The Urban Jungle Bloggers theme of this month is: who’s behind your plants?! #PLANTSELFIE. I’m not a frequent selfie maker, but I had a lot of fun making these plantselfies starring one of my oldest and largest spiderplants (Chlorophytum comosum).  I look forward to see all the plantselfies on the other green loving blogs!

Growing baby plants

making cuttings Dancers Road

We moved! We found a perfect new home where we are living since last sunday. Everything is still in boxes, I can’t find a thing, it’s a total chaos but the plants are alright! I’ve moved a lot in the past few years and one of the first things I do in a new home is arrange the plants and make sure that they are in the right pot at the right place. It calms me down and it makes me feel right at home, even though everything else is not there yet. Because moving is not so much fun… It’s fun when it’s done but the moving itself I find quite stressing. A colleague said to me last week that when he really dislikes someone he always wishes that person to have to go true a moving. I thought that was a funny and at the same time a very dark thought. Anyway to calm myself down I decided to make some cuttings from my favourite plants. Because our new house is not much bigger than the old one but it has way more windowsills to fill with plants (yay!).

At the moment I’m growing a few different kinds of succulents, Pilea peperomioides (Chinese money plant), Cyperus alternifolius (umbrella plant) and a few Caladiums. Most of these are easy to make cuttings from, especially the moneyplant and the umbrella plant but the Caladium is a bit of an experiment for me so I’m curious how that will turn out!

PERSONAL | Making friends with the trees and my new camera

making friends with the trees and my new camera - blogpost from Dancers Raod

Last week my camera broke. He and I were having some problems and irritations for a few months, amongst others because he kept telling me his lens was not attached even though I knew it was. So we were not so close lately and it was no surprise but but still it was a sad moment. Especially because I knew I had to spend some of my savings on a new one, since I use my camera almost every day.

P.  was so sweet to accompany me on my quest for a new one and we went for some serious camera investigation to the store and online. Finally I decided it was going to be the Nikon D5200 with a 18-270 mm Tamron lens. A slightly better camera than my old one with a way better lens. And boy do I love that lens! It is great, it is sharp, fast and it makes a cute little mechanical noise when it zooms. I just love it. So it did not take me very long to become friends with my new camera and forget about the old one (sorry Nikon D5000).

Yesterday morning me and Noga went for an early morning walk in the forest and I shot these wonderful pictures of my friends the trees with my new friend mister Nikon D5200. The trees are changing their summer wardrobes for their more warm and fiery autumn ones and that transformation is as beautiful as always. There even were a few mushrooms already. In a quiet forest the changing of the season is an unwavering certainty in an unstable world.

TRAVELLING | MACEDONIAN FLORA

Flora from Macedonia photo from DancersRoad blog www.dancersroad.wordpress.com

This last week of my summer holiday I spent with P. in Macedonia, an absolute beautiful country that I instantly fell in love with. The nature here and the landscapes are magnificent and very impressive. There are green forests, wild mountains and many many wild animals, from little lizards to bears and lynxes. The flowers and plants are beautiful and grow everywhere, because the climate gives them both sun and rain. But what I really love is that it’s quiet everywhere.

URBAN JUNGLE BLOGGERS: MY PLANTGANG

my plantgang for Urban Jungle Bloggers by Dancers Road

This months Urban Jungle Bloggers theme is ‘show your gang!’ I love seeing what creative ideas people come up with, every month around different topics and I’m very excited to make my first Jungle Bloggers Post myself!

So here it is: my plantgang! I’ve said it before; I’m a leaf person. Off course I enjoy watching flowers but when it comes to houseplants my attention always goes to the leafs first. And I’m amazed everytime by the great variaity of leafs even whitin my own very small gang of plants.

Half way true the shoot, Noga couldn’t bare it anymore that the plants got all the attention instead of him so he decided to stand in the middle of the frame… which is funny because when I try to portrait him he usually runs away.

AUSTRIA

Austria by Dancers Road

Last week me and P. were in Munich. We came for work but also took a little off to visit my absolute favourite place in the whole world: Austria and to be more specific; The Wilder Kaiser Mountains in the Kitzbüheler Alps.  I spend a lot of time in this area as a child and this place has great value to me so it was great to be able to show it to Paul.  We only had an afternoon but the sun was shining, everything was green and growing and the mountains were magnificent as always.
