From Today's Walk
There is a rose called Stephen's Big Purple which is more pink than purple. There is a rose called "Wild Blue Yonder" which is purple, not blue.
And now there is this Lithodora diffusa, with the common name "purple gromwell". It is frequently found as a solid color blue, but sometimes there are blue and white flowers. I found these today as I was out and about, enjoying the clear weather with very little breeze.Things like this puzzle me. But then I'm easily puzzled, I suppose.
Just like a wisteria to keep growing and growing lol. It is evolving just added in a few more leaves to paint in tomorrow then maybe it will be completed. Click on images to view better.
16”x36” acrylic on canvas
Available when completed 💜
Another shot for #selfcare#marchmeetthemaker - it's absolutely essential to have regular doses of beauty and nature. Preferably in a stunner of a garden.

“Colours of spring 3- #klesha : obstacle(s) in Yoga“
No, it is not lack of flexibility, tight hamstrings or herniated disc. Even if we limit to postural Yoga, without going beyond asana level, the biggest obstacles are in the mind.
Lack of patience, confidence in Yoga and a teacher, humility, mental balance, self enquire reflect also on the body and limit the progress in Yoga way more than muscles, bands or fascias.
Yoga is not just glorified gymnastics, the unfortunate alienation of postural Yoga from it scientific, psychological and philosophical base that continues since beginning of XX century, leads many over eager practitioners into uncertain, even dangerous realms. The students are impatient, desiring to perform postures for which they are not ready physically neither mental. Too many want to be gurus , hardly any to be humble, open minded students. Greed is what corrupts too many able teachers, schools to become “yoga instructors” factories and thus producing “teachers” who are themselves not ready for the real Yoga practice, even less to assist others.
No matter if you just started practicing Yoga , do it since decades or even experienced teacher, there is always place for self examination, evaluation, keeping healthy distance to what and how we do. Observing ourselves critically, questioning and not covering weaknesses with arrogance. Even if we manage to fool entire world there remains one we cannot really deceive, our own self.
Last not least the Yoga world needs less #vinyasa and more #vinaya 🕉 तत् सत्. #flor#fiore#primavera#blueflowers#flowerstagram#purpleflowers#flowermagic#yogastudies#yogatechnique#bokehlicious#yogaawakening#colorsplash#naturelover#naturepicture#ournaturedays#sonyzeiss#sonya6000#innerwisdom#yogaoffthemat#yogasutra#spring#springflowers#yogaknowledge#yogawisdom#awakeningyoga#yogadeutschland
All year long this place is beautiful. The drive there doesn’t feel so bad with pink and white blossoms opening alongside the road. 🌸🍃

Can anyone name these flowers? The one on the left is clematis and the one on the right I’ve been referring to as, “that pointy blue flower I took pictures of last year.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These are two of the new “Impressions of Spring” collection coming in April-smaller paintings and looser strokes to celebrate Spring!! I wanted to spend some time in the next few posts telling you about the inspiration for this collection, and it starts with Jane, who is 85 and who has a secret, walled in garden that she and her husband spent decades perfecting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last year, I spent a lot of time in that garden, coming and going from Jane’s house, sitting there reading the paper to her, listening to audiobooks as the sun shone down. Once a little bird hopped from a tree to a table and right onto my leg! Squirrels and chipmunks came and went, and a deer even ate right from her hand (Jane is magic with animals, you see.)
Nearly all of the blooms I painted are based on spending time in that garden last year as it woke up and transitioned from a very long winter (remember how much it snowed last March!?) into the most luscious Spring, where nearly every day I would walk into Jane’s living room and announce which new thing had bloomed, and we would walk around the garden examining as crocuses gave way to lilacs which made room for rhododendrons and Roses of Sharon and peonies and irises and clematis and more.
I’m so excited to show you all of these new pieces, I hope you’re excited, too!! ☺️ (And if you would let me know the name of the blue pointy flower I would appreciate it!! 😂)
“A handwritten letter carries a lot of risk. It's a one-sided conversation that reveals the truth of the writer. Furthermore, the writer is not there to see the reaction of the person he writes to, so there's a great unknown to the process that requires a leap of faith. The writer has to choose the right words to express his sentences, and then, once he has sealed the envelope, he has to place those thoughts in the hands of someone else, trusting that the feelings will be delivered, and that the recipient will understand the writer's intent. How childish to think that could be easy”.
