Poppy fields forever

Summer in all its glory has arrived in Vienna with beautiful sunny and hot days. And most importantly the stunning poppy fields!

I just love the red dots of colour in the mass of green and concrete.

That lovely field can be found in the 21st district of Vienna if you get off at the tram station, Fultonstraße and go a short distance by foot, you stand in the middle of some farmland.

I heard that these farms will vanish soon and will be replaced by new apartment buildings, so let’s see how long those fields will be here!

Lilac

One of my favourite things in Spring is the powerful scent of lilacs, proclaiming that it is indeed already Spring.
Also I love the varieties of white and violet lilacs. It especially looks pretty when both are side by side.
