A winter vacation with summerly temperatures

It's amazing how fast two weeks go by!
We were so sad when we had to leave the Nile and the Red Sea and
say goodbye to Egypt with its pleasantly warm winter temperatures.

We had a lot of fun, swimming in the Red Sea and sunbathing under palm trees, and riding camels in the desert,
while good old Vienna was covered with snow.

The cruise on the Nile was special!
And we were totally overwhelmed by the majesty of the old Pharaonic temples.

Autumn roses and more

Today we walked through Vienna
which is pleasantly deserted on a typical late Autumn Sunday morning like this,
and with a wonderful a gray layer of fog high above.

Of course we visited the Rosegarden in Voksgarten,
and I took some nice pictures of the last autumn roses.

Many rosebushes were already prepared for the winter season with branches cut,
but not yet wrapped up in their warm winter bags.

Oh, the fountain, dark and cool,
and some rose heads drifting on the dark surface.

And my favourite rose, still blooming nice and bright!

What did hubby see outside the garden?

*lol* Some more flowers!

This could be Vienna's most whimsically decorated construction site :)

Look for flowers from all around our good old globe below:

An afternoon walk through Vienna

Nach dem Essen sollst du ruhn, oder 1000 Schritte tun!
After dinner rest a while, after supper walk a mile!

That's what hubby, doggy and I did this afternoon,
and we came to some stiller corners of the city.

That's my entry for this week's:
