i found my new favorite flower in the netherlands. but what is it called? is it an iris? a freesia? anyhow it smells so sweet so sweet, like nectar.. and it stayed alive and strong for more than a week. rediscovering the pleasure of bowling,walking under pink bridges& a stillleben of chocolate wrappings (maarten was the creator and photographer) were another few moments from those 9 days.
the spring is so different in europe. the light looks different. everything is more subtle, more careful. 29 degrees on the third day of april, can that count as spring?
