A Bit Late - But Still In Time...

Last week, Xanthe and Andrea have started a collaboration about colours - such a great idea, as I'm clearly in need for some colours right now; these grey and foggy days seem to go on forever.

I missed last week's colour red, because I didn't find anything red to take pictures of… needless to say there are plenty of red things in my household, which I keep seeing, now that the colour yellow is asked for. 

But yellow is really difficult - nothing yellow in my home (or so I think…), as it isn't one of my favourite colours, unless flowers are involved, of course. And so it's quite serendipitous I discovered this beautiful yellow buttercup this week:

Before I'll hop over to visit everyone at Texture Tuesday and celebrate Kim's return home, I'm off to the dentist's (once again…) - wish me luck!

Speaking of which (wishing luck that is, not the dentist): no news on my lens yet... I took the photo above with my macro.

Have a wonderful and colourful week everyone!

January 17

Is it weird to say "Happy 2014", when we are already 17 days into January? Well, anyway, I hope you had a good start into this new year!

The last weeks of 2013 were "challenging", and of course the challenges didn't stop just because we've started out into a new year and write 2014 now instead of 2013. And if that weren't enough, my "go-to" lens gave up on me last week - I'm not sure I'm ready for the estimate of its costs of repair...

Here is one of the last photos with it:


and yes, it's really been taken only a few days ago. You wouldn't believe this is a "January photo", would you? I could happily do without any snow for the rest of winter here; due to the mild temperatures we've had since Christmas, I'm all set for a nice and balmy spring. And flowers!!

So, this Friday finds me happy to be here again, I'm looking forward to catch up on you. And to hop over to Kim's to have a look at some other Friday Finds.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! And Happy 2014!

About Timing...

A root canal treatment is definitely the last thing I needed in this already hectic time... but I guess I'd rather have it now than over the Christmas Holidays with no dentist available...

So here is just a quick "Hello" from me, linking up to Kim's Texture Tuesday, before heading back to couch and painkillers.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

A Sign

The first amaryllis are around, which for me is always a sure sign, that Christmas is around the corner (can you hear that slight panic in my voice...?!!).

I know - it's the same with me every year... sigh... but nevertheless I think amaryllis are wonderful to look at, don't you?

Have a wonderful week everyone - Happy Thanksgiving!

Surprise

I didn't find vibrant colours, as I had hoped for last week, nor did anything black and white inspire me, but I found a little surprise on my balcony!

Despite the cold temperatures and the lack of sunshine, this cornflower decided to bloom in November, which is really not typical for cornflowers (at least not in my corner of the world)... and so I thought this brave little warrior deserves some spotlight here...

Have a wonderful week everyone and perhaps a nice little surprise, too!

November Blues

November is really getting at me at the moment... everything seems so dark, and as much as I love tree silhouettes, I do long for colours. Or at least for the sun.

But I'll spare you a tirade of whining and sighing here - I'll be looking for something more colourful for my next post, or maybe I'll even discover a passion for black and white...

Have a wonderful week everyone!

A Good-Bye

This is a good-bye to an October filled with fog and rain and even snow, and a cold that has turned into a nasty sinus infection.

But there was also sunshine and and the most wonderful and amazing colours.

I hope your October was a good one - now let's see what November has in store for us!
