pilea shippment

in times like this
we have to share more and not make money out of everything we can
there are so many refugees here in Europe from Syria
and in other corners of the world
people put their pilea on ebay
how weird is that

pilea is the plant to share and not to sell
she makes so many babies, once you have it
you don't know where to get rid of them

cuttings were send to UK, Italy and USA

from Lawren I got a nice parcel
included some more jetons from "Le nine jaune" in a color I didn't have
a beautiful collage as well

otiorhynchus was on my selenicereus grandiflorus
obesa is blooming
elephant ear as well
stilllifes in the courtyard of Lohaus
finds from the fleamarket

I really would like to see the garden of Frida Kahlo in New Yorks Botanical Garden
in 2009 I started to make my apartment, terass and studio more green
my inspiration was Frida
I collected plants on my journeys, mostly looking for shape and weird species
I already have quite a lot like Frida

tiny flowers

outside and inside
tiny flowers
so delicate
but stronger then I thought

it's still not easy in my shade garden to get a lot of flowers
but I'm happy with the few ones who come

rescued cactus

gerettet hab ich sie
die zwei kurligen Kakteen sprich Euphorbias
beim kringloopwinkel in Mortsel

der nicht besonders hübsche ist eine Euphorbia obesa
der Grösse nach sicher 20-30 Jahre alt
die wachsen so langsam, dass man echt nichts mitkriegt
Wurzeln hatte er kaum noch
hier der gleiche

der zweite
auch eine Euphorbie, Spezies noch nicht gefunden
hatte leider gar keine Wurzeln mehr
nur noch einen Knollen
ich rede ihm gut zu
denn ansonsten sieht er recht stark aus

oilpainting by my dear friend A.
postcard from Johanna Tagada
a 70ies Hippie dress I like to wear at home

-the pink of the paintings is in reality much softer then on the photo-

compositions with "Le Nain Jaune"

Le Nain Jaune is a game
but I just like the jetons
making compositions for the form of a handbag
playing around

spring cleaning I

this time of the year
I always feel that I have too many things
that my apartment is too cluttered
that I need space in my studio
that I have to get rid of things which I don't even remember that I have

so I'm cleaning and organizing one room by one
the windows got washed by M. after 9 years living in this apartment
I'm so happy

late winter light in my studio

the hours between 2 and 5 pm. in my studio
Miezi likes it too
difficult to work with cat on my table
it's only around this time of the year
that I get that much light in the afternoon
spring is close
