A beautiful display of hollyhocks in Wannsee. I love the simplicity of these flowers, in German they're called farmers roses.
And a look at the hollyhock bicycle, which I featured here back in 2015. This bicycle had been parked in the same place for almost three years... just last week I saw that it was moved to another lamppost about 50 meters away. I wonder if it gets lonely now without its longtime hollyhock companion.
It all began ten years ago when I left Paris, France for Jackson, Mississippi. I was unemployed for awhile in Jackson and an old colleague in Paris sent me a link to Eric Tenin's Paris blog. I was quickly hooked and joined the City Daily Photo network with Jackson Daily Photo. Having a blog to fill gave me a reason to get out and about and discover my new home.
When we moved to Toronto four years later, I continued photo blogging on One a Day from Toronto. Once again, taking pictures helped me adjust to life in a new city.
We've been back in Berlin (my husband's hometown) for four years now. I don't post as often now as I know the city quite well, but I still enjoy being part of the CDP network. I cherish all the friendships I've made (both virtual and otherwise) through blogging. Let's see where we go from here!
PS: I'm posting photos from my three-month tour of Southeast Asia on Halcyon Travels. Stop by and take a look.
There is something I really like about this doorway - actually many things! The arches, the details surrounding the door, the small oval window... but especially the built in Latin welcome mat!
Happy Friday! Hope you have a fantastic weekend ahead.
