St. Ottilien

St. Ottilien is a monastery in Bavaria, in southern Germany.

some of the buildings in the monastery

there are woods and gardens to explore

 

 

the meadows and gardens were full of wild flowers

 

springtime pollen

 

I found this poor mite in the nearby woods, covered in fly eggs

he lasted a few days on milk, and loved curling up in the palm of my hand
