    1. Hi Elisabeth, thank you for writing! I have a wish to visit Austria in the next couple of years. I want to go to Rotterdam to take some felting classes so I may combine the two. I checked out your garden blog - very nice! I am always looking for good garden posts for my website so if you don't mind, I may use one in the near future with a link and full credit to you of course!
