It's Been Awhile - Pictures from Europe!

Hello friends of my blog!
I've been traveling in Central Europe- Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary for a few weeks and have some gardening pictures to share with you all.
My own roses are still not producing too many blooms - probably due to the hurricane that was in the beginning of October and the neglect afterward.  They are now all cleaned up and cut down a little and hopefully will bloom at least once more before we have a frost.  It is sunny and warm here - still like summer in a way.  Indian Summer!
Here are a few pics from my trip - hope you will enjoy!
