The Baroque Garden Pavilion of Melk Abbey
Viennese Escapes - Lower Austria

In the late afternoon
the sun finally broke through,

revealing a sky so beautiful
Tiepolo could have painted it

The leaves of the Linden trees and the rose bushes
sparkled in the late afternoon light

The Garden Pavilion's mullioned doors
were wide open, beckoning to come inside

Melk Abbey, an hour's drive west of Vienna

  9. You visit the most elegant, beautiful places. I can imagine a romantic novel taking place here. I'm back in India for four months after seven months in California helping take care of my lovely 15-month-old granddaughter.
