Morning in the City
Alpine Gardens at the Belvedere

full of promise rise

out of the greys of dawn
retreating fast

The Amsel
Sings me something well

Of sweet secrets
that the new day will reveal.

The image of the first picture
is of roses at the feet of a statue
at the southern side stair landing of the
Upper Belvedere Palace,
photographed in the early morning light.
All other images were
taken in the Belvedere's Alpine Garden.
3rd District


  1. The first image of the statue disappearing into sky is just magical!

  2. Karen,
    the statue is near the stair landing inside the building, the sky and trees are a reflection. The Belvedere palace and its garden are full of magic every hour of the day, but early mornings are even more so.
