dc COAT (No 165)



My favorite coat:
knee-lenght, waisted and with a nice shaped, big collar and coat-pockets
Fly front and even the belt is modest.





 I would add a brooch sometimes or a belt buckle just as an accessory
– and these pink of the gloves for the coat would be nice!




I have collected some twigs of willow catkin 
(their days were numbered... but I temporized the theme of dear Patrice this week ;-)







Ha! and her theme fits perfectly! It's COAT. 
Because of the changing temperatures in April (and May) sometimes I wish a coat, that's soft and cuddly like made of the catkins (and no animal has to die for my wish)






btw: the colors of rhubarb are my favorite, too.




I am late, sorry for that.
Wish you a cosy Sunday evening (Mother natures douses the trees here)
 I will come to your coats, now, via my sweet friend Patrice,
our hostess of this week's drawing challenge No 165! thank you!



PS: even a kind of coat: 
Print 'Hanami' by Patrice 
'Rose and bug' by Ritva Palander
Booklet 'Blossoms' Hermine van Dijck

Ablenkung / Diversion






















Das Licht ist so schön
das Grün so zart und der Himmel so blau
drinnen muss dringend
geputzt werden
jetzt ist auch noch der Mond da
- den Auftrag mache ich morgen fertig
hoffentlich

/

The light is so very beautiful
the green very dainty and the sky very blue
inside I have to clean
urgent
now the moon comes out
on top of that
- I will settle the big job tomorrow
hopefully



(and the dc No 165... COAT at Patrice's this weekend)

drawing challenge No 164: GRASS




In my family we love to have a picnic
and I loved to play outside with my sister




Imagine a cave in a clump of flowering shrubs behind the house.
Like in a huge nest my sister and me padded out the ground with fresh tufts of grass, 
built a carpet of it (the adults weren't happy 'bout destroying the lawn)
We played 'neighbourhood' with our friends in the next bushes: we visited us, barefoot, brought some fruits and Schnökerkram, sweets, from the little corner shop.






For this week's drawing challenge No 164 dear Veronica is our host. Her theme is GRASS. 
I have taken my old linocut of green roses {made it in 1993, you find more of it here} have drawn with oil crayon a tuft of grass and added soil.

Strandtreppe, 2015


My sister Irena lives over 20 years in Canada. 
She and Frédéric came for a visit to Hamburg (Mom's birthday. It was her voiceover in a short film by the ecology group in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg, started with: "The grass is green, but toxic..." in the early 80th). They are already back in Montréal, now. I have padded the ground of my heart with fresh sweet memories...





Thank you for your visit. 
I wish you a sunny Sunday, outside and indoors!
(in Montréal und Hamburg... and around the world)

For more GRASS please come to Veronica's pretty place

update: {Ostern (Mond) Reflexion} + new dc theme




Auf dem Land habe ich darauf gewartet, dass der Vollmond aufgeht
At the countryside I have waited, that the full moon rises
.




In der Zwischenzeit fand ich ein paar andere Reflexionen
Int the meantime I found some other reflexions
.




und dann, plötzlich
and then, suddenly
:



la luna






Am nächsten Morgen rezitierten eine Freundin und ich 
wie aus einem Mund den Osterspaziergang von Goethes Faust
At the next morning a friend and me recited with one voice 
the Outside of the Gate from Goethe's Faust
:


"
(...) Denn sie sind selber auferstanden
For they themselves have now arisen (...)
"



Wieder Zuhause haben wir unser Familientreffen
Back home we have our family reunion



Hope you are fine, too, dear friends.
I will come to your Keys from the drawing challenge soon! Nosy nosy!

update: Next host of the drawing challenge (No. 164) is Veronica, again (thank you, Dear). 
Her new theme is GRASS for this weekend, the 11th + 12th of April
Say "yes" here, please.
