The Cherry Orchard
Spring in Vienna

"... everywhere I have been,
every minute, day and night,

my soul has been full
of mysterious anticipations.
I can hear the sound of its footsteps....

I feel the approach of happiness, Anya;
I see it coming ...

it is coming towards us,
nearer and nearer;

And if we do not see it,
if we do not know it,
what does it matter?
Others will see it."

Anton Chekhov's play
"The Cherry Orchard"


  1. How gorgeous your photogrpahs are! I love cherry blossoms and I don't have them where I live so I enjoyed your post so much. Thanks for the spring sights and I almost thought I could smell them as well :)

  2. I just love when the cherry blossoms start appearing. Your photos are gorgeous!

  3. Joyeux printemps chère Merisi.

  4. Valerie,
    thank you!
    I went to St. Marx cemetery on Sunday, to check on the cherry blossoms. They are not open yet, but soon, I am sure. ;-)

    thank you! :-)

    merci beaucoup! :-)

  5. Cherry blossoms!

    I haven't seen those in Paris...
    A Parisen friend just took off for Japan to catch them..
    He could have gone to Vienna & had less jetlag.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
