”I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty”. – Georgia O’Keeffe
En mysig atmosfär med kaffe och kanelbullar. Önskar er alla en bra vecka! <3
“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
Enjoy the weekend, everybody! <3

Herzliche Grüße an alle Väter <3
“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
Wishing a good weekend to everybody!
Glad Midsommar till er alla!
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!
