Our friend Zdenka, beautiful host that she is, took us to Varazdin, telling us that we should go to see one of the best towns in the northern region of Croatia. So here we are in the town center, standing before the city hall where she told us only a few months before a friend of hers had been married.

Actually we were walking around looking for a battery for Boris's camera and we came upon this tiny "hidden" garden in a back yard of a camera shop. Just a small piece of green within the city limits, but it illustrates mans desire to make his surroundings more beautiful.

Of course we found some fragrent flowers just by the smell. As we were walking by an alley, I said "wait a minute" and ducked into the alley, this shrub I found covering an entire wall and the fragrance had gone a long way to reach the street.

    The Varazdin flower looks to be Trumpet Vine (campsis radicans)- -just lovely in full bloom! And the Latin inscription would be: We devote our work(labors) to God.

    So, your Varazdin passport wasn't valid on Slovenian border? Strange. Funny story, great writing. (In Split it's enough to touch Grgur's toe, but I guess customs differ from place to place :)

    What a superb "Boris story"! I meant to write one myself, but now that you've done it so nicely... less work for me ,-)) I guess I'll have to do the parking one, huh...

    I will ask Zdenka if you are doing that or not :))) Btw, i will not tell Boris about this, it is a secret isn't it? Nice page Martin.
