In the Midst of Winter
Christmastime in Vienna

On a dark grey morning,
the terrace of a Stadtpark restaurant

A coachman, bundled up as if Siberia
had moved south, overnight

The Saturday before Christmas Eve,
a Christmas tree lot at Graben Square

Taking a break
from grey skies with Viennese Coffee Mélange
and a festively decorated miniature Sachertorte

  1. It does look cold but beautiful, Merisi!! Great captures for the day! I do hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you a very Happy New Year!! May it be 12 months filled with fun and all the good things!

  2. Oh that little chocolate treat looks so yummy. I feel like I could just pluck it from the page and enjoy.

    I hope you had a lovely Christmas and I wish you and yours the very best for the New Year.

  3. Each photo a beautiful postcard! I think I like the coffee one the best today.

  4. It does look chilly.....but beautiful too!
    Wishing you a happy new year, dear Merisi

  7. I don't bundle up if I'm just going out in the cold, but if I'm going to be there a while I do. like that carriage guy

  8. I love those red things in with the ornamental grass.
