it's all about the strawberries
We finally got rain and grass is getting green again. This time of year it's all about finding the perfect strawberries.
They are needed tomorrow when we celebrate Midsummer (a few days too early actually, to make it fit with a weekend, which means you can celebrate twice).
It's most beautiful and melancholic. Marks the beginning of summer and at the same time days will turn back towards darkness. Next week I'll be in Luleå and even farther north where the midnight sun rules. I'll show you!
All work is done, from now on only preparations for summer activities. I'll pop in a post now and then, when connected. Thank you all, so much, for this my first season of blogging. Wish you a happy Midsummer, and summer and summer. See you around!
A few of those new to me from this blog season, for rainy days:
Jason De Caires Taylor underwater sculpture
Bjørn Lie drawings and more
Elspeth Diederix photography
Painting of India
Warwick Orme Flora Nova
Lindsey Feuer cceramic
Mariana Monteagudo sculptures
Anders Jirås panorama of the Brayuvangs Pagoda, Phnom Penh (maybe not so new but a favourite)
Ashes and snow, Gregory Colbert
I could go on.
