Received - China (7)


I love that card! It shows a culture of China by its art. The painting was made using the ink wash technique. For centuries, this form of Chinese art was practiced by highly educated scholar gentlemen or literati. In the picture you can also see a poem from the Book of Songs. The Book Of Songs is the oldest existing collection of Chinese poetry, comprising 305 works dating from the 11th to 7th centuries BC.

Some photos - cornflowers


These photos were made during a walk across the fields in my hometown :-). It was sunny and warm day. We have spent some time near the small river. My little dog was happy and really tired, because the grass was high and he couldn't run as fast as he wanted ;-). I also stole some cornflowers from the field and now I have a beautiful blue bouquet standing on the table :-).

You can see the big two mountains of Eiger and Mönch form part of the Swiss Alps. The name Eiger is German for high peak. Mönch was unnamed for a long time being know as Little Eiger but now has it own name, which comes from the alpine pastures below the mountain on which horses called Münche used to graze.
