253. At the edge of the forest : the railway crossing.
The autumn is going to an end. The trees are becoming yellow and red. This is the crossing from the railway with the train Paris-Maubeuge (old line of Paris-Amsterdam and Paris-Köln- Berlin-Moscow) with the road coming out of the forest of Mormal from about which I wrote this last days, and going to Landrecies, another town of the Avesnois.

252. Crèmerie or Milk shop on wheels.
In Hachette a little village which is on the South-East Side of the forest as shown below, you can see a railway bareer passage with the old barreer-guard house (there lives a man who had to pull the barreers up and down, but now it is all automatic) and before it, I had the chance to see this car of a milk shop on wheels. With its funny drawing of a cow. The dark traces on the truck the shadow of a sapin.
The links on the translations into german and french will be updated later.

251. Some highlights in the South East of the Forest.
I photographed this map on the sign-board here or there. On the South-East of the Forest, the river Sambre is flowing next along the edge of it. And also the railway - it was not a long time ago 10 years ago, before the TGV (high speed train) goes through Lille- on an important line between Paris and Bruxelles.

250. The whole forest.
Another view of this sign-board where you can see a map of the whole forest of Mormal. Other view of the forest of Mormal in autumn can be seen in this archive of November 2006.
The bigger town on the East side (right side) of the forest is Aulnoye-Aymeries, with in the North of it, Pont-sur-Sambre.

249. Gingko Biloba.
As germanist (one who studied german literature, language and history), I must say there are three emblem trees in Germany, the "Lindenbaum" on each place of a village, and sung by Schubert, the nut tree, sung by Schumann and the sapin sung at Christmas. But there is another ! And this one is in the forest of Mormal. The Gingko Biloba, sung by Goethe in his West-East Divan is to find in a few pieces in the Forest of Mormal. There are four or five of these trees which were planted in the tree park (arboretum) of the David's Pool.

248. How to find you way in the forest.
Here you can see a little nearer the map of the forest of Mormal. Such information boards are overall in the woud and I take this one near the entrance of the forest in Hachette, at the edge of the forest on which the Sambre flows and also the railway line Paris Brussels which you can see also on my pictures of Aulnoye I published two weeks ago. I shall show to you later some other photos of this forest especially of its highlights. This photo was made in the place named Hachette.

247. The biggest forest of the North in autumn clothes.
I have spoken often to you of the biggest forest of the North (I mean with the North the department of the "Nord" in France). I have said it lays in the West of Pont-sur-Sambre and at the East of Le Quesnoy a town from where I have already show to you some pictures. There are several "first times" this week, a photo of Avesnes, but not one of the bests, only the road, and now I'm showing to you for the first time the forest of Mormal. We went often to the South of this forest with the bicycle as we were young married, because we did live southly from Le Quesnoy, and we went often there as we lived during a long time in Berlaimont, at the East of the forest. Then, we could go to feet to the forest. But here it is not far, but there is no foot path but a road to go to the forest so that we do not go so often there. As we went to the forest so that I shot the photos, there were many roads which I didn't remember very well especially in the South part of the forest where I was not since one or two decades. This forest is big and there is no many leisure places. The biggest leisure activities are the hunt (but I do not like it), the riding of horses (but we are too old) and the walking (something for us). But you cannot walk during the hunt time so that the most part of the forest is closed for walkers in autumn and winter, and only a little part westly of it is good for walkers only on Saturdays and Sundays and on feast days. If you go to the rest of the forest, you have to stay on the main roads (car roads), if not you can be shoted not by a photograph, but by a hunter. There are many hunt accidents in France. You can see the parts of the forest which are closed or not at the bareers like the one you see here on the right which is opened. The sign board on the left is an information table with a map of the forest. The highlights of the forest are : several inns, this photo is made at the crossroad in front of the "Auberge du Croisil" or "Inn of the Croisil". There are also the inns of the" Coucou", of the "Godelot". The three are gastronomic restaurants. And the "Auberge du Roi du Bois", or "Inn of the King of the Wood", is a center for the study of nature, animals and birds. Two other highlights are the Etang David (David's Pool), a little pool which has some banks for picnic , and the Arboretum de l'Etang David (David's Pool tree park). This one are in the south of the forest and we went often here as we lives on the other side of the forest.

246. Every day road (2) : Through Sains du Nord.
Another part of my every day road is when I'm crossing the town of Sains-du-Nord. It from the sides of this roads that I have photographed for you already some beautiful landscapes. The track on the right is for parking the cars, so that It's easy to take photos at the sides of the road.

245. Everyday road (1) : Through Avesnes-sur-Helpe.
My road goes every day through the town of Avesnes-sur-Helpe. I didn't publish photos of Avesnes-sur-Helpe until this day, although it is the capital town of the Avesnois and a town where I worked during 10 years at teacher in the main secundary school with also classes of superior teaching level. You can see here how the evening sky is getting rosa near the horizon. In a week or two at the same time (about 5 in the evening) it shall be dark. You can guess on the right side in the landscape the church tower of the old collegiale church of the 12th century.

I have made this blog to let know my country (the little region 30 km X 40 km) and not for me. And so that the people of the country can find how was their country in a few decades.

Libellés : Why this blog ?
243. View on Trieux.
I took this picture near my work place during the lunch pause. You can see behind this pretty garden also the town district of Trieux in Fourmies. Fourmies where I am working just now, and my husband too, is 35 km in the South East of Pont-sur-Sambre.

242. Berries for birds in winter.
Now it is time for the birds to think at their feed for the winter, because in one months there shall be no more much to eat on the earth. These wild rose fruits are the best for them. People especially must think that they les bird beers on the bushes and trees, so that these little creature get to eat in winter in our gardens. I made this photo in Pont-sur-Sambre.

240. Landscape in Sains-du-Nord.
Also on my every day road to the college, I have to look at such landscape. Here is the country land all green. You can see here some cows in the far. And the decorative "fields flowers" at the edge of the Main Road of Sains-du-Nord.

238. Panorama on Trieux.
This picture was made on a side street leading to the car entrance of my college (secundary school where I teach). The college is built on a hill over the Helpe mineure which flows though Fourmies on the North edge of the valley. Trieux, the town district of Fourmies whose church one can see on the picture is also on the hills of the North edge on Fourmies. It is a worker's town district. In the town district of Trieux, there is another college. The electric wires are those of the railway which is passing near the college, so that like cows do also, we can look at the trains. The railway is here on the same high like the college and goes thereafter over a big bridge which pass the Helpe Valley (the Helpe Mineure is there in the underground of the town) and one of the largest street of the town.

237. Autumn ambiance in Pont.
In Pont (bridge) although it's going to be colder, the trees are not already red in cause of the mildness of the two last monthes. And our old tower as not to dessapear ! But the autumn leaves on the right have to desappear !

236. Theme day : Something that is to desappear soon.
I've already made it a few days ago :

So to-day I shall make something else.

You can find the links on the other things that have to desappear in the world in this message of Robert's blog of Oshawa, Canada. Link here. It's there I discovered the theme of the day !
