When Lilacs bloom in April
Vienna in Springtime

Lilacs Everywhere
Looking up from Burggarten -
formerly the emperor's private garden -
seeing lilacs, the steeple of the Augustinian church,
and the roof of the palm house, built for Emperor and avid gardener Franz Joseph
in the early 1900s by Jugenstil architect Friedrich Ohman.
