My Neck of the Woods


Nothing like a beautiful day at the foot of the Alps.



A peaceful meadow.....


filled with wildflowers......


Even the horses love it here.......


.......running free at the foot of the Alps...
The first one to tell me the correct name of the castle in the distance gets a little "goodie" packet.
Can you name the castle for me? Walt Disney loved this place. Bonus question: Who knows the name of town I am in while taking these fotos of the castle?
Good Luck!
P.S. You must be a follower in order to receive the "goodies".......

Hey Cynnie! These photos are gorgeous! I would soooo love to visit Europe. I'll take a guess at the castle name. Is it Neuschwanstein? Have a wonderful day!

I have no business getting more goodies from you Cynnie, but Neuschwanstein (SP?) is one of my favorite castles, altho Linderhof is gorgeous too, isn't that where the Moorish teahouse is?
It has been many years since I've visited Ludwig's castles ... Lucky lucky you ... what a fine backyard you have!
Thank you for sharing this wonderful photos!
Missed you while you were gone.

Beautiful photos and breathtaking scenceray. Don't ask for me to pronounce it but is it Neuschwanstein. Disney used it as inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's castle. Have a great weekend and will be in contact very soon :) Lynne x

Beautiful countryside, just beautiful :) I see that everyone has named the castle, I didn't know what it was anyway LOL. I have been in Germany and Austria three times growing up too, you would think I could have guessed it.

It's the Neuschwanstein Castle. What an amazing place to be able to live.

Absolutely stunning scenery, Cynnie. Thanks for taking me to a beautiful spot on the other side of the world, if only for a few minutes.

Beautiful photos Cynnie - they convey peace and 'schoonheid' - isn't it lovely to live in such surroundings!

Jenni said...

Lovely photos! I think that's Neuschwanstein in the background taken from Schwangau? Anyway really pretty. I've been there but only in the winter. It's so pretty, a real fairy-tale castle.

You live here? Omg, it's so beautiful- no wonder you're so inspired in your work! I'm envious!

Hi Cynthia,
I stumbled upon your blog and I'm so glad I did. The pictures are beautiful, I can't even imagine a place like that in my dreams, let a lone in real life.

I first heard about this castle from Jim Holtz of Ranger/Adirondack. He mentioned that Walt Disney loved it so much he modeled the castle at California's Disney after it. It's a beautiful caste indeed.
