that could have been another possible photograph for May theme day but I have no idea what these numbers mean. They are on the ground on the asphalt of the sidewalk.

blue and green

I did NOT edit this photograph (except changing the size for a faster upload), the trees are really that green.
The photo shows the Saar and a part of the grassy area alongside the river where are often kids playing on the playground or people relaxing in the sun.

I miss...

That is what I miss right now. I took this photograph about one or two weeks ago and since this photo we have an absolutely perfect blue sky and warm temperatures. This is great and it's cool because you can be outdoors all the time but there are so much pollen in the air right now so it's hard for allergic persons :(. It's the first time I suffer from a little hay fever and so I wish there was rain again for one day.

"postal code fight"

There are many people, mostly youths, who spray the last numbers of their place's postal code they live in on walls, houses or signs. It seems a popular thing among youths to show off where they belong to and sometimes they start to "battle" people from another postal code area. "117" belongs to Old-Saarbrücken, where I found this street sign and the smearing on it.

Yellow Bags

Another Yellow Bags post today.
Everything that's marked with the Green Dot you throw into such yellow bags. Once a week there comes a big car that carries the bags away.

Theme Day: Numbers

Those strange signs can be found everywhere in German cities. They are for e.g. firefighters because there are important informations about the street and there is written where the next hydrant (or other water sources) are located.

There are 181 blogs participating the May theme day. Please check them out, too!
