We’ve been residing here for almost seven years now, but it is just today that I got the chance to visit the field where chess flowers or Schachbrettblumen grows. I am glad that Mrs. S. reminded me about it again. Schachbrettblume (Fritillaria meleagris) is an endangered species that grows wild in grasslands in damp soils and river meadows. If you want to know more about thhis rare flower, please visit Fritillaria Meleagris on Wikipedia.

A Pet

It may be a cat, a bird, a ferret, or a guinea pig, but the chances are high that when someone close to you dies, a pet will be there to pick up the slack. Pets devour the loneliness. They give us purpose, responsibility, a reason for getting up in the morning, and a reason to look to the future. They ground us, help us escape the grief, make us laugh, and take full advantage of our weakness by exploiting our furniture, our beds, and our refrigerator. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Pets are our seat belts on the emotional roller coaster of life–they can be trusted, they keep us safe, and they sure do smooth out the ride.
