July 12 column: Prague gardens

Prague gardens

The Rose Garden on Petrin Hill

Here is a link to my column in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: Historic gardens worth the climb. This one was particularly fun to write because it’s about the Prague gardens my husband, Bill, and I visited while in the Czech Republic, last month.

In my column, I talk about several different Prague gardens and promised to post additional photos of them on my blog. So here they are! Refer to the captions for the locations. I hope you’ll enjoying reading about them. Remember that you can click on any of the images in order to see an enlarged view.
