for a thirsty soul

Echtes Wiener Schnitzel

  1. Lovely. I especially like the second pic down.

  2. Oh, I remember this one -- that green lattice and the blue lobelia on the yellow background are wonderful!

  3. Amelia,
    exactly what it seems right now: the weather is such that the illusion of summer never ending comes easy. ;-)

    Charles Gramlich,
    a beautiful moment, just before one steps down in the cool shade of the courtyard.

    Vicki Lane,
    I remember the moment when I reached for my camera and shot this image.

  4. Nice weather, pretty surroundings, flowers, good food, good wine...what else could a person want. Lovely.

  5. This endless summer is a dream for me now, in heavily rained-in London, and just what I need to see! And yesterday's poppies - stunning pictures, every one.

  6. endless summer-good title!

  7. Dearest Merisi...I've missed you, your pictures and your coffee. XX

  8. My Blue Lobelia never came up this season, hmmm wonder if it took a boat to visit you;) The Viennese breaded veal cutlet looks fab, as does the drink, both the hot and the cold. Have a beauty of a weekend~

  9. Thank you all for your kind comments!

    A wonderful weekend to all of you,

    Lovely light in these photos.
    Very calming.

  11. Oh YUM
    Gspritzer looks like tart cherry soda to me...YUM YUM
    With hot chockie to follow
    Does it get any better than this?
    I think not :)

  12. I love the delicate pink roses (am planning an area in my garden for just one kind of pink rose) and I love the green window frame.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
