    Plant life | Nomad daffodils

    When I looked out onto the balcony yesterday, the daffodils had gotten a little sad over night. So I took them in …


    There, there, nice and cozy on the bedroom window sill.

    … and today …

    … happy! Please disregard the dirty window – it’s what I’ve been doing, too.

    Wishing you a good start into this week. Let the sunshine in.

    Project of the day | Staging Spring

    I did get the balcony fixed up. Then I went to a store that as I discovered yesterday had locally grown hydrangea. So far, so spring. Then, on the way back – guess what – it started snowing. It would appear that sometimes wishful thinking isn’t enough (who knew?).

    Since desperate times require desperate measures, I resorted to what any home-story-teller who is worth their grain does anyway: I faked it. Rather: tried. As will become apparent in a moment, this is probably one of the worse attempts at staging spring. So … here goes nothing.

    Yeah, that table cloth under the hydrangea is not ironed. Neither is the table-cloth on the table, which is actually a curtain. I mean, the table-cloth is actually a curtain, not the table.


    I must say, those teacup candles are versatile. I need more so I can have them EVERYWHERE.


    Hyacinths. Just noticed that one of them is molding a little bit. Meh.


    Hello beautiful!


    Or should I say: hello bluetiful?


    Less elegant, more playful. You might say this balcony’s style is all over the place. I choose to call it „eclectic“.


    Unless I don’t show you the picture I just showed you, and show you this instead. Doesn’t work with real life visitors, though. Unless I make them leave the balcony frequently so I can rearrange things according to what they’re going to look at next. Seems like a lot of work, though, so … probably not.


    Now we’re getting somewhere with the spring feeling!


    So … another picture of the same just from a slightly different angle.
    And another! OK, I’m done.
