It has been a very active year for travels.
Here, there and everywhere.
I am still working on the Bascelona travel diary, and for hours every day now I am making preparation for the next trip abroad. And as always, the more I read and learn about a "new" place, the faster my heart beats and blood flows.
But in between I need to nurture my roots,
and the best place to do that is in The Blue Garden.
The Blue Garden is painted in all the colours of the rainbow just now.
I sit down, I walk around,
and I let the beauty shower my skin.
Red roses, orange tagetes, yellow poppies, green a million shades of green, blue jacob´s ladder, indigo hostas, violet in a multitude of shades in the herb garden. And a bed is overflowing with blue, red and violet columbines and pink late peonies inherited from a neighbour, blooming for the first time this summer.
I brought out my camera to capture the rainbow,
and ended up with a series of macro photos of a fading dandelion.
Rain and sun creates the rainbow.
Without grey the colours would be hard to see.
From time to time I need to live through the macro lens.
