I love the neatness and the practicality of the Swiss. Everything is clearly thought through, but nothing is fancy. The hotel decor was very simple but the room had everything you need, plus the view was extraordinary; the cute town of Lauterbrunnen with the Alps in the distance.
This watercolor was based on a photo from our walk down the mountain from Murren. The houses we passed were small and simple and neat as a pin, and many had flowers in the window boxes as well as a flower garden. These are people who seriously love their flowers, they seem to be planted everywhere possible. Plus there are banks of wildflowers that are amazing, in amongst the tidy fields tended by thoughtful, hardworking people.
