Kew Gardens: Welcome To Fantasyland

At the beginning I thought, there is quite some cheesiness in the glas sculptures of Dale Chihuly exposed in Kew Gardens in London. Bright colors, excessive forms – just an overdose of everything. But than I remembered plants I have photographed in the last years. Nature is like that. Exagerated, colourful and immoderate. So I’m quite d’accord with the artists title “reflections on nature”. Take a look and decide what you think is art and what is nature.
Definitly a must-see.

English Gardening

England is not only the place, where the gras is greener but also paradise for gardeners. We have been to a wonderful show garden with stunning plants from all over the world.

May In The Garden

Our private wilderness changes its face every week and shows us what nature can do without any influence. Tobias. the apple tree who was just a stick with roots four weeks ago has grown a lot of leaves and a lot of birds come to see us every morning.  And Wolfgang the squirrel becomes less and less shy. I guess he likes being photographed. At least he stares at me while I’m taking pictures.

Berlin Day Hike: Endless Summer in Stobbertal

Yeah! We made a hike after quite a while! Renovating can be quite satisfying but it can also be very, very annoying and so I was happily tricked into one day leisure activity a week. What shall I say: It’s great. Let’s do it again.
