late summer


















I really enjoy this time of the year; still warm and sunny, but autumn gently approaching;
berries and seeds in abundance :)

my winter stock














I was making a winter stock of my favorite rhubarb-apricot jam; eventually I think I like this one the most, despite my earlier experiments
... 
and afterwards went for a walk; I could feel already a sense of fall in the air, maybe because so much fluff whirled around;
lovely seed bunches from the ash

eddy













I'm so happy in this new place! even though there are quite many boxes spreat all over the appartement and many books  that still need a proper place...
but it is fun here, with lots of natural light and above all this place invites to create!
I finished a new smyrna, not really a swirl, but a variation of;
lets call him 'eddy' :^)
nephew's butterfly collection 























what are eddies?
our Eddy
happy weekend all :^)

into a small paradise 2, at my sister's place


















love the smell of beehives and dried grasses when it gets really hot, and also the resin from the pine trees, for me these odors represent summer and vacation more than floral scents do,
don't know why but they produce some kind of happyness hormone

large bowl of cherries :^)

I was reading a book, illustrated by Edgard Tytgat
