We have been on a vacation in the mountains, but had to cancel it and drive back, because Sunny got sick and will have an operation today.
Today all I wish is that Sunny will survive. Again and again I am confronted with my biggest fears. Loosing him. I am a person who is aware of death in every moment. Whenever I look at someone I love, I am highly aware that I won't have this person in this form forever. This sounds depressing, but on the other side it makes me remember the most important things. Where I come from, death does not exist. That makes living here so disturbing. In my heart I know we are all eternal, but still I am attached very much to everyone that is so close to me. Sometimes I grief even before I loose someone. This is not healthy. But I do it, because I am scared to be not prepared. Life is so intense.

Quick update: Sunny is ok! He is back home with me now, recovering! Thank you for your kind words and thoughts! Today will be the hottest day so far, up to 35 degrees! Have a good day!

garden update



Lilac summer days.


at the lake

At the end of May we made a weekend trip to the lakes of the wood quarter. Weather was changeable, so it happened that there were hardly any other people. I could imagine living a life on the road, staying at different pretty places with only little luggage, living in the moment, enjoying nature and sleeping in the van. Sunny loves it too. Whenever we return from one of our trips, he refuses to step out of the vehicle. And he wants to jump inside every car that has the door opened which can be tricky sometimes ;)
Weather is still changeable, but I managed to go swimming several times. It's not really the summery feeling yet, but refreshing for the whole body system. Enjoy your last weekend hours + see you soon again ;)


the woods, the woods

I felt like deleting 5 years of my blog.
Liberating! And now I'm looking forward what the future might bring!
Happy Friday to you all!


home sweet home

I love the sound of empty rooms.
I'm sure you all experienced it, when you moved from one place to another, how it changed the sound of the room after putting in all your belongings. Empty spaces have a peculiar charm to me. I often daydream of a huge room in a mansion with high ceilings, an old wooden floor and big opened windows with transparent curtains, fluttering in the wind. My whole being is breathing a sigh of relief when thinking of this. The house we live in has quite small rooms, nevertheless I managed to bring in that feeling more and more. Energy is floating around as it should and the sound of empty spaces returns.
At the weekend I took my time to stick in some more pictures into my inspiration journal. This is always a relaxing thing to do. {more pictures to follow}
Weather is pretty crazy right now, thunder and sun alternate quicker than you think it might be possible. A good start into the new week to you all, my dear readers!



garden update

The good season has started! Life feels so much better when you are finally able to harvest berries and greens from the garden again. It seems the plants are catching up now and even though some plants are still pretty small, they compensate it with blooming earlier. So first cucumber and zucchini flowers are showing up and the peas gare climbing upwards as if it was a race. Every day new changes! With the different climate this year it took me from March until now to get the bitter melon seeds sprouting, but now I can lean back and watch them growing. If you want to see some more pictures, don't forget to have a look at Lotte's and my garden album.
Until soon again!



One of my personal highlights is the blooming period of my cheddar pinks. They look like a happy pink carpet in their pot. The greenhouse is not mine, it is one that I always pass by when I make my nature walks. Greenhouses are so appealing to me, they create such a lovely atmosphere. 
Have a good start into the new week!


Aloe vera

Last year Lotte sent me an offshoot from her aloe vera plant. I must admit it did not grow so fast, but recently it surprised me with it's first baby offshoot!
Have a lovely Sunday evening!
