A Walk in the Park – Cycle Days Ride 79

Well, not just a walk in the park, we did ride our bikes to get there, but the park was certainly the highlight.

I haven’t been posting all my Cycle Days Challenge photos, I thought I would just wait until the end of the month and link to my website. But (Rich!) I wanted to show the French gardens here as opposed to the English style garden in a previous post.

We have ridden our bikes to Schleissheim Palace so often, it is a kind of ho-hum thing to do. So we hadn’t been there for a while. The last time we were there was in the spring, too early for any flowers in the park. Today we could experience the park in all its glory. The French style park behind the palace is always beautifully landscaped and meticulously tended. Our walk in the park made it a not so ho-hum outing after all.
This was ride #79; 28 km.

    Very nice slide show of your delightful (non-ho hum) ride Suzanne. That is quite a nice trick that I do not know how to do. Must do some research I guess.
    Thanks for sharing your ride.

      Not so difficult once you know how. After uploading your pics, you have the option to make a gallery. Once you have included your photos in the gallery, you can indicate in what form, for example slide show. Be sure to have your cursor at the place in the text where you want your slideshow to appear. Give it a try.

    That is truly amazing. Hard to imagine how they laid out the entire plan, and even more so how they maintain it.
    I wonder how many people are involved in manicuring it?
    There must be greenhouses the size of aircraft hangers to grow all those plants.

    So, is the high maintenance of the French garden a reason why the English garden became favored?
    Looking at Bing images of the palace is equally incredible.

    Thank You!!

    What an absolutely gorgeous garden – I love the swirls. The building picture looks like a painting. Even with all of your record heat, you’ve still got amazing flowers!
