Three cool cats

Three cats want you to observe them fondly. Every cat gets three snaps. The first one is a neighbour just around the corner, a little bestia-weary, even though he wouldn’t hurt it. The second was caught in action next to the Orbetello lagoon. It looks it has found a shortcut (shortcat?) to the birds and the…

WPC: Atop of the morning to ya

The title goes well with yesterday’s Fiesta, whereas the photos are two apiece from different tops I have climbed in my two countries. But first the last week on my blog lest I forget. There were quite a few topics: Last week’s subject of “wish” had me running for a pretty little church; I told you…

Birds’ wedding planner

In Slovenia it’s St. Gregory’s today, the day when birds get married. More on this pagan holiday which we call “Gregorjevo” here. It’s St. Valentine’s Day, Slovenian-style. I had planned to post other bird photos, but today as I went to buy groceries by the lagoon, as one does, certain aviators demanded attention. They can be…

March

I had the first visitors of the year then and we had plenty of lovely views and good time. Photo: a © signature mmm production January is here. February is here. April is here. May is here.

WPC: Relax, don’t (over)do it

No matter how people predominantly use them for work, to me boats spell relax. But first, a short weekend review of the last week on my blog. To be found: A walk around my immediate vicinity to show you the vineyard colours, green grass and all that occurs this time of year; a selection of windows from our Tuscany 4-town…

Saturday in Orbetello

Last Saturday we encountered an open-air market by the Orbetello lagoon, right on the other side to where the flamingos are. Photo: a © signature mmm production

Flaming flamingos

They seem so pink from afar. But when you zoom in, they are mostly white. And then one lifts his wing a little, and then you know. They say it’s from the shrimps they get their pink. Who knew. I don’t say it often, but sometimes I could use a bigger lens. Sorry for the…
