August 2021

I’m still here, just less so. It’s the time of month to look back a year and re-experience my last year’s August. How are you? I miss you and your blogs. I’m still in Slovenia, waiting for the basketball Euro Championship to begin (and end) before I return to Tuscany. It is a completely differentContinue reading “August 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.”

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.”

Day 23 & PPAC: Hanging tree

Another poem inspired by the art in the Porto Ercole botanical garden last summer. Prompt 23: “Write a poem in the style of Kay Ryan, whose poems tend to be short and snappy – with a lot of rhyme and soundplay. They also have a deceptive simplicity about them, like proverbs or aphorisms.“ Right… IContinue reading “Day 23 & PPAC: Hanging tree”

Day Nine & PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 1.

This botanical garden in Porto Ercole in the south of Tuscany is full of ghosts and now art too. My poem is about that. Today we look at the pictures first and the NaPoWriMo poem will follow. Orto botanico Corsini is the botanical garden in Porto Ercole some 20 minutes from me. Last August IContinue reading “Day Nine & PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 1.”

CFFC: Barf and leak

Ooops, I meant bark and leaf. Because Cee asks for it. That I’ve got plenty, but today more bark than leaves. As usually, my gallery is a blend of Tuscany to start with and Slovenia to finish. I’m not sure about all the tree species, but there are eucalyptus, pine, larch (I believe), sycamore (orContinue reading “CFFC: Barf and leak”

Lens-Artists PC: Weird is wonderful

Frankly, half of posts on my blog could have this title. For me, weird is absolutely wonderful and here is a collection of moments, finds and finally us being wonderfully weird, because Leya asked for it. There is art, architecture, some statues, a funny name, some dogs, a snake (yes, yes, a real snake), anContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Weird is wonderful”

CFFC: Twisty or squiggly

Another mighty fun gallery put together for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, ending with my favourite twisty image of all times. I clearly remember posting several twists of fate already, including the last shot of today. It was the post Simple twists of May 2017 when I lost my front tooth to chicken. Today I addContinue reading “CFFC: Twisty or squiggly”

CFFC: Circles and a few wheels

This is a compilation post of the kind that I love doing the most, especially since I don’t recall ever doing a circular gallery in eight years of blogging. I went quickly through all the photos that I took this year (almost 9500) and selected 24 various round shapes that caught my eye. But first,Continue reading “CFFC: Circles and a few wheels”

CMMC: My summer dark greens

This is my first entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge and she would like to see our dark greens, possibly my favourite eye balsam. All my today’s photos were taken this year from June up to now. This has been an exceptionally busy time for me, especially after months and months of low activity. MyContinue reading “CMMC: My summer dark greens”
