Uta’s Diary

It is Caroline’s Birthday: Dec. 9, 2020

The above pictures I took a bit over a month ago! Today I took some pictures outside because it was such great sunny weather. A lot in the backyard looked beautiful to me. It was a really good Sunday again. I spent many hours outside including an early morning walk and starting to read a book I had been wanting to read ages ago and never actually started reading it. Today I managed to read already 100 pages in three sessions. All the reading I did sitting outside in different places. It is so good to spend time outside. What could be better?

With the downloading of the new pictures I don’t feel quite up to it yet. I wanted to show Martin how much everything has been growing since he planted it. It really is very luscious growth this year after all that rain. But yes, it was very pleasant to have today a day without any rain and also hardly any wind!

Instead of today’s pictures I inserted now a few pictures from last month when Peter was still alive, but deteriorating a lot in that he was not able to eat properly any more, not even cake! We moved the card table close to his bed with Caroline’s sumptuous birthday cakeon it, so that he would feel included in the birthday celebrations. Alas, he managed to eat only a tiny, tiny bit.

These are the trees I always love to visit!
Over th last few weeks and months we often had a lot of clouds!

  1. Beauty.
    These are things once memory sees,
    Cannot be forgot, nor disdained.
    These things that we do treasure,
    Things lost or all forlorn,
    Which I did adore is grown pale and wan,
    What was ever so beautiful once,
    Is gone…is gone.
    Nature may mark the species,
    But history marks the men,
    Lies shape the person,
    Whose fortune is already damned.
    The stupid repeat their mistakes-and
    A fool is condemned in vain.
    These things our memory has seen,
    Not to be forgot, nor to be disdained,
    Lest that we most treasure, be lost or forlorn,
    And which we adore grow pale and wan,
    So THAT beauty that ever once was,
    Never is gone….never is gone.

  2. Sweet memories!
    I’m so glad Peter was surrounded by love! ❤

    Your outdoor photos are beautiful, Uta…nature can bring joy, comfort, companionship, emotional-healing, and so much more.
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

    1. I agree, being surrounded by nature is of the greatest benefit to our lives! 🙂
      I am glad you like my photos, Carolyn. 🙂
      Hugs back from me, Uta 🙂
