Tulips and Gelber Muskateller wine
Lost in thought, reflecting on
the music listened to earlier,
Anton Bruckner's Eighth Symphony,
peformed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra,
with Christian Thielemann conducting,
at the dress rehearsal in the Goldener Musikvereinssaal.

Tonight, they are performing at
the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris.


  1. those TULIPS!!!!
    I bet they are straight from HOLLAND!?

  2. Why not ask them? (
    The flowers there have caught my eye ever since I first walked by that place (there are several candid shots on my blog, without divulging the location, though). They even have flowers in their kitchen, white calla lillies, single stems in various vases, at the moment. I am smitten every time I walk by, and wonder who puts them there.

  3. Oh what a beautiful evening! Thank you for sharing it with us.

  4. My pleasure, Cherry!
    You should think about visiting Vienna during late Spring, it's an entirely different city from the Christmassy one. :-) Austrian Airlines offers 99 Euro deals. ;-)

  5. Lovely, beautiful photos.
    I live in the undisputed Tulip-City of Canada. Each year we host the Tulip Festival.
    All of your photos make the viewer wish they were there!
