If people did not love one another, I really don’t see what use there would be in having any spring.Victor Hugo
Dear Photo Diary,
sorry it’s been a while. I haven’t taken a lot of photos with my big camera lately. Life is at a stand still, not just for me, but for much of the world. But in nature, nothing stands still. It is spring outside and I feel lucky that I can still go out and enjoy spring…
We have so many birthdays in April and May, and these are a few of my photos from these occasions. Firstly, Smilla and me:
Smilla the cat is alive and well, as you can tell. She turned 15 years old this fall.
Dad, who got a beautiful Magnolia tree on his 50th birthday turned 75 last week, and so the Magnolia turned 25 years old.
I fall in love with it a little bit more every time I see it.
Mom has been sewing her own amazing dresses for years now, this is her latest creation, with an embroidered patchwork heart at the back that I though matched her sewing needle tattoo very well. She is my DIY hero.
I also love…
This light, just before the rain.
Pink speckled Geraniums. Tulip balls. Tiny clusters of Forget me not flowers (Myosotis). And our visit to our nearby favorite castle for fika. It was almost empty of people except us.
Nature, close to home. Bringing little flower bouquets with me home and using my favorite vases to decorate a spot in our otherwise chaotic and messy household.
This week I wanted to document everything and do a “week in the life” type exploration of what’s going on around here – but it didn’t happen. I couldn’t find my motivation for it. And I’m too tired to clean – but maybe it’ll get done another day. How are you doing?
Take care of yourself.
