The Return of the Trojan Horse
Spring Trimming in Schönbrunn

Looking Up
Naiad Fountain or Round Pool
at the Rondeau where some of the tree-lined diagonal avenues
of Schönbrunn palace's magnificent gardens meet

Is Naiad, the beautiful water nymph, wondering whether
the Trojan Horse has somehow traveled through time?

  1. This is amazing! I've never seen such a thing. Thanks, Merisi!

  2. I always wondered how they maintained that tidy look.

  3. Merisi, I laughed at the kissing Mozart in your prior post. Yes, who would have believed this without a photograph?

    The rolling Trojan Horses you show us today are quite remarkable; they certainly do contribute to perfect trims. Now I am wondering whey they are stabled when not on the job, and how they are transported to those stables.


  4. Looking Up statue looks so natural and dynamic. Wonderful perspective with mobile wooden scaffoldings.

  5. Those wooden scaffoldings remind me of medieval siege towers. I love that first shot!

  6. Beautiful pics.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
