Hibiscus flowers in January

hibiscus

“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.”

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

der uns den süßen Augenblick

Laßt uns das warme Gold des Lichts genießen,
das mit dem starken Duft der Wälder uns umfängt”. Carl Peter Fröhling

The good fragrance of bread at Skansen

Skansen, Bageri

From my sketchbook.

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!

Shades of blue

Plumbago

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

“A childhood without books – that would be no childhood. That would be like being shut out from the enchanted place where you can go and find the rarest kind of joy.”
