  1. Merisi, the photographs in this post and in its predecessor are clearly gorgeous. Who would not want to see this garden and enter the Palm House, and have a break in that little building, too.

    May I also thank you for the E D poetry. It also took me to a faraway place and let me hover there for a while.


  2. The conservatory looks huge and has a beautifully-shaped roof. I would like to see the plants inside.

  3. A beautiful building. I like the peeking through the window photo.

    P.S. Those builders must have worked very fast if they built it between 1882 and 1882 ;-).

    1. Thank you, Zosia! I stand corrected. ;-)

  4. I like the conservatory best in winter, when the outside is covered whith snow and inside the flowers are blooming.

  5. What a delightful conservatory in the gardens of Schönbrunn palace! I love seeing palm trees in Vienna--I didn't know they could survive the cold winters.

  6. What a delightful conservatory in the gardens of Schönbrunn palace. I love seeing the palm trees. I didn't know they could survive such cold winters as you have there.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
