Vienna in Spring
Morning with Maxie

"I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendoes,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after." *

Some mornings
even the coffee cup
refuses to sit up straight.

"Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird"

  1. Is there anything like a blackbird chorus on a May mornings.
    So eine Vogelserenade haut selbst den Kaffee um!

    1. Stimmt, Arija! :-) xxx
      There's a chorus of Blackbirds every morning in front of my bedroom window!

  2. Dear friends,
    I am trying to put a FB link that works, but somehow I seem unable to do so.
    Would you be so kind as to try to click on the link-picture on the upper right hand column and let me know if it works for you?
    Thank you in advance,

  3. On other news:
    Spammer love to have coffee in Florence these days (I noticed because that old post was all of a sudden appearing in the "Favorite Posts" line-up. I took the post back into draft for a couple of days, but as soon as I put it back up this morning, the Spammers were back, drinking coffee in Florence. The heuristics behind it ..... ;-)

  4. The blackbird whistling
    Or just after


    I tried your facebook link, but it is not working for me. I don´t think we are friends on FB, are we? What is your name there?

  5. Gorgeous. I want to fall into a few of these.

  6. Thank you for your recent comment.
    I had no problems getting into your FB link.
    The best way I have found of almost eliminating Spam is by changing the Settings on Posts and Comments to 'Registered User' rather than 'anyone'.

  7. Lovely captures of your wonderful, green world, Merisi! I do wish I had a cup of that coffee to get my day off to a tasty start!! Hope you have great week! Enjoy!

  8. They are all great shots and, for me, seeing those cubes of sugar wrapped like that really does take me back to my youth. I haven't seen that for years :).


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
