I think my spring cotton scarf offended the Winter God. Today Barcelona is blocked under the worst snow storm of the last I-don't-know-how-many years. Really impressive. My street is on top of a hill, next to a park. My neighbours are riding on plastic bags sleighs down the street... I'm wearing my wool scarf again (and hat and gloves and two pairs of knee-high socks... I hope this will soothe His wrath)
I'd like to start my new 'blogging season' -this is, blogging again after a long busy period without internet at home- with some pictures from our holidays in Sicily last Christmas. The most delicious tangerines ever, from my boyfriend's family land.We watched a friend harvesting honey. Don't let the digital zoom fool you, we stood very far back!
I am now in Spain, enjoying a real summer with high temperatures, picnics and trips to the beach. I don’t have an internet connection at the moment, so regular blogging will be difficult in the next weeks. As soon as I have my own place and proper internet access I’ll blog about these beautiful holidays. Today, just a few pictures of a picnic by the lake not far from here.
It's iris season, and at the Botanic Gardens they take it seriously.By the pond, in a more relaxed way...
I like poppies but look at the size of this variety: isn't it scary?
A picture taken at the Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin, Dublin. A tiny bit of Photoshop. And voilà my very own baroque Flemish painting.But if you prefer nature to art, here is a selection of untouched pictures, from my first visit to Aunt Peony, which is beginning to bloom now:
