    1. Thanks. It is always a matter more of luck than of skill. The tryptich is in a somewhat secluded room at the Cloisters without too much light or traffic.

    1. I hope you go again. In May or June when the gardens planted in three of the four cloisters are in bloom. One of them is based on the plants and herbs which Charlemagne grew. All of them to purpose: medicine, flavouring, drink or poison!
