For the love of palms…

I have “a thing” for palm trees! When I visit an exotic place I take a lot of pictures of them! I love the sound and movements of palm leaves when it is windy. I love the way they look at sunset…. well in other words I just find them beautiful!

Weekend activity

I am really enjoying this very long weekend ( since Thursday!!!!) as I have been able to do a lot of my favorite activites! I actually had the time to clean, to “rearrange” furniture at home, to train, to go for evening walks, to read. Yesterday I spent some time sorting out my photos. I am aware that I am not a professional photographer but I love to take pictures. I like to capture moments, beautiful things or places. I will after a while nostalgically look at my photos and remember great experiences with friends, family…. I had some of my favorite pictures printed out but I never got the time to hang them. It will be such a pity to keep them in a drawer!

  1. So I sorted out the pictures by theme, colours, places

For the bedroom I chose a “vegetal” theme and “green+pink ” colors

In Lyon…

I spent some days in the area of Lyon and I particularly enjoyed spending time in my parent’s garden which is very colourful! I love the purple colour….

I visited the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyon. There is an inner courtyard where you can sit on a bench and relax, or draw and paint….
