November 2021

Before the month runs out, it’s time for my monthly Calendar post. Here is last November in twenty images plus two special photos from this year. Let’s start with a photo that my uncle in Ljubljana sent me almost three weeks ago, of his Japanese maple in all its November splendour. Next, today is theContinue reading “November 2021”

Thursday Doors 24/11/22: Urban Ljubljana

A memory of a summer day with perhaps not as many doors but with the kind of urban sights that I miss the most. I’m a city girl, no way around it. My tenth year in rural Tuscany finds me relaxed, still marvelling at the pine-green and sky-blue palette that surrounds me, and yet piningContinue reading “Thursday Doors 24/11/22: Urban Ljubljana”

Thursday Doors 17/11/22: Ischia di Castro 4.

Let’s say goodbye to the doors and views of Ischia di Castro with this post. This has been a lovely half an hour, spread around four weeks of Thursday Doors. It was the end of this September and during his vigorous swimming on his last visit of the summer uncle agreed to this one roadContinue reading “Thursday Doors 17/11/22: Ischia di Castro 4.”

Thursday Doors 10/11/22: Ischia di Castro 3.

Let’s continue our stroll through this tiny town near Farnese that keeps on giving us doors and feeding us views. Six minutes it took me to take all today’s photos. As I stroll, I click left and right to what draws my eyes, without thinking, framing, cropping much. Imagine: If you were there instead ofContinue reading “Thursday Doors 10/11/22: Ischia di Castro 3.”

Thursday Doors 3/11/22: Ischia di Castro 2.

A church, some flowers, a dog and doors doors doors. Let’s continue our stroll through one more small Italian town, Ischia di Castro, which started last week on my blog and happened one month ago. This was the last time I saw something new. The places I like the most don’t care whether you stopContinue reading “Thursday Doors 3/11/22: Ischia di Castro 2.”

Last photos of October

This post will be brief, to the point and drama-less. Sure, easy for me to say. What about the praying mantises about to be hatched? I laughed when I saw my friend K.’s comment on Facebook: “Soon you will be an auntie!” Quite. A praying mantis decided to lay her eggs on our gate. ApparentlyContinue reading “Last photos of October”

Thursday Doors 27/10/22: Ischia di Castro 1.

Yes, I know, there is a cat above, but this post is still the beginning of a new door series from a small town that is not even in Tuscany but in Lazio. Ischia di Castro saw me for the first time almost exactly one month ago, when uncle, bestia and I stopped there forContinue reading “Thursday Doors 27/10/22: Ischia di Castro 1.”

Thursday Doors 20/10/22: Maribor 5.

Today is the day when we conclude our Maribor door tour from last month with some fine specimens that carry special significance, memories or name. Our sunny walk with my sister and uncle, which started in this post, lasted between 11.30 am and 4.30 pm on a September Monday, and included lunch, cake and aContinue reading “Thursday Doors 20/10/22: Maribor 5.”

Thursday Doors 13/10/22: Maribor 4.

Let’s continue with our Maribor door tour. Today we reach the park of my childhood where my grandma took me so often. Such lovely memories. Only about one half of the photos below actually contain a door, but I wished to show you our stroll to the park and The Three Ponds in more detail.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 13/10/22: Maribor 4.”

October 2021

Before this October rolls by too fast as months do, here is last year’s in twenty images for my Calendar series. First, a paragraph of apologies. I have stopped replying to comments under my blog posts, and for this I’m not happy. I always read them with such pleasure. Your words are proof that thereContinue reading “October 2021”
