Palm Sunday, Freising, Germany

My flight from Tbilisi touched down at 6.  As I stepped out the shuttle at our airport hotel in Freising at 7 AM, after clearing customs and getting my bag, I heard the joyous “surround sound” peeling of church bells for Palm Sunday.  I took a nap then, but the peel repeated itself at 8, 9 and 10.  Suzi had gotten to Munich the night before.  After breakfast Suzi and I walked around Freising. Last year on Palm Sunday we were in Warsaw, Poland, and there was snow. Today was glorious spring with trees in flower and the forsythia almost finished. Instead of palms it’s forsythia and other spring blossoms that mark the celebration. The pictures here are of the Cathedral through blossoms, some Easter bread for sale, boughs over a doorway and the inside of Freising’s parish church, St. George.
