Yes, I have finished the turquoise quilt! But before I give it to my Mum, I don’t want to publish any photos. This would ruin the surprise. This time next Friday I will be with my Mum, after not seeing her for a year. So, I am publishing a few flower close-ups from in my garden. Enjoy!
And after the blossom …..
And some crazy snails – climbing up a chain link fence. For a better view!?
Over the last few weeks I did not have time to work on patchwork and quilting projects. So in this post I want to share a few photos. With morning impressions when walking the dog and a some flower closeups. Enjoy!
The nearby park where I go sometimes walking with Dotti in the afternoon.
And a few closeups of the flowers growing in the park.
Hope you have enjoyed browsing through my small photo gallery! Have a wonderful start in to the summer – at least for all us living in the northern hemisphere. Or a wonderful start in to the winter for all down under.
When I went to Prague a few weeks ago, I passed over the Charles Bridge on a wonderful sunny autumn morning. The light was incredible and there were hardly any tourists on the Charles Bridge, I just had to take a few photos. Here a selection of my favorite ones :
The National Theater with the river Vltava on a foggy morning :
And a few autumn impressions from Prague 6 – Stresovice district :
Since we had company holidays in August and the office was closed, this gave me the opportunity to visit my mother – especially as I found a direct flight from Murcia airport to Prague. Unfortunately only during the summer months. For the winter season it means waiting at airports for connecting flights.
This time I would like to share with you some great sites in Prague that were built in the 1930’s. All are in functionalism style. Below Palace Ara, also called Palace Pearl.
Some hidden treasures in Prague are the many passages under office buildings connecting streets. Below the passage next to the National Bank – today called the Passage of Czech Design. Many Czech designers exhibit their work in showcases on both sides of this passage.
The next passage is called Black Rose and is situated on the street Na Prikopech near Wenceslas Square. Here you can find many shops, diverse coffee shops and benches where you can just sit down and relax from sightseeing or shopping.
After sightseeing you need something good for the tummy : a visit to a coffee shop – for example La Boheme Cafe. Here you can not only enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or tea, but also purchase coffee and tea from small producers.
Autumn is slowly coming and the berries get their wonderful colors.
And as last I would like got show you one more place in Prague – the Malvazinky cemetery. Situated on a hill in the district of Prague 5. When you enter the cemetery you can feel the tranquility of the place, with many tall old trees and ivy plants on the ground.
Hope you have enjoyed my short sightseeing tour in Prague, I would love to hear from you and have a nice day,
Once more I was visiting my Mum in Prague. I had super summer weather, sunshine and blue skies. Since I am living nearly 20 years in Spain, I am not anymore used to see such an abundance of green hues in the nature. Visiting different parks in the district of Prague 6 I found sooooo many greens that I couldn´t resist to take loads of photos. But lets start from the beginning : my favourite panorama view is, was and shall always stay the Hradcany – Prague Castle that overlooks the river Vltava nad Charles Bridge.
