|1947: Flowers (Design - Hans Fischer)|
Fast forward to summer and the Heliopsis which I love and is sometimes unkindly called the false sunflower so
|2000: Millennium - Tree and Leaf|
here is the real thing although most spectacular when there are hundreds of sunflowers in a field.
|2008: Grains (Design Beatrice Wurgler) + 2007: Birds (Design - Eva Weber)|
Golden fields of barley are wonderful in a different way with their quiet rustling in the warm winds of summer. If one walked through the fields a Great Tit might be spotted although is more likely to be seen in woodlands and at the garden feeder.
|2013: Europa - Postman's Van (Design - Gunter Gamroth)|
Yellow is a popular postal colour and how inviting this image is, it makes me want to jump into the driving seat. The vehicle is Lloyd Electrowagen of 1911 used for parcel delivery in towns and suburbs. The German Postal Service continued to use electric vehicles until the 1960s, indeed some of them were so robust that they had been running for 40 years. Today Deutsche Post return to that era in spirit as they hope to have 60% of their vehicles running electrically by 2030.
