October 19, 2010. When I think of Kandern, this little scene comes to mind. The Blumenplatz is the center of town, around which everything revolves. Here is where the pottery market and the festival of booths is every fall, the open air evening Christmas activities, the New Year's fireworks show, the carnival parade, and pretty much anything of significance. The grape vine above the flower shop there is changing colors now, and this week brought our first few snowflakes.
