    Do I live here?

    It’s been a year now since we left Malta and moved to Cyprus and just over two months ago we moved into our house. Yes, this is where I live and I feel truly grateful. The images I show are from our plot area. There’s still some work to be done inside and out, but […]

    Looking Back

    I’m stuck with my blog, nothing wrong with flowers, insects and dogs but I want to find something else, something different. What do I do?? Well, I’m looking back… In 2011, I created my first blog, the same year, my interest in photography began. At that time, I mostly photographed people, street life, buildings and […]

This charming little lady with typical basenji character has given birth to six wonderful puppies. She’s my first dog ever, she means a lot to me. 💓Happy Birthday Fanny!💓💓💓💓💓💓

    Today’s Macro

    Yes, I have been here before, but since I am so very small, I got to be here again. She, the one who decides what to post here, thinks that this picture is better than the previous one, I think so too. This time I’m also joined by other beauties who are a little bigger, […]

    Felicia

    Hello, my name is Felicia. How are you…? Min fina älskade lilla Felicia! Alltför sällan med här på bloggen men alltid med när vi tillsammans utforskar naturen liksom när vi nu bor in oss i vårt nya hem här på Cypern. Hon är busig, vaksam, nyfiken och alert. Fyller två år i september, mamma Fanny […]

    These Amazing Creatures

    “The world is a fascinating place. How could anyone be bored? Look around and there are a hundred amazing things to investigate.”― Cindy Crosby Paphos, Cyprus 19 June 2022.

  • Peace and quiet

    Sky and sea and a little tree. The horizon barely visible. It’s morning it’s hot and I’m sitting in the shade with my dogs.Another precious moment in life has just passed… Zelemenos, Paphos District – Cyprus 18 June 2022

  • Finding balance

    Finding balance

    “The key to finding a happy balance in modern life is simplicity.”— Sogyal Rinpoche Although the balance this dragonfly shows doesn’t look that simple. It’s been almost a year now since we left Malta and slowly but surely I’ve begun to find a certain balance in our new home. My dogs have already made themselves […]

  • Swallowtail Butterfly

    Swallowtail Butterfly

    This beauty is significantly larger than the one I showed in my previous post. I’ve seen quite a few in the countryside where I walk my dogs. Usually I carry my heavier camera with a macro lens, this time I only had my smaller Panasonic Lumix but I’m happy, it worked well. Paphos, Cyprus 13 […]

    A Rose is a Rose is a Rose…

    A Rose is a Rose…. Different effects, for the sake of the colors and to set my imagination in motion. The meaning of the phrase “A rose is a rose is a rose”“When all is said and done, one thing is what it is.” A rose is a rose and nothing but a rose. Cee’s […]

    Some Butterflies

    Below are some of the few butterflies I managed to capture so far here in Cyprus. Some live among the plants in our garden and I look forward to exploring more of these amazing creatures. Although there are other creatures as well, today I found a huge hairy spider in our kitchen!! But I guess […]

    Today’s Flower: Cistus creticus (Pink Rock-Rose), one of all the colorful flowers that grow wild here in the countryside of Cyprus.

    Almonds

    The flowers on the almond trees are since long gone, now it’s the nuts’ turn to slowly ripen. Below is a fruit that differs, it’s rounder and will soon turn into a sweet and delicious apricot. As mentioned before, we have a large apricot tree in our garden, two newly planted fig trees and one […]

  • Ladybug

    Ladybug

    Most people like Ladybugs, I do. You feel happy when you see them… Ladybugs are colorful for a reason. Their markings tell predators: “Eat something else! I taste terrible.”True or false? Only the insect itself knows. Did you know that one ladybug can consume up to 5,000 aphids in its lifetime. That’s quite impressive. Now […]

    In Our Garden

    Below are some pictures from our garden that surrounds the house we bought in Zelemenos here in Cyprus. The renovation is not finished yet but I keep my fingers crossed that we can move in in the middle of May. The bare small fig tree that was planted a couple of weeks ago has already […]

  • The Look

    It is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul. I guess that’s not the case with owls. I found these pictures in my archive, taken in 2015. I can’t remember where I took them but I guess they are from Malta’s Bird Park in Salinas, a park for the conservation of birds […]

  • Larnaca Salt Lake

    Below are some more images from our holiday in Cyprus in 2016. That was then, when we didn’t know we would move here five years later. The old-fashioned horse-drawn carriage below stands on the roof of a café on the outskirts of Larnaca, or stood, I don’t know if it’s still there. The spotlight is […]

  • Color & Flower of the Day

    Finally!! It’s getting warmer here in Cyprus and one of all the beauties to be found in the world of flowers is blooming. The lovely poppy! Today’s weather here in Paphos: Cloudy with a high of 17.8 °C (64 °F) and winds from 14.5 to 19.3 kph. I wish it was a little warmer but […]

  • Where did Spring go?

    The spring equinox has passed and next weekend we will switch to summer time. It’s still too cold here in Cyprus, everyone I talk to say that it’s very unusual with such cold weather in March. I notice when I walk my dogs where lots of buds and flowers fight against the low temperature. But […]

  • Color Power

    Color is often an overlooked engine that provides spiritual power and positive energy. Take advantage of it!

  • Silence

    …words are important, but sometimes, it is better to say nothing.

  • Playing with Effects

    I mentioned it before, I like trees, especially the old ones but also those that seem to have something to say, even though they can not speak. It’s all about character, it’s about charisma. Some stand alone, others are crowded with each other. I prefer to take pictures of lonely trees. The pictures of the […]

  • I Couldn’t Resist..

    No, I couldn’t resist creating another post with almond blossoms. I see them everywhere, these beautiful flowering trees that mean spring is here. For some reason I don’t manage to photograph the whole flowering tree, it just gets messy, so I choose to only show the close-ups, the details. You can see for yourself the […]

  • That was Then…

    That was Then…

    I found some pictures in my archive from 2016 when we were on a ten-day vacation in Cyprus. These do not in any way represent Cyprus in particular, but I was happy to find at least a few of all images I took six years ago, in a country I didn’t know much about at […]
