Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt train station. Whenever you see a large group of younger and older children there, chances are very high that they visited the Wilhelma, a combination of zoological and botanical garden.
It's even easier to tell when some of them carry feathers from the long train of male peacocks. When we still had peacocks at our local zoo, we collected those feathers that fell out, they were not plucked.
Feathers have been a topic in fashion for a long time. You know us humans, we can never get enough and we don't deal well with limited resources.
Maybe that's one reason why I like the feathers from this week's Jewelry Artisans Community Oldies but Goodies Challenge better, they didn't harm any birds.
