This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge: Near and Far. Share a photo that means Near and Far to you! Blogger friends, I’m off for my annual vacation. This year’s destinations: Munich and Croatia.

Munich is one of my favorite cities, and I’m fortunate to be able to visit almost every year. Like most visitors, I love the city’s well-known attractions, such as the Hofbrau Haus, the Marienplatz, or any of Munich’s world-class museums, like the Deutsches Museum. But being a nature-lover, I also love the Munich Botanic Garden in the suburb of Nymphenburg. If you love nature too, you will enjoy a visit to the Botanic Garden, home to approximately 14,000 plant species. […]
Yesterday I posted a photo of purple hyacinths, which used to be the first flower that emerged in my garden in Colorado Springs. Now I live in the high desert of Colorado’s San Luis Valley, and this is the first flower I see in the Spring.
