*daisies and sunshine

Finally summer has arrived! We are having 31 degrees right now and I am not the only one who is enjoying it. Sunny is a true sun worshipper and is far more relaxed since the extra dosage of sunshine and warmth. And we were able to pick first ripe may- and strawberries. A wild camomile plant sprouted in my greenhouse which is in full bloom now and behind the greenhouse blooms a huge red poppy that I also never sowed. Such surprises make me so happy! Enjoy the last precious moments of May!

*cherry blossom world

 "Most of the people are homesick anyway,
and a little lonely,
and they hide themselves in their hair
and are turned into flowers."

*forest rocks

Huge forest rocks and holy water.

*fairytale forests and curious fallow deer

When I found that little abandoned house in the woods I immediately fantasized about restoring it and how it must be to live there, to hear the forest sounds all night long. Such a dreamy place!

Misty mornings at the forest lake.

I finally found peace in writing letters again. And I'm using a thin brush and ink for writing now. I was never happy with my handwriting and often felt tense when writing, but with a brush it feels much better and more natural to me. Strange that I've never thought of writing this way in my past, it seemed nonpractical to me, but it is actually the softest way and easier to take up ink than with a calligraphy pen, at least for me.

Misty mountain greens
from our last trip with the van.

Weather is still a bit under the weather –
so I'm drinking cystus tea and writing letters.
