Today's Flowers # 88


My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time. 

Here are some more flowers I saw on my Europe trip. We were gathering to tour Mirabell Palace Garden in Salzburg, Austria. This little flowering tree begged for a photo. The wife and our new friends Mary and Dave are just behind the tree. The palace is right behind.

The hanging blooms were just beautiful on the tree.
This is the garden where part of "The Sound of Music" was filmed.
The gardens were not in full bloom but you can see some of the beauty to come.
I couldn't get Mrs. Fishing Guy to twirl but she did pose at the fountain where the childrens and Jule Andrews danced.
Visit a lot of neat sites to see above.

That's a very beautiful flowering tree. Perhaps you needed to sing in order to get Mrs. Fishing Guy to twirl around the fountain.

The blooms on that tree are gorgeous! I'm reliving my visits to Europe vicariously through you. I lived in Germany in the mid- to late-70s (I was in the Army) and returned as a tourist in 1982 and 1984. I have visited both of the cities, Venice and Salzburg, that you have blogged about so far. I would love to return to Europe one day!

By the way I noticed, too, that my photograph did not display for a moment. I suspect Flickr was experiencing a hiccup.

Outstanding photos, and I enjoyed seeing Mrs. FG. Looking forward to catching up on all your other European Vacation pics. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know about Linda's first entry. Fortunately I had already visited but always appreciate a head's up just in case.

I think Mrs. FG is a very good sport! The blossoms on the tree are awesome! I wonder what they are!

Lanny said...

What fun, to be at that fountain. I love torturing myself and family with the Sound of Music at least a couple of times a year! But that pink tree! Did it have a fragrance? It looks like perfume heaven!

Gaelyn said...

These flowering trees are gorgeous.
Why didn't you twirl by the fountain and let Mrs. Fishing Guy take the pic?

Ebie said...

The shot of the blooms hanging is beautiful! Wow, so nice to be in a place where one of my all time favorite movie was filmed!

It is a beautiful place!

Fishing guy I thoroughly enjoyed browsing through your Europeon vacation photos here and in previous posts! Ah yes the memories I have of Venicia! Those sunsets stay gorgeous and just the way I remember them! Hey nice to put a face to your name!
The new header image is a true "fishing guy's image"

Beautiful blossoms hanging off that tree. I believe I recognize your name as a follower of my sister's site "upnorthwithmel"?! am I right?

Carolyn Ford said...

What a beautiful place! I was in Salzburg so many years ago, in the summer. These trees are so pretty...lovely little flowers. And, how fun it is to see where movies were filmed. I also saw this fountain...way back then!

Randi said...

The pink blooms on the tree are gorgeous!
It is nice to see this lovely photo of your wife.

Nice to see mrs Tom, great shots.

Pretty flowers-pretty Mrs. Fishing Guy too : )

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great post of the flowers, Tom.... I think that the two of you needed to burst out in song while you were at the fountains!!!!!! Love that movie!!!

its me again ~I knew I saw your name somewhere, believe it or not the "dar" from "darsstuffings" is also my sister! and I'm not pulling your leg - lol

Judy said...

I think you captured Mrs. Fishing Guy in mid-twirl, since this is not a moving photo! Looking at the photo of the tree, I was expecting fruit flower shaped blossoms, not these tubes! Wonderful!!

Rose said...

I love that flowering tree...I don't remember ever seeing anything like it.

Hilary said...

Lovely photos. Yours is the second post I've seen today covering a trip to Salzburg and mentioning the Sound of Music.

Pat's Addition said...

Looks like a great trip!

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

They are stunning Tom. :)

Maybe if you danced with her she would have loved having her picture taken. :)

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Wonderful shots! I would love to visit that spot someday. It appears you had a lovely trip.

Craver Vii said...

Pretty little trumpet blooms.

Carletta said...

The third shot is beautiful Tom!
As is the Mrs. :)

Lawstude said...

i believe that the most beautiful flower for you is the one in the last photo :)

SandyCarlson said...

That's a beautiful tree. Beautiful flowers. Sound of Music is a favorite here. I can see that scene unfolding!

Mary said...

I love that pink tree! Beautiful flowers. Mrs. Fishing Guy looks pretty nice, too :-)

Twisted Fencepost said...

Those flowers are very pretty.
Wonder what kind of tree that is?
She should have twirled! LOL
