November 2021

Before the month runs out, it’s time for my monthly Calendar post. Here is last November in twenty images plus two special photos from this year. 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”

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”

Thursday Doors 29/9/22: September 2021

I have already showed you my last year’s September in Italy and Slovenia in my two previous posts, only its doors were missing since I’ve been saving them for today. First of all, I wish health and safety to you all. These things are more than just little treats or small mercies. Let them last.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 29/9/22: September 2021”

September 2021

Last September was such a happening month. Here it is in twenty images for my monthly Calendar series. Let me continue right where I stopped in my previous post: I showed you our seven days together with Crystal and Pedro which were spent in Tuscany and Slovenia. Some of today’s photos are from this timeContinue reading “September 2021”

Seven days in last September

When I started choosing photos from September 2021 for my monthly calendar post, I realised it won’t go as easy. The first week was so busy that it deserves its own post. This is it. The proper September 2021 post will follow soon, and on Thursday there will be doors only from this eventful month.Continue reading “Seven days in last September”

Last photo of August

The last photo is from serene Piran, but the news are from tumultuous Tuscany. I’m having such dramatic summer last photo posts… In June it was Luka and his almost shirt, in July it was camera trouble, and on Saturday a rain bomb hit our home in Tuscany. Our first floor got flooded because theContinue reading “Last photo of August”

Thursday Doors: Last September 1st in Pitigliano

Today I wish to look back exactly one year and revisit Pitigliano and some of its doors in the splendid company of Crystal and Pedro from Oregon. Where did one year go? But first this: Today is the first day of school in Slovenia, the first day of the hunting season in Tuscany, and thisContinue reading “Thursday Doors: Last September 1st in Pitigliano”

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”

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”
