Autumn leaves

Bilde 10

I seldom arrive home without finding natural elements on the way, to bring along.

A branch, a feather, a flower.

Or a picture of a old Opel Kadett covered with yellow and brown leaves.

Beauty is all around. Autumn is beauty.

“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen.”

― Ernest HemingwayA Moveable Feast

Charming chair

Old chairs.

Love ´em. The more there merrier.

My cat Finn Morris loves this chair just as much as I do. Found it years ago.

Love the patina and the history it shows.

The Queen Ingrid pelargonie is a cutting from the barony garden i Rosendal.

It`s growing beautiful and strong. Still blooming!

It has moved inside till spring.

Hope the perfect pink flowers last forever!

Have a sweet day Sunday!

Christian Houge.

A Norwegian artist and photographer.

A man who has created his own style and atmosphere.

A man who is a creator, not a follower.

He tells stories, engages and inspires.

Read an article I wrote about him recently shown in Aftenposten Bolig and several other Norwegian newspapers.

And have a lovely weekend!
