Dear friends! It's already Midsummer so I thought it's time for a new thread. Let's hope the rest of this Summer will bring us pleasant temperatures instead of the extreme heat or awful storms!

Dear friends! The Spring is turning into Summer. Our Knugarden looks very inviting so I welocme you all for a drink and/or a snack by the pool. Maybe I should announce a little warning - there's a chance you'll get very wet if Uncle Sergej and Raspi decide to dive ..... :D

Dear friends! We can soon wave goodbye to Old Man Winter although some of us never met him. Let's enjoy the last of the 'Glühwein' before we want cold drinks! :D

Dear friends! So much has happened on the stage of the Knutitours during it's existance. Ten years is a long time although sometimes I feel it was only yesterday the journey started. It's time to remember .... and it's time to look forward!

Dear friends! Some of you have had more than your fair share of snow while many of us are still waiting for the white flakes to fall. Let's hope we can all have a touch of frost before the Spring is here!

Dear friends! This is my favourite season of the year and I hope you will enjoy the Christmas trees, candles and snow flakes, too, even if the snow in many cases is only virtual.

Dear friends! September was a month with many sad news. Let's hope October will be filled with good and happy news! We also had lots of technical problems with our Knuipe. Hopefully this thread will work fine!

Although it was difficult to feel inspired I've made a new story for you:

Dear friends! I know many of you think the Summer was again far too short but, please, don't forget that the Fall has it's charm, too! For me it's the time of 'revival' and inspiration. Let's make the best of this wonderful season!

Dear friends! Although August is a Summer month we can soon see signs of the approaching Autumn. Now the berries are ripe to be picked and the fruit trees offer us goodies filled with vitamines. Even the moon looks special in August!

Dear friends! April has a foolish kind of weather and I strongly suspect June has been imitating April. :-) Well, let's BEAR in mind that a good Summer has all the ingredients: rain, thunder, sunshine, heat wave .... you name it!

Dear friends! It remains to be seen if the title of this thread will turn true .... This Winter has been unusually long in many parts of the world but let's hope May will bring the warm weather and make the gardens and woods flourish! I've made a little story for you, too:

Dear friends! It's Spring now although it doesn't look the same everywhere. We can for example compare photos from Berlin and Ranua and see the big difference. No matter what kind of Spring you're having - it's again Easter! Of course, I have made a little story for this thread.

March - the month giving us mixed feelings

Dear friends! March has become a month of night mares but it also offers some happy moments. We're sad thinking of the loss of two lovely polar bears - Knut and Fritz. However, at the same time we can also be happy about the baby bears that have now come out with their mothers in many zoos. We just have to learn to walk hand in hand with our sadness and our happiness!

Dear friends! It's time again to wave our paws - goodbye year 2016, welcome 2017!

I want to thank you all for the year that's gone and I hope you'll be here with me even next yer! Lots of things happened during the year and I made a short summary with a couple of flashbacks.
