Degerloch Maibaum (May-tree!)

We walked to the top of the hill this weekend, and ran into a gigantic maypole.

They say there are normally celebrations on the first day of May, to raise the maypole, but we somehow completely missed them. This isn’t too far away from our temporary apartment, so I’m not sure when the celebrations would have happened. It’s a pretty neat thing to see, though. I haven’t figured out what all those flags mean.

It kinda looks like they found a huge tree, and stripped all the branches south of the top 12 feet.
