The flowers in Switzerland...

...are incredible. Our destination for a bloomin' week in the most beautiful country in the world was the quaint little village of Saas Fee which is nestled in between snow peeks of the Alps. Hubby and I have always lived on the out skirts of where ever we are, not crowd people. So we found a jewel at the dead end of a winding autos allowed. Romantik Hotel Beau-Site. We pulled our car into a parking garage, called the hotel and were picked up in this golf cart on steroids.

Our balcony was the one next to the hotel sign.
A town where the locals go to hike in the summer, ski in the winter or just to get away from it all. Of course this hiking boot planter hanging on a window of our hotel restaurant caught my eye.
More flowers at the entrance of the hotel...
and walking along the cobble stone streets.
These were in the next village...Saas-Grund. We took the bus over there for a bit of trotti riding...more on that later.

These were in Zermatt...another day trip we took to see the Matterhorn.

Our week in Saas-Fee came to an end way too quickly but it was time to head to Milan, Italy for hubby's business meeting. Along the way we spent a night in Interlaken so our son could have his first hang gliding experience...more on that later. These beautiful bells were in this bustling city. Just incredible...the imagination of our Creator.

Flowers make me smile and I hope
I made you smile as well.

Have a bloomin' good day!

I'm back!

Switzerland was fabulous!

The Matterhorn still there...

(see photo from two posts back)

Will post more after the
piles of laundry are done
and the
knee high grass is cut.

I miss you all...

Bags are packed...

...but I'm going to need a bigger plane.

Good thing we are only
going for two weeks!

Can't wait to return and
show you what I did
and what I saw.

Auf Wiedersehen

I'm leaving on a jet plane...

Father & Mother-in-law with hubby and ME!

Heading back to Switzerland after 20 years. We were there for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary in 1990. I have changed a bit but the Matterhorn will most likely be the same. This time we will have our son with us. He with be 18 next month but was only a twinkle in our eyes back then. Going to try to capture the same angle and will share the new scene when I return.

Will be spending a week in and around Zermatt and packing in as much fun as possible. Then will spend another week in Milan, Italy. Hubby has business there. Samuel, me, and the ladies of the other husbands will be setting out on day trips to see the sites. I am so hoping there are at least one or two junkin' divas in the bunch. I'm the new kid of the group, so will be on my best behavior...for a while anyway.

Anyone know any bloggers in these places?
