Thursday Doors 19/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 2.

This is indeed a door post, even though the featured photo is of the first blooming tree I ever saw on Christmas. Not quite true: on previous Christmas I saw the same fruit tree in bloom, just that the photos I took were rather bad. Monteverde, the hospital and residential area of Rome, is whereContinue reading “Thursday Doors 19/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 2.”

Last photos of December and best news of 2022

Yes, this is now. Here are two last photos of the past year taken with my camera and my phone, plus quite an astonishing piece of news. How are you in the new year? We had amore’s father over here in the wilderness of Tuscany, we ate well, there were zero noises from the outsideContinue reading “Last photos of December and best news of 2022”

Complete Calendar 2021

Before the new year arrives, I still need to deal not with this one but with the one before. Here is 2021 with one photo per month. As I have done five years before – links to previous calendars are listed below the gallery – here is 2021 as it was originally planned, with oneContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2021”

December 2021

Here we go, the last month of the year is here and with it my twelfth but not yet last calendar post. Before the year is through, I will select one photo per month for the final Calendar 2021 post.

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”

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”

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”

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”
