first snow

We’ve enjoyed the first snow of the season in residential Munich and my boys couldn’t be more excited! I’m less enthusiastic although I enjoy its beauty from the inside looking out.

Here’s our backyard before the boys shoveled the snow into big piles to create their snow forts.

In this image (also taken from inside) you can get a glimpse on how most of the residential properties are all designed in grid patterns; straight, angular lines in hedges, borders and terraces. More on this subject later.


Almost all homes here are painted white, creating almost black and white imagery when the snow falls.
