The Summer Day






Some more Anemone love ... These Japanese Anemones, "Pink Saucers", are just adorable!

The Summer Day

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?

This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.

Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.

I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.

Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?

Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?

- Mary Oliver -


Wishing you a great week ahead,

Nina

About the Bees



Bees are very small, yet they have such an importance to us ... Plants grow thanks to the bees, who do the pollination.

Much is said and written about the bees:


If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.
Maurice Maeterlinck


Everything takes time. Bees have to move very fast to stay still. 
David Foster Wallace


One can no more approach people without love than one can approach bees without care. Such is the quality of bees...
Leo Tolstoy


I’m quietly sipping my coffee,
sitting on the deck,
settled in to my little jungle of herbs and buzzing bees,
letting my thoughts wander, soaked in the warmth of the rising sun.
Breathing in and out the soft air 
filling the moment with fluids of peace.

Anna Asche


... With holiday greetings,

Nina

Summer Holidays


A Saturday afternoon, two weeks ago, I was going to grocery shopping ... And on my way to the store, there was live music on the tiny square! Benjamin Aggerbæk was playing jazz with his band - so I grabbed an Iced Coffee from the nearby cafe, enjoyed the light jazz in the sun. 
It was a joy to watch the sweet toddler playing with the red balloon, and I took a snapshot of her ... This photo called for an color spot edit with a touch of vintage, didn't it?!

Summer Holidays are over us, and we'll be visiting family the next two weeks, where I will be away from the blog. However, thanks to Blogger's Post Planner - function, I have written a few post, that will pop up here every now and then.


Louis Amstrong & Ella Fritzgerald:
Dream a little dream of me


... Wishing you slow days & sunshine,

Nina
