The many Shades of Green
Viennese Moments

The conservatory was built during the first years
of the 20th century, to plans by architect Friedrich Ohmann

  1. Palmenhaus Green would be a very lovely colour for a bedroom or even a kitchen or.. a garden shed.

  2. I do love the green in your world, Merisi! Delightful, wonderful captures as always! Hope you have a lovely weekend! Enjoy!

  3. Oh I love the greens of Europe! And your greens are taking me back!


    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your wonderful comment!

  4. Yes, please, tempt Spring with all this greenery, because she seems reluctant this year.

  5. Great details of your beautiful city!

  6. Merisi, at this time of the year, I guess that many of us have got green anticipation rolling round our heads.

    I so love all the shades of green that botany provides, and yet have a difficult time, in my artistic attempts via paint, colored pencils, or whatever else, to adopt green into my favored colorways. I wonder why that is so? Perhaps I just bow to nature's wise power?

    Meanwhile, let me tell you how beautiful this post's photos are, and how they made me consider green in a new way.


  7. Beautiful

  8. It's nice to see the colour of green all around Vienna, thank you for showing us this beauty.
