Gold in Garden

Flowers in the garden at Kloster Buch in Saxony, Germany

Kloster Buch, Germany, August 2014

In the Middle Ages, monasteries had their own gardens, and I think there were not few the times when in periods of scarcity, the monks or the nuns had their meals assured. Even if today many of those monasteries are ruins and open for visitors, like the monastery in Buch, in Saxony, the administrators of the place still keep and cultivate such gardens, where they grow vegetables, flowers, herbs and fruit-trees.
