While this blog is not dedicated to travel, I’d like to share with you some of the beautiful fall flowers and foliage that I was fortunate to see on a recent European trip of a lifetime. My husband and I were guests on a Rhine river cruise with both pre and post excursions attached. We began our vacation in mid-October with a couple of days in Scotland. We then traveled to Amsterdam for a few days prior to starting our river cruise, which sailed through The Netherlands, Germany, France and finally disembarking in Switzerland. Staying four additional days in Switzerland, we arrived back in the US after three wonderful weeks abroad. It was a magical time filled with castles, cathedrals and culture – and plants!
In chronological order of our trip, below you will find photos of the horticultural beauties we enjoyed along the waterways of Europe.
