take place in Dresden. It is a different country each year, we had it last 16 years ago. The whole weekend will be full of exhibitions and stages throughout the city and I intend to enjoy the heck out of it.

Our big shopping mall Altmarkt Gallery had these nice displays showing a kitchen, living room, children room, school room, office etc. from way back then. Hope you enjoy my little picspam! If any of you have any questions, please ask! [livejournal.com profile] fueschgast do you recognize anything? ;)

Many many pictures under the cut!
