Cologne vase


This scene captured at the back of our garden symbolizes for me a couple of important things.

First the vase of Cologne ware, as we call it over here. My mother loved it, because it had belonged to her mother. In my turn I cherish it and gave it a prominent place in our garden. From our living room we have a good view at it.

The bench is a perfect place to rest. When the sun is hot, it is a cool spot as the pear tree casts its shadows over the bench in the afternoon. Great to sit here and read. Well, I catch myself gazing out over the garden every other minute.

  1. I am glad you like it. Funny that something like intuition must be playing a part in (at least in my case) focussing on the scene, as I only later saw the match you are referring to.


    • Thank you, Julia. This was in autumn towards the end of the afternoon. Sometimes I just sit and watch the light which can be very beautiful, playing through the plants for example.


  2. The matching swirls on vase and shadow caught my eye. I guess you registered the pattern unconsciously when you took the picture. A lovely image that’s simple at first glance but draws you back for a second look.


  3. Thank you for your comment, Judith. You word exactly how I feel about this photo, I keep looking at it although it is not something like an awesome landscape. Somehow it gives me a peaceful feeling. Glad you saw something special in it too and shared it with us, thanks!
