Too many things that are not important in life act like very important things.
They screem and shout with loud voices, like ringtones, pop-ups, and advertisements.
Always hurry and demanding, even manipulating.

The really important things, mostly whisper or do not speak at all.
They seem to like to hide so that you have to search for.
which are to me: treasures, peace, insight, wisdom and love.

Driving along the highway

the fast-running-food drive in

dancing a rope

Turning on a path of which I don't know where it goes and if I like it.
It feels wobly and scary, kind of dancing on a rope, or walking on water.

And yes I do like water, but don't like to fall into when I don't plan to

Just before getting dark, the finch and the golden crested wren are taking a bath, before going to sleep.

Monday, December 19, 2005


Though there is still lying a little bit of real snow, I poured out 1 packet of instantsnow outside on the doves, who are posted at my door, under the shadow of the passiflora.
To my amazement when making the photo, I saw that there was a flower on the garland of the passiflora and some buds planning to open up.

Instant snow

Last week while looking around in a greenhouse between all the X-mas articles...,
I found instantsnow in little bags. Immediately I remembered my dream about buying instantsnow, which to me was very weird and silly...dreaming such a thing.
I mentioned about that dream on my weblog on august 7
snow 7 aug
I couldn't resist buying 2 little bags. The only difference was that this snow had to be mixed with water, not so with the dreamsnow.
Later it dawned on me that this snow too was packed in zipperbags...

icy parcels

It has been snowing again a little, and I can't help but to be fascinated and in wonder about that again and again...and... again...

Icy parcels of cristals, diamonds, gems and other precious stones which are lying everywhere.
Not for sale... only there for the moment.

twirl dance

Tonight it has been raining and wind blowing.
Most leaves that were still hanging on to their trees have decided to let go and jump.
twirling and flying thru the air on their journey down to unknown places.

The wind playing along and making them dance...

bathing leaves

Even the autumnleaves think it would be nice to take a bath in my birdbath.

Wednesday, December 14, 2005


Glistening and shining on branches, leaves or here on an iron ring, the drops grow, and grow till getting too heavy and then fall... and then start all over again.

Tuesday, December 13, 2005


The robin is almost camouflaged as an autumnleaf, which are lying everywhere now in my garden.
He is hardly to be seen while he is trying to pick the remains of the seeds fallen down between the leaves... out of the birdhouse.
Sometimes I call him my 'autumnleaf'.

smiling moon

driving home late, getting dark already, not knowing what to do... for my blog, pondering...

then the moon smiled at me, veiled with a little cloud

ladybird on air

It looks always a bit funny , when a ladybird is on air.
It looks a little bit something like this...

glued on glass

The beatle still sits on my glass window, and I managed to make a better picture of his belly, using flash. In order to better see how his legs are attached to his body, and I wonder how he can sit all night and day on slippery glass...without getting stiff and getting aching muscles.
To me its amazing and wondering!

Ladybird on window

This morning again there was sitting/sleeping a ladybird on my window.
Don't know why they like to sit there, maybe its a nice place having a view inside & outside my house.
First it looked like sleeping, but as I moved around with my cam, he opened his red wing a little, so I could see a little of his underwing, with which he actually flies. the red wing is more a protection for the black-wing under.
Its perfectly folded there. but opens up when going off to flight.

gave them sunflowerseeds

This far I've got, and now kind of stuck, in the process.
So, have to put it aside, to get some distance and then maybe later I know what to do next...

gave them sunfowerseeds to feed on...

worked all morning on the first sketch and beginning of the watercolour of the nuthatch=('boomklever').
Decided later to make two of them on the vine. The couple had last year a nest in one of my tree-houses...

eye to eye

Here is one of my favorite birds..looking eye to eye...


What happened to the sky-photo's that 'everybody' sent me on 28-11-05?
Well only one person did sent some nice pics, but they were not of that same day.
I wanted to make a kind of jigsaw compilation of all your sky's together...but that didn't work out..

But maybe you remember how your sky looked like that very day,
and might be worth remembering...

golden leaves

The leaves on the beech-tree are extremely golden today, with the sun and lights playing through the leaves. and the sound of the wind gently rustling through.
