Holiday Time

Standard

Finally August and for most it is holiday time.

For me it also means time do to things around the house.

Here an update:

My wooden kitchen worktop needed a little tender loving care.

So I started to sand it down.

Now nice and smooth, I can varnish it.

Another day I made bracelets. .

I love making jewellery, make presents or sell some at markets occasionally.

I made all these with different seed beads.

 

I have in my garden an ‘elephant ear’ plant, it grows amazingly big.

 

 

As you know I love my plants and flowers.

Therefore I became a ‘friend of Kew Gardens’.

Kew Gardens is a wonderful huge botanical garden offering unique landscapes and iconic architecture from every stage of the Garden’s history.

It has a collection of living plants which is the largest and most diverse in the world growing in the gardens and in glass houses.

It is in West London and I can go by train.

I can’t wait to go, out for a day lost in the gardens……

There will be updates on this with more pictures of the gardens.

Wishing all a wonderful Summer 2018!

Corpus Christi – Fronleichnam

Standard

There is a religious catholic holiday in Germany called Fronleichnam

In English it is called Corpus Christi.

I was fortunate to witness it on Thursday, while I visited my mum.

Custom is that people make flower carpets where the procession walks along.

They are made out of leaves, flowers and petals of different colours.

I saw the fresh carpets in the morning, and they were so beautiful.

We saw the procession coming from the church.

 

The priest read from the bible and then they

continued to the town center.

 

It was lovely to watch in beautiful sunshine.

 Beauty is all around us! 

Open your eyes and look at things with

a open and positive mind.

Even daily things look beautiful.

The sky from my window

showed amazing cloud formations and colour!

 

 

Everything has its beauty 

but not everyone sees it.
