Just compare today’s header with February’s! Mind-boggling.

Isn’t nature such a dazzling, spectacular, and beautiful power?

Here we are, already in the middle of 2019 and sweating in a crazy heatwave in Europe. And it is time for grapevines in June! I’d like to present you with some eye candy. What happened since May?

The flower buds have grown of course and opened up. Hooray!

If you are new to my blog – welcome! I have a series on the growing of grapevines this year and you may want to check out the other months in order to fully appreciate the stunning development. Simply click on the month: February, March, April, MayJuly, August, September, October.

What do you guess grapevines’ flowers look like?
White flowers you can see from afar? Maybe colourful ones? Blooms with wide petals insects can sit on like for example in apple trees? The very small green conically shaped form you see in the pics above? Read more

Greetings from Afro-Pfingsten

It is that time of the year again… you hear drums, your body and especially your hips move with the rhythm, you smell fire, fish, and sunscreen, you see more colourfully dressed people than usual (thank goodness!), and you see smiles and content faces everywhere.

It is when Africa takes centre stage in a Swiss city.

It is Afro-Pfingsten Festival in Winterthur.

She stole my heart. Do you see the elderly lady looking out the window in the top middle image? I dared to take a picture without asking her as she had this big contagious smile in her face moving her body with the rhythm of Ma belle chérie we were all listening to (on stage in the photo to the right of her).

Let’s do it like her: Keep smiling and dancing forever!

Are you in the mood now to listen to some African rhythms? Then watch the videos in my other Afro-Pfingsten post.

Warm greetings and have a wonderful (long) weekend,

Daniela

An eye on grapevines in May

Here they come: the photos of the vineyard in May in my this year’s series of the grapevines’ growth.

Have you missed the other months? No worries, simply click here: February, March, April. You best start in February to enjoy the unfolding of nature’s magic.

The vineyard is now lush, the grapevines much longer and leafy, and the flower buds more numerous. daniela, danielamühlheim, ladybird, nature, abundance, earth, explore, blog, switzerland, grapevine, wine, vineyard, spring
