Sheep may safely graze
Viennese Escapes

Plum Orchard
I was looking out one of the windows of
the Schloss Hof Palace, when I spotted a sheep
grazing under the plum trees

--> Listen to Johann Sebastian Bach's Sheep may safely graze

--> Sheep may safely graze is sung by Pales, the Roman Goddess, protector of shepherds and flocks

  1. Every time I catch up with your blog I "OOH" and "AHHH" at your beautiful images. Thank you for posting them, they brighten up my day.

  2. «Louis» likes the allusion to the famous J.S. Bach piece in the title to this post, and he also thanks you for your visit to San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

  3. A beautiful pastoral scene from the window of what must be a magnificent building. Thank you for the link to the music.
    Also, thank you for your visit to my blog and for your comment.

  4. Charming as ever!
    Claudia LOVED Vienna, so I hope to visit with her before too very long!

  5. Oh, that shot of the plums!

  6. I love that sheep are actually becoming common sights around here these days. I do love their sweet faces and wooly heads...lovely photos as usual

  7. My mother and I have a running joke about "Sheep May Safely Graze" so this gave me a smile...

  8. I see the sheep prefers the shadows :-)

    We´ve had a cold summer and everything is very late here. I have just been out in the garden photographing the first red cheeries.

  9. Beautiful captures, wonderful composition and I do love the sheep! Great post for the day, Merisi, as always and, as always, a lovely way to begin my day!

  10. So, so lovely are those plums hanging from the trees! I want to reach out and pluck one. That is a lucky sheep grazing in such a pretty place. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comment. Your blog is beautiful and I am so happy that you led the way to me discovering you! xx

  11. I adore Sheep, I adore plums, ate 2 today and I adore your beautiful images...there I think I got everything covered;') Have a delightful week Merisi~

  12. Lovely images!! The plums look delicious!

  13. I would do anything to have a summer dress, made with a cotton print of your plum tree and blue sky.

  14. Oy. I've been sharing a lot of lamb recipes. So it's sweet to see the sheep grazing peacefully under the plum trees.
