Waterlillies in Munich





"When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other." 
Chinese Proverb
Impressions from a lovely afternoon in Munich, spent with my little niece Emma, who was wearing her pink tutu! We visited the botanical garden, which is so romantic and beautiful! We loved the waterlillies best and i thought of Claude Monet paintings, since the pond looked like a painting itself!
Have you got anything planned for the weekend yet?

  12. MARTINA MY SWEET! Oh, talk about being busy! I bet you are so full of deadlines and work, but let's make this a FALL to remember my friend. We just came in from a walk and it was delightful. There was a mist of rain, I could smell fireplaces going, but yet there are still gardens alive with color. Tuesday is my big day. THINK OF ME!!! Anita
