Midsummer Evening
At Prince Eugene's Belvedere


Midsummer Sunset
The day went out in a soft yellow glow


Fragrance of tilia blossoms
filled the mellow evening air


Blue Reader
Sanctuary in the dappled shelter of young linden trees

    1. Sphinxes were quite common again in baroque parks, and there are about a dozen in the Belvedere gardens.

  5. Beautiful looking statue and nice scenery. I like the woman on the bench who seems to be knitting or reading.
