A couple of weeks ago a fellow blogger included me in a photo challenge which I'm just now getting around to. In the meantime, however, I've had a visitor from the States and anyone who lives abroad knows how everything else (yes, even blogging) gets pushed to the side when family is in town. Anyhoo, here's the photo from my files that ended up being posted. It's a shot from our balcony taken back in February 2005 (with an older camera, I might add). This is a scene we often enjoy between November and April in the Alps, although by the time April rolls around "enjoy" may not be the most appropriate word. I'm happy to say that our scenery has now changed to green pastures, lazy cows, wildflowers and apple blossoms. In fact, I think I'll go sit on the balcony and enjoy all of that as long as the sun is still shining.
