The Baroque Garden Pavilion of Melk Abbey
Viennese Escapes - Lower Austria


In the late afternoon
the sun finally broke through,


revealing a sky so beautiful
Tiepolo could have painted it


The leaves of the Linden trees and the rose bushes
sparkled in the late afternoon light


The Garden Pavilion's mullioned doors
were wide open, beckoning to come inside

Melk Abbey, an hour's drive west of Vienna
Lower Austria
