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”

Mercurial

Here is a nonet I wrote yesterday with nine syllables in the first line and one in the ninth. The photos are old but from the heart and slightly mercurial. Mercurial Nine is the times you cried for my love. Eight times I said no and cried back. Seven was not even when six cameContinue reading “Mercurial”

Birthday Thursday Doors 26/5/22 with three door stories

This post is also my contribution to the second Thursday Doors Writing Challenge: three door photos called my name and caught my eye and earned some words.

My favourite kind of flowers are those that are still growing. All these were growing last May here in southern Tuscany. Okay, the Ukraine had to win the Eurovision Song Contest. And now I’m so extremely interested in seeing whether the league and the system will let Luka and the Mavs win tonight and eliminateContinue reading “Just flowers”

Friendly Friday leading cat lines

This post is really an excuse to show Sarah the cats around my home last May. Hopefully certain lines that lead to cats will be noticeable. Whatever you do, never learn photography from me. I promised Friendly Friday Sarah to do my best in finding leading lines in my photos, but then I got distractedContinue reading “Friendly Friday leading cat lines”

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”
