Looking back on July

July brought record summer heat and thunder storms, sunshine and rain, a weekend getaway to a wonderful street art event, flowers and, as was to be expected, lots of work tobe done in between all that. But the vacation season is ahead!

A Sunday with weather that couldn’t decide if it should rain or not left us with a short walk in the city.
We had a great lunch in a surprisingly good restaurant and walked down the city mountain to discover pink paths – pink from the blossoms falling down the trees.
Almost magical!

Flower art

I saw this flower installation yesterday at a spring fair.
I loved it a lot – what a wonderful concept, and all the attention to details.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take the artists name.
Still, it’s a gorgeous sight.

As the explosion at the Boston marathon left us afraid and sad and full of questions – What happened? Why? – I’ll send my favorite picture of a wonderful flower garden I visited last year.
May it bring a little peace and brighten your day.
