Spring Impressions

Last Tuesday I participated in our department management retreat, where we worked out the principles guiding our work. The meeting was in the Study Centre Gerzensee of the Swiss National Bank. It is located partially in a Château surrounded by a beautiful park overlooking a lake, with a fantastic view of the Alps in the background. I took some shots of the springtime ambiance in the park.

The idyllic impression got a dissonance, when a biting smell came from a terrace below the front, where a gardener  in a  protective suit covering the whole body and a big gas mask was spraying poison over the rose trees – calling me brutally back into the present day environmental pollution.


A horse statue galloping through the garden. The horse is a symbol of the vital power of the fiery signs of the zodiac, where the head represents Aries, the body Leo and the tail Sagittarius.


The satyr Pan playing his flute in the garden and evoking the flowers from out of the earth

    I love Switzerland. I have Swiss German family and spend a lot of time there travelling around on the train system with a Swiss Rail pass. That is the cheapest way to travel in Switzerland as you can use the trains, buses, trams, boats and coaches for free. Not to mention getting free or a discounted ticket on many of the mountain trains and cable cars. The cost of transport is very expensive and the ticket more than pays for itself over and over. These are beautiful pictures, that area of Switzerland is extremely scenic by train, we always take that route at some stage when we are there. Thank you. Blessings. Melodie
