Come inside a new world.


Thank you for your favourites. :O)

Looking up at the Cherry blossom in the church garden.


Thank you for your favourites. :O)

While I was looking for some strangers yesterday I noticed that the Cherry blossom in the church garden was in full bloom.


This is what it looked like two weeks before.


Thank you for your favourites. :O)

This was in one of the flower tubs in the church grounds / gardens. It was at such a delightful height with just enough light to get in really close to the inside.


Better viewed large and thank you for your favourites. :O)

Another one from the archives, photographed when I visited Cornwall in September. This is possibly the most visited churchyard in England, and certainly the most beautiful. The Church of St Just sits in a sub-tropical garden on the edge of a creek off the River Fal, on the Roseland Peninsula. St Mawes is the nearest town. The church is regarded as one of England's thousand best by Simon Jenkins. It dates from the 13th century but has a 6th century Celtic heritage. Legend says that Joseph of Arimathea may have brought Jesus ashore here.

The garden at the back of the North End Church, Boston

well, at least as far as its really quite unusual garden. Its 5' from where we are but I like the fact that it appears informal almost 'wild' in places.

Taken in the church garden as I was leaving the Sunday morning service yesterday...


It is a miscanthus grass variety, growing 7-8 feet tall. Just lovely next to the church building.

In 1031 was in the former village of Brunswik consecrated the St. Magni-church and assumed her 16 little places in the vicinity, among them Bienrode.

The tower of the church is most likely the oldest building in the village and probably dated from the time before the 1000th century. It belonged to the outer fortification of the later city of Brunswick.

It can be assumed, that the oldest church or chapel already in the 12th century might have arisen.

The name "The Holy Trinity" was given to the Church in 1957 by decision of the National Church Office Wolfenbüttel.

In the years 1972-1974, the interior was redesigned. Today, the church applies as a little jewel at Bienrode, in the northwest of Brunswick.


Im Jahre 1031 wurde in dem damaligen Dorfe Brunswik die St.-Magnis-Kirch geweiht und ihr 16 kleine Orte in der näheren Umgebung unterstellt, unter ihnen auch Bienrode.

Der Turm der Kirche ist wohl das älteste Bauwerk des Dorfes und stammt wahrscheinlich aus der Zeit vor 1000. Er gehörte zur Außenbefestigung der späteren Stadt Braunschweig. Es ist anzunehmen, dass das älteste Kirchlein oder Kapelle bereits im 12. Jahrhundert entstanden sein mag. Über die Schutzheiligen schweigen sich die Urkunden fast aus. Um 1500 wird einmal der Name "St. Margarethen" erwähnt, scheint aber in der Reformationszeit wieder in Vergessenheit geraten zu sein. Den Namen "Zur Heiligen Dreifaltigkeit" trägt die Kirche erst seit 1957 auf Beschluss des Landeskirchenamtes Wolfenbüttel nach einem Vorschlag des damaligen Kirchenvorstandes.

In den Jahren 1972-1974 wurde das Kircheninnere neu gestaltet. Heute präsentiert sich die Kirche als ein kleines Schmuckstück in den Schunterwiesen, im Nordwesten Braunschweigs.

Burdekin plum tree

Pleiogynium timorense.

Australian native tree from North Queensland.


Before I've found ID for this tree, I called it "Muffin-nut tree", because of the funny shape of these seeds (endocarp).

So, look for old seeds underneath the tree - there could be plenty of fruit remains - the hard endocarp, that surrounds the seeds. Someone says, the endocarps look like little UFOs with portholes in the side! I reckon they are muffin shaped.


The ripe fruit are dark purple, edible and were popular with Aborigines, explorers and settlers. But I would agree with Joseph Banks who collected samples in 1770, complained that the fruits of Burdekin plum were "so full of a large stone that eating them was but an unprofitable business".


Burdekin Plum is in the family Anacardiaceae, along with Mangoes and Cashew Nuts.
