Things of Beauty

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

"Endymion" by John Keats

Beauties on a rainy evening,
found close to each other:
The first one in a waste basket on a side street between
St. Stephen's Cathedral und St. Peter's Church,
the next four at "Zum Schwarzen Kameel",
whose kitchen windows open to Naglergasse,
opposite "Martha Srna Modlitby",
where I found the tulips and the painting of a postman holding a love letter.



  1. Oh I love tulips. None here in Marrakech:-( I miss them...

  2. So true, really beautiful! and I love the umbrellas too!

  3. My Marrakech:
    Everywhere I went on that evening, I encountered tulips. Therefore, more images in store for you in future posts. ;-)
    Have you ever seen the movie "Les Parapluies de Cherbourg"? Ever since I have, I see umbrellas in a different light.

  4. Love all those tulips. And that rain makes it look like Seattle. :-)

    Thanks for the very lovely moon quotes. They are perfect.

  5. All your journal is about beauty.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
