well, i´m not that into Fall
not yet
so i won´t join the praise of this dooming glorious season
to me it smells rotten
brings the cold (and cold related pains - maybe i need to move to an other climate)
the eternal fog in those areas near a big river is literally depressing
and always worse than expected - it hits me every time
and i can only apprechiate the morbide side o f it
to me sunflowers are only bearable in their dying state
also got some strawflowers at the farmers market
(judging by the looks the lady who sold them gave me, 
those are only supposed to be bought by the elderly)
put them in an odd ice cream vessel from ZIERRAT AND GOLD
and might use them in a couple of months in a flower arrangement for my grandmothers grave
(last time at the hardwear store i found some hot glued on top of some cacti
so i might do something similar - put them onto some bare branches)
to drive all the other ambitious grave decorators mad
joyous times
i guess it´s okay with my grandmother
she used to have tea with rum after her visit to the graveyard on All Saints Day
probably not only due to the cold weather
"dear lord, the things i´ve seen..."
but i made a FALL GREETING CARD for you after all
and started putting all those bulbs in the soil
got best quality ones from the Netherlands
they seem to burst with life any minute
and those grapes are really beautiful - grown in our tiny vinyard
went to a excellent exhibiton of HEINZ BRAUN
and i guess my thoughts had nothing to do with the shown work
but i had to urge to create an outlet for the crazy, the unfiltered, not so pretty
do stuff that doesn´t need to be representable
my own delicious secret
an article on the sadness of gen-y on MAN REPELLER
(guess we should try to achive our personal best instead of the over all best)
(used to get in a bad mood looking at perfect online lifes
even before joining facebook and the blogging world
when i do so now i sometimes reach out to those who seemingly have it all
and tell them how impressed i am
always turns out they´re very human after all (and mostly very nice))
a nice APRON
oh, in case someone wants some geranium cuttings
i´m cutting down all of my old plants and would be happy to send some your way

    1. das klingt gut
      wenn etwas klar geworden ist

      ich mag ihn allmählich auch
      den herbst

  5. ha, die sonnenblumen nicke ich ab. dem blühenden gelb kann ich ehrlich auch nichts abgwinnen. ansonsten bin ich ja etwas anders herbstgelagert, wie du weißt ;) ach, und der cremebecher: ich habe es nicht schöner ewartet ...

    1. bei bestem wetter gewöhne ich mich an ihn:)
      der eisbecher macht spaß
      bestimmt fällt mir bald wieder was ein...

  6. I hope autumn finds a place in your heart this year. Those grapes are fabulous looking. I love the mix of large and small in one bunch. It seems whenever I buy grapes they are either all small or all large...

    1. they never looked that way before - it must be a mutation thanks to the crazy weather we had all this year. i guess this will be a once-in-a-vinyards-life-experience...

  7. finally
    i made a blogpost
    about your beautiful pendants

    thanks again Anna!

    Patrice A.

    1. thank you SO much for this lovely post
      you made me very happy!

  8. Also, dein kleiner Pilea ist gewachsen und bereit um zur Post zu gehen. Vielleicht besser jetzt, bevor die Kälte uns einholt. Ich hätte tatsächlich gerne Geraniensetzlinge. Schreibe dir eine mail. Schöne Herbstpost übrigens.

    1. oh, da freu ich mich aber!
      schreib mir doch gerne und wir machen was aus!

  9. dear Anna,
    is it still possible to order those small pendants with text of my own?
    i would love to have 3 more :)
    deep autumn colours!
