Edelweiss about to bloom
The view from my balcony, May 7, 2013
Here’s the view from my balcony this afternoon.
Also, some views of my balcony garden.
And some more petunias about to bloom very soon:
The humble petunia: so much happiness in such a small, cheap, easy-to-grow package.

I like the nocturnal color palette.
Woman Made Gallery focuses on the work of women artists. Check out their website here.
Today I’ve been invited to Brezice again to visit Ozara. They’ll be picking up trash along the road, and I will support them in this unglamorous but environmentally friendly task.
In the meantime, I leave you with one of my recent experiments in close-up floral photography. This one turned out fairly well in spite of my rotten little camera.
I loved primroses even before I knew what they were called. They aren’t native to the western U.S., so when I came to Europe I had never seen them before. The way they suddenly appear in the grass and turn it into what looks like a green and yellow Persian carpet is magical.
No time to post, but here are some spring flowers I saw yesterday.
