For many years, at great cost, I traveled through many countries, saw the high mountains, the oceans. The only things I did not see were the sparkling dewdrops in the grass just outside my door.

Someone asked about "Marktplatz"... I apologize for assuming that everyone KNOWS all about Fredericksburg! LOL So, here's what I wrote... I want to share it with you!
Marktplatz is our little park in the middle of town. It divides the "West Main Historic Shopping District" from the "East Main Historic Shopping District" (the magic mile). It is a lovely place to BE! The BEAUTIFUL GARDENS, here just keep blooming from EARLY SPRING, until first frost... and, beyond! Many heirlooms have lived in these gardens since they were first planted many years ago! I LOVE to share this TREASURE with all of you... it IS a GIFT made by many hands! Visit the Vereins Kirche Museum for a little Fredericksburg history, stroll through the gardens, take a picnic... enjoy the MIRACLES of nature in downtown Fredericksburg, Texas! CELEBRATE the BOUNTY of CREATION!
