Wednesday Vignette – twists and turns

It’s been a twisty, turny week. The good news is that last week’s vignette isn’t entirely totaled, as I had feared. So, my twisty week took a turn for the better. Wonder what’s behind the next bend in the road…

About annamadeit

I was born and raised in Sweden, By now, I have lived almost as long in the United States. The path I’ve taken has been long and varied, and has given me a philosophical approach to life. I may joke that I’m a sybarite, but the truth is, I find joy and luxury in life’s simple things as well. My outlook on life has roots in a culture rich in history and tradition, and I care a great deal about environmental stewardship. Aesthetically, while drawn to the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia, I also have a deep appreciation for the raw, the weathered, and the worn - materials that tell a story. To me, contrast, counterpoint, and diversity are what makes life interesting and engaging. Color has always informed everything I do. I’m a functional tetrachromat, and a hopeless plantoholic. I was originally trained as an architect working mostly on interiors, but soon ventured outside - into garden design. It’s that contrast thing again… An interior adrift from its exterior, is like a yin without a yang. My firm conviction that everything is connected gets me in trouble time and time again. The world is a big place, and full of marvelous distractions, and offers plentiful opportunities for inquiry and exploration. I started writing to quell my constant queries, explore my discoveries, and nurture my curiosity. The Creative Flux was started in 2010, and became a catch-all for all kinds of intersecting interests. The start of Flutter & Hum at the end of 2013 marks my descent into plant nerd revelry. I occasionally contribute to other blogs, but those two are my main ones. For sure, topics are all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blogs!

    Thank goodness your vehicle can be repaired; shopping for a new vehicle is a pain. Here’s to happier surprises around the next bends in the road!

    I love those contorted stems! Glad to hear the truck can be repaired. My WV is tucked into a post on the impact of our long-awaited rain on my garden:

    Glad it’s not totaled. I’m hopeful that Spring is around the next bend, although you could never tell that by my WV:

    Funny – I’m actually commenting on this from Bend. We just got here, and even here, spring has arrived. I hope It will head up your way, too.
