    I found a blog mentioning a pink giant rabbit outside the Wien Operhaus (Vienna Operahouse), and it looks like this one. There they mentioned a green one on the roof of the Bitzinger Würtzelstand ...

    Elaine here: Well I missed the green one when I was in town yesterday, but you have correctly identified the building and the city. However, you missed the animal by a hair - though most Americans (including us) would make the same mistake. The man who created the original of this colorful copy said,

    "As I grew older, I realized that it was much better
    to insist on the genuine forms of nature,
    for simplicity is the greatest adornment of art."

    As I think you have solved the picture riddle, I don't think we should try to squeeze any more information out of you, so we will confess that this "Young Hare" was originally painted by the German artist Albrecht Dürer in 1505 and is now a treasure of the Albertina Museum in Vienna (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Hare). One can only wonder what Dürer would have thought about the pink and green gags.

    And now from Norway comes????

    That was a tough one, had to resort to some vague info on a travel blog and then a tour of the Swedish countryside via Google Earth. A good challenge Tom.

    Let's see where this one takes us.

    I guess they need to make flowers out of glass there. Too dry to grow them naturally.

    (So, did you win more than you lost?)

    Win? Not a chance of that happening, although it did take a while to lose the $5 I had left after paying for my new gear.

    Glad you liked the challenge, John. My fiancee and I found this on our trip home from Denmark this summer. Never heard about the place before

    It looks like you have been in Las Vegas - the Bellagio hotel has a glass flower garden.
