Where is the umlaut? "Wenn er mir jetzt auch nur verworren dient, So werd' ich ihn bald in die Klarheit führen. Weiß doch der Gärtner, wenn das Bäumchen grünt, Dass BLUT' und Frucht die künft'gen Jahre zieren." ~Goethe "Faust" Please look at the word in big letters. It means "Blüte", that is "flower", doesn't it? But why is there no umlaut? Thank you very much in advance!!! :)

Must be a printing error, it has to be »Blüt'«.

Blüte, more precisely, is actually blossom, not flower.

It should be "Umlaut". Are you reading Faust? Respekt!
