The flowers in our hotel lobby: fragrant casablanca lilies with ivy, served up in fluted glass vases in which the water had been tinted ruby red. A classic presentation.
A narrow street in "Old" Zurich, the historic area of the city. I have used the word charming all too often, but I cannot think of another word that more closely describes this city.
This little baker boy lived on that street, residing in a bakery window, plying his seasonal wares of marzipan pumpkins. Yum.
One of the many apartments, hotels, inns and residences with overflowing window boxes. Such a cheerful countenance, even when the skies are grey, as they were that morning.
Zurich is a city of some 400,000 people, which was founded by the Romans, but was not recorded in official documents until the year 929.
