I just looked at the weather forecast for the next week, and it looks like rain nearly every day. *Sigh*
That makes me extremely happy to be able to go back through pictures like this one, which was taken on a gorgeously fading fall afternoon, as BV and I wandered the sprawling grounds of the Sanssouci palace, not far from Berlin. Whatever you may think about royalty (past or present), those people knew how to do a garden. Like many other palaces, Sanssouci was mostly for pleasure, which means endless pathways, fountains galore, oddly ornate little outbuildings, and tree-lined allées. And swans. Don’t forget the swans.
