July 2021

Before July runs away from us, here is how this month went by last year in twenty images. I’m not pleased with my levels of creativity here in Slovenia at all. I’ve needed three weeks to come up with this post, July for my Calendar 2021. Mostly it’s because my body is using all theContinue reading “July 2021”

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”

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.”

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”

Bottlebrush progression

May is the month when bottlebrush (Callistemon) starts to bloom around here in Tuscany and one bush is conveniently placed in a garden just behind our home. This is how it went last May. And if you are impatiently waiting to flower, think about what Denise Riley wrote about it in the essay “Lyric Shame”Continue reading “Bottlebrush progression”
