By the time
I reached Pötzleinsdorfer Schlosspark,
a mere ten minutes from the first picture location,
the sky was dark.

A few hours later,
blue skies,
reflected in our apartment building's
Secret Garden pond.

Evening Shadows
Yes, the grass is greener
in my neighbour's garden!

Blue skies
left me leaning sideways

Evening Show
to take us into that sweet night!

A click of the mouse
and each of these images
will carry you further along!

  7. Very pretty - but isn't it meant to be spring?
    Snowflakes in Ny this morning too but not sticking.
    Happy weekend.

  9. Lovely,lovely, lovely. I thought I had signed up as a follower already, but no. So, here I am, officially and humbly asking to be a groupie. Vieenese pastry, a good cup of dark roast, good conversation will be plenty for me. I've never been to Vienna.

  14. It is so amazing how one can be in winter one moment and spring the next. It is like that where I live as well. Lovely winter images and your sky shots and reflections I enjoy as well.

    the reflections of the Secret Garden Pond remind me of Monet - peaceful and mystrious at the same time!

  18. I don't like "weather games"!
    We had them today in Paris.
    Grrrr
    Started out grey, damp and chilly.
    Then got greyer, damper and chillier.
    Then got sunny and warmish around 4ish!?
    Grrrrr
    No snow thanks gawd so I shouldn't complain I guess...
