reflected in the store window.
My first encounter with this innovative florist
was quite accidental.
I was driving through Lange Gasse
on a late November night,
when I noticed
an upside down Christmas tree
in their store window.
The creativity displayed in those windows
has drawn me back there again and again.
The house reflected in the shop window
of a flower shop on Josefstädter Strasse
was the birthplace and family home of
Nobel Laureate Karl von Frisch (1886 - 1982),
who pioneered studies in bee communication and foraging.
Swiss poet Gottfried Keller spent
"the happiest days" of his life there in 1874 ,
as guest of von Frisch's mother, Marie von Frisch.

It is gloomy where I am! I need to see beauty to brighten my day.ReplyDelete
That white rose is a beauty.
The windows you show, Merisi, all have a unique history behind them. Thank you for enlightening us.ReplyDelete
