“What is one to say about June—the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade?” – Gertrude Jekyll

“The only prospect which is really desirable or delightful, is that from the window of the breakfast-room […] where we meet the first light of the dewy day, the first breath of the morning air, the first glance of gentle eyes; to which we descend in the very spring and elasticity of mental renovation and bodily energy, in the gathering up of our spirit for the new day, in the flush of our awakening from the darkness and the mystery of faint and inactive dreaming, in the resurrection from our daily grave, in the first tremulous sensation of the beauty of our being, in the most glorious perception of the lightning of our life; there, indeed, our expatiation of spirit, when it meets the pulse of outward sound and joy, the voice of bird and breeze and billow, does demand some power of liberty, some space for its going forth into the morning, some freedom of intercourse with the lovely and limitless energy of creature and creation.” ― John Ruskin, The Poetry Of Architecture: Or, The Architecture Of The Nations Of Europe Considered In Its Association With Natural Scenery And National Character
In my sketchbook an elegant urban lamp and its wrought ironed swirls is the subject of my drawing on this Saturday at the end of May. Indeed, these are the days natural light stays with us longer and longer and if you look up to the sky, perhaps you will see also little swallows fly and cheerfully play ring-a-ring-a-roses. Wishing everybody a good Sunday and be safe!
On Mother’s Day in Italy, I have chosen this picture I took some time ago for celebrating and dedicating it to all women and Mothers in the world, because the beauty in their eyes will never fade and will be always in the heart of their own children.
“I was for a while troubled with the haunting fear that if I handled the flower freely its bloom would fade—the sweet charm of freshness would leave it. I did not know then that it was no transitory blossom, but rather the radiant resemblance of one, cut in an indestructible gem.”
“Therefore am I still / A lover of the meadows and the woods, / And mountains; and of all that we behold / From this green earth; of all the mighty world / Of eye and ear, both what they half create / And what perceive; well pleased to recognize / In nature and the language of the sense, / The anchor of my purest thoughts, the nurse/ The guide, the guardian of my heart, and soul / Of all my moral being.” ― William Wordsworth
This little bakery is a familiar place for those, who enjoy a walk in the open air at Skansen. This cosy corner is where to find crisp bread, soft golden croissants and typical fragranced buns. Add a warm cup of coffee and enjoy nature in Skansen!
When we build … let it not be for present delights nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for, and let us think … that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look upon the labor, and the wrought substance of them, See! This our fathers did for us!– John Ruskin
Small bouquets of flowers tell their poetry through different art styles on this Sunday afternoon. According to Peter Rosegger’s quote: “the flower lives and loves and talks a wonderful language”. Do you agree with it? Enjoy a good start of the new week, everybody!
“As one sits here in summertime and listens to the cuckoo and all the other bird songs, the crackling and buzzing of insects, as one gazes at the shining colors of flowers, doth one become dumbstruck before the Kingdom of the Creator“. Carl von Linné
