Part of the furniture

Was at the Rijksmuseum monday before last, with the little girl. She wanted to see the renovated building and the NightWatch she’d seen on TV. I wanted to reconnect to a lot of Dutch history. So we went, stood in line, and were allowed in via the new entrance. Which is much nicer than the […]

Emblem

Cut a tulip in half and scanned it to see what would happen. Did a few photoshop things to it, and now I have a tulip emblem. Use it for applique, maybe? Have had new inspiration about quilting from the book ‘Contemporary Quilts’ by Sandra Mesch, check here and here. Used to do quilts before going […]

Inclination

Am still searching for a way to capture the ultimate tulip-ness. Today I used photoshop to deconstruct photos from Tulip ‘Tarda’, which I grow in containers – and very successfully, too. More flowers every year, my kind of bulb ;) I like the idea of being part of history – from the Dutch Tulip Craze onwards, we’ve […]

Marry

These days I visit a museum, a gallery or another place where High Art is to be found on a weekly basis – please let me never get to a point where I take this for granted! Participating in the Art of Making Art Exhibitions remains a very special thing, to be hugely enjoyed. Being fundraiser for […]

Packets of information

Gardening is – in its core – an exercise in living in pleated time: the flowers-planned are just as active in my mind as the flowers-present. These bulbs are very much flowers-planned: interesting little packets of information. I find it very difficult to put into words the feelings that bulbs inspire. Went to the poets to find some (words, that is). […]

Telescopic generations

Tulips in decline – mold, aphids and all. Still beautiful! So how did mold happen? Answer: mold spores travel through air. And how did the lice happen? The tulips are, after all, in my studio, so not easy to migrate to. Checked Wiki, and the sex life of the plant louse is just what one […]

Dead

Bulb Planting Time Last night he said the dead were dead And scoffed my faith to scorn; I found him at a tulip bed When I passed by at morn. “O ho!” said I, “the frost is near| And mist is on the hills, And yet I find you planting here Tulips and daffodils.” “‘Tis […]

For various reasons today seems ever so bleak and cold – existence pared down to its minimum. To cheer me up, and remind me of spring coming, I visited my archive of garden photo’s and picked a few that have promise.
