When Evening Falls in Vienna


Shadowplay
Wattmanngasse

Acacia Trees
Lining Wattmanngasse
in Vienna's 13th District
Hietzing

Blühende Lindenbäume
Lime trees in bloom
Gloriettegasse

Blue Wisteria
Late to the party,
feasting on the last moments
of unstintingly lavish evening light
Wattmanngasse

A Summer Rose
In the shade,
twilight near

One Last Caress
before Blue Hour
seizes the cepter
from the Golden one
Gloriettegasse

  3. Those yellow trees at top look like some things we have growing around here. I wonder if they are a related species.

  4. Thank you all! :-)

    Charles Gramlich,
    I tried to figure out what kind of trees these are, I thought of blackwood, but not quite.

  7. Our wisteria has also sent out a few late flowerings.

    LOVE the golden light and dread the waning of the long days . . . although I don't think I've had an unbroken night's sleep since May.

    I admire your ability to know and name all of the trees.

  14. L'heure bleu, yes! With that special quality of light--intense as it begins to deepen...
