Schloss Mirabelle, Gardens
The linden trees caught my eye immediately, and we watched as workers trimmed the branches back, a process I later learned is called "pollarding"

Well known as a movie location for the "Sound of Music", Mirabell Gardens isn't just for fans. Although it was fun to see the same spots that were in some of the scenes, the gardens themselves are well worth a visit. Unfortunately, in early March, we missed out on the beautiful flowers. I've seen photos of the gardens in peak season, and I hope someday to return to Salzburg during a better time to see Mirabell in full bloom.
