The day, water, sun, moon, night - I do not have to purchase these things with money.

And the day came...

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud 
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Like a string of beads...

Like a string of beads
joins our live
day to day
some are shining and bright
other inconspicuous and small
concealed some seem
and sometimes seems everything
confused in a knot
but nevertheless it is
a wonderful

If all seems in vain
gives us comfort a prayer
are helpful the beads

"Beads" is the word of this week at Our Beautiful World.
This is my inspiration.

Wild heart

It’s not easy to explain to those who don’t see the wild in her, but every day is like being born again into the wonder of her strong heart beating & a full-throated knowing that she’s here to be alive.

Friday Five and garden

Good morning,
it's time for Willy Nilly Friday Five and I want to join again.


It is late summer and in the air is a slight haze of autumn.
And another smell.
I enjoy aware and grateful the beautiful days, knowing that they will end.


Last week we had  a visit from our friend and were able to take a trip by his car again.
These are especially happy moments for me.
We were at this lake and I really enjoyed swimming there.
Not every summer I have the opportunity to get to a lake for a swim.
I very like swimming and it was for me a very special and rare joy.


Some new plants.
These grasses will be an ornament even in winter.
I have long wanted to have such ornamental grasses and now I could buy it.


I want to transform a part of the garden.
Some years I could grow anything, but it's a green mess now and I no longer like that.

If I see this garden, I think, so I want it too!
I want to plant only the grasses and some herbs.


Yesterday I bought this colorful pots.
They were on sale and I could not resist.
One with a plant, two without. But I have plants enough for them.
I am often seduced by beautiful colors ...

Have a nice weekend all :-)

Stairs are your teacher; they teach you to be stronger. Love your teacher 
and every time life puts some stairs before you, accept them as a present!

- Mehmet Murat ildan -

Stairs, are they going up or are they going down? 
They’re so confusing! If love were a physical thing, it would be stairs.
