Seductive like the song of the silence in the night

A view on flowers like you have never seen them before...

Painting With a Brush of Light

Two, three buds,
four flowers, waiting
A hand dips the brush
and paints with morning light

Early in the morning. Nature waits for the sun's first rays…
Life is painted with a brush of light.

The previous owner of our house had a huge fondness for rhododendrons. So we have them in many shapes and sizes, and with a huge variety of colors: from white and yellow (an Azalea) to lilac and deep purple. Consequently, we have many bumblebees in the garden, because bumblebees are not affected by the poison in these plants, to which several other bee species are susceptible. Humans are not very sensitive to that poison, and besides the fact that the Rhododendron has several medicinal uses, we like the tea of the leaves (fresh or dried) very much.

Spring Morning - Longing for that morning I remember the garden where I used to walk Alone among the flowers as the sun rose into a calm spring day

Longing for that morning
I remember the garden

Alone among the flowers
as the sun rose
into a calm spring day

A walk through a flower garden, early on a spring morning. Musing amidst the flowers, is it a memory, or a dream?

Longing flower, gold splashes on fragile petals, dancing in the sun's first light It's early in the morning. A beautiful iris opens its flower and turns toward the sun. The petals bathe themselves in light, seeming to dance in slow motion.

Alone among the flowers

Weeks later, the allium has finished blooming. Her exuberant colors fade to an earthy brown, seed pods form where the purple has sacrificed itself so the seeds can ripen.

And then the seed pods open, the seeds slowly becoming visible, until the flower is ready to release them and the earth takes care of them.

Novice: unfolding leaves in spring, new life begins

Novice

Spring is a time of amazement. Amazement at the speed with which plants grow, develop flower buds, form leaves. And from the smallest of seeds, in only a few weeks, a plant germinates, greedily seeking light, reaching for the sky.

Longing for that morning,

I remember the garden

Alone among the fading flowers

A walk through a flower garden, early on an autumn morning. Musing amidst the faded allium, is it a memory, or a dream?

As a background for this artwork I used a fragment of a watercolor painting by the fantastic Swedish painter Ingela Wallgren Lindgren

Delicate faded flowers of weed, untouched by the wind.

Wild At Heart My smile may be smooth, inside I am still wild at heart The tulip. A cultivated flower, sleek and smooth, that in general doesn’t really appeal to me. But even such a flower – perfected to human taste – must have a wild side, which we normally don’t see, don’t you think? The results of a search into the heart of the tulip in 3 artworks, an answer to the question if there is still something of the original wild variety in the flower as we know it…

A plant of which I have made several series of minimalistic photos is the giant hogweed. The seed pods of the faded plant look like spaceships, ready to disappear into the light after they have released their seeds.

A quiet autumn morning in our garden. It seems to be a beautiful day, the sky is without clouds. The last flowering plants awaken, shivering in the chilly breeze.

Lavender Fusion

The flowers move slowly,
colors and scents mingle
The senses of summer

A warm summer day. Colors, scents and sounds blend into a slow rhythm that undulates over the land.
Nature slowly moves along with this summer song.

A flower, ready
for the morning sun,
to unfold and bloom

Tiny wild flowers, two of them already fading, one waiting to explode in beautiful colors...

Dazzled Into The Light The sound of a light breeze Cherry blossom petals dazzeld into the light Spring approaches maturity. A warm, gentle breeze blows the petals of fading cherry blossoms into the light.
