Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

Bingen Convent, Germany

Bingen Convent, Germany

This photo was taken a few years ago when we visited Germany. In the foreground are the vineyards, which flourish along the Rhine. In the background is the Bingen convent, widely known because of Hildegard. Among other things, she was a composer, herbalist, and advisor to Europe’s aristocrats, including the pope. You can visit the other entries of the Weekly Photo Challenge here.

    Hildegard von Bingen was quite a character!

    Yes indeed! I think we could have learned much from her, had we met her.

    What a lovely wine yard – I love the deep green colour – and I think the house is the Escape ? – Anyhow I would love to hear more stories about that place.
    Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend 🙂

    Yes, Mariane, it is lovely place. Try a Google for Hildegard von Bingen, you should find some interesting reading.

  15. From one Lutheran to another, good morning. I like the slant of the vineyards as well as the contrast between the green and the grey.

    Blessings on your day,
