June 2021

Before this June gets out of hand and out of sight, here are twenty photos from last year’s in memory of the early hot post-pandemic joys. There were two especially memorable days: when I drove north towards Castiglione della Pescaia to visit a new-to-me artistic garden “Viaggio di Ritorno”, the home and playground of scrapContinue reading “June 2021”

Thursday Doors 16/6/22: Piran 2.

Thinking about how to arrange all my recent door photos from the pretty Piran, I decided to just do it chronologically. All these are from the first Saturday in June, two days after I arrived in Slovenia for the summer. I’m having problems with the speed, image quality and typing on my laptop, so I’llContinue reading “Thursday Doors 16/6/22: Piran 2.”

PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 4.

How are you, people? I hope you’re having a hooping Sunday. To round up this series, here is more art from the botanical garden in the south of Tuscany last summer. After two poems in April, inspired by this visit, last week we started our stroll through this exhibition called ENDGAME (after Samuel Beckett’s play)Continue reading “PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 4.”

PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 3.

Good to see Marsha back in the PPAC saddle. Here is more art from the botanical garden Corsini. After April when two art pieces from the exhibition “Endgame” inspired two poems (Boy with Deer and Hanging Tree), today I show you more artistic interventions in the Botanical Garden Corsini in Porto Ercole as viewed lastContinue reading “PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 3.”

May 2021

The selection was not easy, but here are twenty photos from last May for my Calendar. Frankly, I could easily post nothing but twenty photos of poppies, twenty of other flowers, twenty of animals, or twenty from my two day trips. Here is a bit of everything then. May is possibly the prettiest month aroundContinue reading “May 2021”

A man on the roof

Last year at this time I was going slightly mad. What else is new, eh? Here he is, unassuming, innocent, spotted and shot from far away for being a novelty. I lacked impulses so much that five minutes with a man on the roof meant the world to me. And this year that I couldContinue reading “A man on the roof”

Thursday Doors 5/5/22: Capalbio

You have seen this town and most of its doors already but the photos are new. On Sunday I hopped up with my passing visitors and clicked around while they climbed the tower. Sunday was lovely. Yesterday you saw the poppies we found, and today you will see our nearest town, Capalbio on the hill,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 5/5/22: Capalbio”

Day 30: Magic cento

Today is the day to finish things and maybe start new ones. We had another amazing April, my fifth, in the company of Maureen’s prompts and all the poets and their poems. My last poem is for you all. Prompt 30: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a cento. This is a poemContinue reading “Day 30: Magic cento”

Day 29 & Friendly Friday: Travel books

As Sandy teams up with the four ladies who run the What’s On Your Bookshelf challenge on the subject of travel books, I’d like to present three books by three bloggers that I admire. On my penultimate poem of April, I was barely able to nail the poetry series, just like the Mavs. But weContinue reading “Day 29 & Friendly Friday: Travel books”
