Chatting in the park




Outside it's raining. I remember:
At Saturday eve I sat with a dear friend
 on the water place in the park
ate some scoops of ice cream and fruits with cream
and had a spirited conversation
without beeing able to talk in one language

Imagine! ( even the sundae ;))





An intimate talk in the park
 is sometimes like a garden party
of hearts

ac #195: GARDEN PARTY




I woke up in the morning
and knew this would be a nice day





to overcome fences 
and find warm hospitality





After the banquet together with very nice strangers
we are no strangers anymore
When I move home everything was shining
in glory





GARDEN PARTIES makes you happy!

Tammie has taken the theme of Melodye
for this weekend's Art Challenge

I am still living between boxes... so instead of being at home 
in the Castle at the Eisenbach I went out for an adventurous gathering …

Please come over to Tammie's place to find more GARDEN PARTIES

Thank you for your visit. Next week Patrice will be our host!

Love, Ariane. Rose

AC #194: SKY|SKIES




I started at the first tree of the botanical garden
{a huge plane tree Platanus x hispanica, planted in 1821 by Prof. Lehmann}

and I wrap myself in a palm leave, wearing it as a skirt, s.a.. You see, I am in a funny mood.
The whole week I felt like on cloud nine, especially in the open. Surely the influences coming from the south... with nice temperatures around 24°C 




Sometimes the veils raises



and the sky is an ocean
{of love}





I am back home
after the fire in my castle
the Castle at the Eisenbach

It is close to the skies
and it feels very good


It feels even very good to find back to a kind of routine, 
the sweet routine of the Art Challenge (former Drawing Challenge)

Eric of Cerulean is the host of the 194th AC with his theme SKY|SKIES

Between all the moving boxes I have taken my camera to touch the unlimited sky. You find more of it over his place! Thank you for hosting, Eric! And thank you for your visit, dear friends.

Wish you a beautiful weekend, happy Whitsun. 


Veni, Sancte Spiritus

Ich hatte ein zauberhaftes, langes Wochenende voller Lachen, Singen und herzlicher Begegnungen:
in der Hamburger Kunsthalle (meine kleine Führung vom Samstag halte ich noch für verbesserungswürdig ;-)) und beim großen Familientreffen, dann Muttertags-Rhabarberkuchen und Art Tea Shop in der Bel Étage bei Lili Nalovi und Jesko Willert mit Maman und ältester Tochter. Das reinste Vergnügen!


I had an enchanting, long weekend full of laughter, singing and warm connections: 
at the Hamburger Kunsthalle (my little lead through the collection is in need for improvement ;-)) and at a big family gathering, then Mother's Day-rhubarb tarte and Art Tea Shop at the Bel Étage of Lili Nalovi and Jesko Willert together with Maman and eldest daughter. A pleasure!


Hope you're fine! Wish you a wonderful start into a new week :)

Love, Ariane. Rose
