This photo was taken on a summer day. =) From here, you see the Neptune fountain and the Gloriette on top of the hill (partly covered by a tree). Yes, the flowers are visible now, do you notice the red and white blossoms arranged alternately? Those are the colors of the Austrian flag...an aerial view of the garden will show a magnificent display of landscape designed specifically for Schönbrunn.
Another interesting inclusion are the sculptures lining the left and right pathwalks (this is the left pathway facing the gloriette, yesterday's photo was the middle pathwalk). They line up equally and are the allegories of mythical gods...too bad that only one of those scupltures is visible here, but there'd be the days ahead to post them. ;-)
