Lazy Walking

Lazy walking outside is my sweet joy these days.

I do a lot of it because I need to get my lymph pumping and stuff.

The whole experience is utterly magical. Especially when I take my camera with me and we hunt for some lovely eye candies together.

Earth Day – Yay!

To celebrate this wonderful day I am posting a few snippets from my Mom’s garden.

Because my Mom and Dad’s garden could possibly be the most beautiful place on Earth.

This is an apple tree in bloom.

If I were a bee, I’d land on one of those wonderful flowers right away.

But I am not.

So I won’t.

A lovely tulip.


Pear tree just about to bloom.


And guess what this is…

Oh, you don’t have to ’cause I’m gonna tell ya.

It’s a gorgeous walnut tree that is coming into leaf and flower soon.

Have a wonderful Earth Day everybody… and enjoy!

And now, please, excuse me, I am going to buy some eggnog (… to celebrate the day properly. No, I am not an alcoholic, I just like eggnog. Or, dang…, is that what all alcoholics say? Hm… doesn’t matter… CHEERS!).

Spring Is…

Down On My Knees

The other day we went for a trip.

OK, it wasn’t a trip per se.

We headed to a nearby city for some business, to be exact. So WAIT, it was a trip – a business trip.

But then, to me, everything is a joyful and enjoyable trip, because I like to live that way. I twist the accurate reality into whatever I like it to be. I have that ability. Just give me a chunk of any reality and I’ll turn it into whatever you wish for. Maybe I should start a business with that.

On the way back – driving towards the setting sun – I screamed with excitement suddenly, and made my BF pull over the car.

The grass, I noticed, was so verdant and captivating that I just couldn’t not take a picture of it.

That would lead to my – both physical and mental – disintegration.

As soon as the car came to a stop, I ran into the field and got down on my knees to scrutinize that dazzling perfection.

That Petra is a complete freak,… poor, poor her.

I heard ya!

The subsiding, golden rays of light were creating a true soul-warming scenery.

Real pleasure to look at.

In photography this is called ‘golden light’, and it is definitely my favorite light throughout the day.

I would have probably been lying there on the spring, muddy ground forever (read: till my memory card would get filled up), taking pictures of the magnificent grass from each possible and impossible angle,  if it hadn’t been for my beloved boyfriend who kindly informed me that it was time to go.

So home we went happily.
