Cee’s topic for this week: one single flower …. such a joyful topic.
Both Oscar and I love flowers … so delicate and beautiful objects for us. And they bring such a joy to both of us … and they don’t move around either.
Where ever we go in the world we always meet many stunning beauties.
“Flowers are like friends;
They bring colour and joy to your world.”
Not only us that like this “Pretty in Pink” !!! Once again a beauty that we met home in Sweden. In Simrishamn which situated at the southeastern tip of Sweden, is the heart of Österlen in Skåne. With its approximately 6,000 inhabitants, the coastal town is not a particularly big place – but it is full of charm. Simrishman was my mum’s town during the last 6 years of her life.
“Flowers don’t tell, they show.”
The summer’s last rose (December) in Tbilisi, Georgia – it kept us company during our lunch at Cafe Flowers. Overlooking Rike Park and the Bridge of Peace, it is a great place to have food and enjoy a stunning view of the Tbilisi Old town – December 2018
“Where flowers bloom so does hope.”

A garden beauty that we spent some days together with at the lovely Hotell Spelabäcken in Skanör. Skanör and Falsterbo are two medieval towns joined together on the elongated reef-like western part of the Falsterbo Peninsula, in the most southern part of Sweden. For millions of years, nature has transformed the area into a place of real beauty where birds migrate, seals swim, and people relax on the glorious white sands or walk along the dunes.
“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.”
Gerard De Nerval
We just love fresh flowers and linen napkins in the table setting at the restaurants we visit. This blue little flower gave us joy at “Hamnkrogen” that is located in Landskrona’s little fishing and yacht harbour, Borstahusen – July 2017
“Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom.”
Big is Beautiful!!!!! And this stunning Giant water lily we met at Paradiesgaten in Potsdam, Germany – September
I have always said that Cee’s can talk to the flowers because she captures their beauty like no-one else and this week two challenges – she has proved it to me once again.
Thank you, Cee!
For this post I just have to chose “Waltz of the Flowers” from the ballet “The Nutcracker” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, written in 1982 and with the libretto is adapted from E. T. A. Hoffmann’s story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King”.
One of my absolute favourite ballets that I must have seen in at least 15 times. While living in the UK I treated myself to a magical Christmas gift most years; the English National Ballet at the London Coliseum with over 100 dancers on stage. The last time I enjoyed it was at the Det Kongelige Teater in Copenhagen 2 years ago.
