  2. I always enjoy the beautiful architecture that you share, but I adore that little wooden fence with the Snapdragons! I am realizing that I have not seen any Snaps in any gardens all year...hmm~

    1. Mary, that little fenced garden with the snapdragons is right behind the Rudbeckia you see in the last picture, in that little park at the back of the Secession pavilion.

  3. Beautiful blues and whites. Love the vapour trail in the sky, the puffy clouds - and the white snapdragons.

  4. Love the fence with the snapdragons today. Making me long for a long walk outside - alas it is much too hot here just now...

    1. I have noticed more than once this sort of fence near Art Nouveau buildings. I wonder if there is any connection.

    1. I found an image of clouds looking almost like those in the picture here, which "The Cloudsman" (John A. Day, The Book of Clouds) describes as follows:
      "A Jiggly Jell-O sky with active convection in the layered cloud."

  8. The reflection of the sky blue in the windows in the first shot is beautiful.
    Like the wooden fence too, charming.

    1. More than once have I looked twice on similar window reflections, to make sure they are not some kind of blinds. ;-)

  9. Hello Merisi. Your Viennese "postcards" are always lovely. I'm so glad you keep this blog! Wanted to tell you that the Getty Museum here in LA is hosting a special exhibit of Gustav Klimt's drawings until September. I might try to get up there for that.

    1. Thank you, Sara!
      I think it is the same exhibition I saw here in Vienna, earlier in the year.

  11. The shot of Secession Building is beautifully framed with the bright green leaves of summer and punctuated by a contrail in that blue sky!

    Bises,

    1. I love a rainy day, or two, with a rainy night bedded in between. ;-)
      Somehow, it feels so luxurious being able to work inside while outside the rain keeps falling.

    2. Update, shortly before 5 PM:
      Sun's back, temperature at 25°C, streets and air washed clean.
