Have a happy new week !

Gosh, it seems only yesterday you were a new blogger.
I hope you bought yourself the pretty bouquet in the top picture!
If you don't want it, send it to me.

Hi Maria :)

Amazing photo of flowers matching the mood of the rainy climate. I am astonished to see in Vienna flowers also change colors according to weather.Or as a photographer you thought it would be appropriate to take a snap shot of light colored flowers. Or you unknowingly took this photo reflecting your mood. What ever it is, the photo of the flowers is charming.

So many Fiaka's waiting for people. Will the horses make a mess of the road? What about the coachmen? Are they OK? Any way please be careful if you are taking a ride.

My hearty congratulations for your 2ooth post. You are a true ambassador of Vienna. Your photos and narrations speak volumes for the marvelous job you are doing. We got to know about Vienna sitting in the cool comfort of our home.

Many, many thanks.

Wish you all happiness :)


Congratulations! I hope you bought the lovely bouquet to yourself! You deserve them!
.....waiting for 200 more postings!

Maria, you never seem to run out of beautiful flowers. Where do you find these? Looks like a cold damp day to take a carriage ride. Have a great weekend. Keep smiling!

Donna said...

Congratulations on your 200th post! WOW! I hope to get that milestone sometime in the next few months.

I love the flower pictures. You are so lucky to have vendors with fresh flowers. I think I would be buying a bouquet every week, LOL. I love the old horse carriages too. I love to ride in them at the various cities that we visit and have them available. I sure hope to get to Vienna someday!

Maria said...

Hallo Elizabeth!
Thank you for your congratulations! You are one of the first bloggers I got to know and I remember how I loved your Marrakesh blog!

Hi Joseph,
Yes, the flowers correspond with the mood of the rainy day :) I think they correspond with my mood! Thank you very much for your lovely comments, Joseph!

Hallo Valkyrien,
thank you for your kind words, I'm happy to meet you in Blogworld ;)

Hallo Ces,
thanks for yout visit! I find all the flowers when I walk my dog. There are some really exquisite flowershops with very creative ideas.

Hallo Donna,

If I had those beautiful flowers in my house (not an easy thing where I live and darn expensive) I wouldn’t mind having rainy Sundays:)) Congrats to all the posts – I think I never arrive there - sigh!
