A Beautiful Spring Day in Weimar


Let me take you away on a few sights of Weimar in Spring. I love this city in Spring. Actually I love all four seasons in Weimar but Spring is simply gorgeous. The colors, the aromas, the sounds and the light all put a little skip in my stride and give a buzz to my energy. Not that I need it! 

But there is an extra buzz and I feel like spending all my time taking in all the kaleidoscope of colors around me. In his time Goethe knew what a special city Weimar was. It inspired him to write some of his most famous masterpieces. Often when I stroll past his garden house (picture below) I wonder if he too loved Spring in this quaint city as much as I do.


Did he see the different shades of pinks, whites and yellows, from the cherry, almond and apple trees that stand tall on both sides of the meandering river, Ilm?


Where did he sit and get his inspiration? Was it this bench, the same that I am sitting on, that motivated him?


A bench, a shady spot under a tree or dangling my feet into the river are just some of the places where I derive my strength from, create ideas and precise my thoughts.


I’ve been doing a lot of that lately – having many ideas and organizing my thoughts. I feel the energy to move forward and be creative. The colors I see around me help me plan my next photo shoot. The sounds I hear of birds chirping, the rustling of leaves in a gentle warm breeze and rushing of water create words, sentences and paragraphs in my head – I need to write them down lest I forget them. I know I will need them again.


I want to reach up and touch the sky, frolic in the clouds and reach for the stars.

My first step towards the stars is getting myself a piece of the sky. I have finally invested in a some real estate – internet real estate. Have you noticed my new address? Yes, What’s For Lunch. Honey? has a new home – www.whatsforlunchhoney.net. This is where you all need to head to when you want to come over to visit me from now on so make sure you bookmark it.

I have updated my feed so all my subscribers should still get their updates without any delay. You can update you links in your blogrolls, but as Blogger will be redirecting everything from the old blogspot address to this ne one, it is not necessary.

Finally, I say thank you to a special friend who has motivated me through this, has helped me, guided me and given me the occasional kick in the butt. Ilva I love you bella! Thank you.

I hope you all have a gorgeous Spring weekend ahead, Catch you all next week!
