Beautiful but kind of stupid flower. The bloom grows so big that it break down and... fall to the ground. But maybe that's the whole idea. Maybe it is that way it plans for future generations? Anna

Den blomstertid nu kommer – Flower time

Around this time in Sweden blooms in every corner of nature. It's is stunning beauty everywhere. A Swedish old hymn describe this time very well. So well that the hymn is a standard hymn in every graduation.  My favourite version of the hymn is a soul/funk/blues version from the 80's with Lill Lindfors and Nils Landgren.… Continue reading Den blomstertid nu kommer – Flower time

Fun with pine cones

If you have a few of these You can do this And believe it or not, but they actually work just as real flowers They shut down if it's cold and rainy. When the sun comes back they open up again Anna


Flower unknown name

I was supposed to make a small tulip painting, but I don't think it looks like a tulip so this is an unknown flower with no name. I'm not great in painting things out of memory. I just remembered the red color and the green leaves. I have to practice more, I realise that. Anna

Soon tuliptime :)

They are almost wide awake, our tulips. After a period of back to winter temps the sun shined today and gave some warmth back to us. I wait for tulips to bloom, then it's Spring for real here! Spring flowers are so lovely 🙂 My take on tulips (monotypi-teknik) Anna

Gult är fult?/yellow ugliness?

In Swedish "ugly" rhymes on "yellow". It's not at all the same in English. But we say "yellow is ugly" in Swedish, as a phrase. I don't know where we got the idea from. Yellow is a beautiful color. Here's a poor yellow flower we often say we dislike, but I think it deserves to… Continue reading Gult är fult?/yellow ugliness?

What are you staring at?

What if flowers could talk. Maybe they do, just not in our human languages. What if they both think and talk. What do they say about us humans staring at them? Anna    Tulip from our garden 🙂
