Weekend Reflections

I just returned from a weekend in Paris and of course my weekend reflection-picture is of this city. The "Dome des Invalides" (home of Napoleon's ashes) reflected in a shop window across the street.

Macro Monday

My favorite flower!
One of the first to appear in Spring.
Leucojum vernum it is called in Latin. 
And I just learned that it is in the same botanical family as the Amaryllis.

A day at the zoo

A beautiful Spring day in Vienna. So a friend and I decided to spend it at the zoo. There are a lot of baby animals at the moment - monkeys, baby anacondas (18 of them!), a baby elephant and even a baby panda bear (about 7 months old). The Pandas were behind glass walls, therefore the quality of my picture is not the best but I have to show you this little cutie.

Spring is all around us

Humming to the tunes of "Love is all around us" by Wet Wet Wet.
Ups! Some of you will not know this song anymore. Speaking of age.
Spring is really all around us and every day I find new flowers and buds. They seem to adore the sun as much as I do.

It must be Spring when ...

... we take our first trip of the year to Wachau. Wachau is a pittoresque part of the Danube valley, warm and well known for its wine. And as the climate is a little bit warmer than in the rest of the country our first Sunday trip in Spring usually takes us there. Yesterday was the day! Beautiful weather, sunny, warm - one could only be happy. Husband and dog took the 2 hours-hike, I staid behing taking pictures and sketching.

The sun on the Danube was glistening and Felix decided that it was warm enough to take a bath in the river.

And one - and really only one - tree was already blooming. An almond tree with beautiful flowers.
