  • Bloom of the scilla blossoms in the gardens of the Castle of the Teutonic Knights, Ellingen, Franconia (Bavaria) Some background information: Scilla is a genus of about 50 to 80 bulb-forming perennial herbs in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Scilloideae. It is native to woodlands, subalpine meadows, and seashores throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle-East. A few species are also naturalized in Australia, New Zealand and North America. Their flowers are usually blue, but white, pink, and purple types are known too. Most flower in early spring, however, a few are autumn-flowering. The precise number of Scilla species in the genus depends on which proposals to split the genus are accepted. The relationship of Scilla resp. squills to the closely related genus Chionodoxa is often discussed. Other proposals separate particularly the Eurasian species into a number of smaller genera. Several African species previously classified in Scilla have been removed to the genus Ledebouria. The best known of these is the common houseplant still sometimes known as Scilla violacea but now properly Ledebouria socialis. The foliage consists of narrow strap-like stems usually no more than a few inches tall with the flower stalks rising anywhere from four to 12 inches depending on the variety. The pedicels are most often upright, but sometimes bent or nodding on their top end. The pedals consist of six homogenuous leaves, while the ovary is spherical or in the shape of an egg bottom up. All parts of the plant are toxic if ingested. On this picture you can see a carpet of Scilla bifolia (also known as "alpine squill" or "two-leaf squill"). Scilla bifolia grows from a bulb 1 to 2 cm across. There are two or rarely three lance-shaped, curved, fleshy and shiny leaves. The bases of the leaves clasp up to about the half of the stem. The flowering stems are erect as well as unbranched and 10 to 20 cm high. The raceme bears 6 to 10 flowers, each 1 cm across. The flowers of Scilla bifolia are upward-facing, unlike the nodding flowers of Scilla siberica (resp. "Siberian squill"). They bloom from early to late spring and therefore belong to the early season wildflowers. The six tepals are deep violet-blue, while the fruit is a capsule 6 to 8 mm across. As Scilla bifolia can be grown by gardeners quite easily, it has already gained the British Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. The Castle of the Teutoniic Knights in Ellingen already dates back to the beginning of the 13th century. In 1216 the famous order of the Teutonic Knights made the little town of Ellingen one of their residences and built a castle there. In the Renaissance period the castle was rebuilt and again it was rebuilt in the Baroque period. Today’s castle grounds date back on the reconstruction of 1711 to 1721. In the course of the centuries and periods the different commanders of the Teutonic Knights controlled the bailiwick Franconia from Ellingen. In the course of the secularization in 1809 the Teutonic Knights lost their remaining possessions in Germany. In 1815 the Bavarian king Maximilian I Joseph presented his field marshal prince Carl Philipp von Wrede with the castle to appreciate his military merits. In 1939 the family von Wrede sold the castle to the Free State of Bavaria, that is still in possession of it today. Nowadays the castle is open to the public. Guided tours through the interiors can be booked.

  • Brahma chicken near the outbuildings of the Castle of the Teutonic Knights, Ellingen, Franconia (Bavaria) Some background information: The Brahma is a large breed of chicken developed in the United States from very large birds imported from the Chinese port of Shanghai. The Brahma was the principal meat breed in the US from the 1850s until about 1930. There has been considerable controversy over the origin of the Brahma. It appears to have developed in the United States from birds imported from the Chinese port of Shanghai, which were thus known as "Shanghai" birds. Limited cross-breeding with Chittagong chickens from Bangladesh is likely what gave the Brahma the distinctive characteristics of head shape and the pea comb that distinguish it from the Cochin (another breed that derives from the "Shanghai" birds and the one, the Brahma can easily be mistaken for). Brahmas were first exported to England in December 1852, when George Burnham sent nine "Gray Shanghaes" to Queen Victoria as a gift. The Dark Brahma variety was developed by English breeders from this stock, and later re-exported to the United States. Both the light and the dark (pencilled) Brahma were included in the first British Poultry Standard, published by the original Poultry Club of Great Britain in 1865. Some years later the Brahmas also came into fashion in German pedigree poultry farming. The Brahma was the principal meat breed in the US from the 1850s until about 1930. Some birds were very large and weights of about 8 kg for cocks and 6 kg for hens were recorded. However, weight averages about 5.5 kg for cocks and 4.5 kg for hens. Brahmas are good winter layers of large brown eggs, which weigh approximately 55 to 60 g. This breed of hens has a rather calm character. The Brahmas are usually both diffident and confiding at the same time. But they are also very sensitive to great commotion. If becoming too upset they can easily get a heart attack. In that case they fall over for no apparent reason and are immediately dead. The Castle of the Teutoniic Knights in Ellingen already dates back to the beginning of the 13th century.
