Lebensräume Salzwiesen und Dünen sind wichtige Lebensräume an der Nordsee. Ganz spezielle seltene Pflanzen wie z. B. die Stranddistel haben sich hier den für die meisten Pflanzen unwirtlichen Bedingungen, wie z. B. Wind und Salz angepasst. Die Flora an den Nordseeküsten und auf den Inseln steht größtenteils unter Naturschutz – also bitte nicht pflücken!

Nature Journaling with Natural Materials

Nature Journaling with Natural Materials I often use twigs, grass blades or feathers instead of brushes to paint with natural inks, so why not do this in my nature journal, too 😊 How I did it Here I used liquid watercolours and the pages came out in an impressionistic way: The February page with the first grass blades coming through the melting snow and a patch of little yellow early bloomers in the background. The March page was inspired by […]

Meine Insel

Im Frühjahr ist meine Geliebte eine Insel (…) Früh im Jahr spült Meine Geliebte kraftvoll rauschend Den Spätwinter fort, Malt glitzernde Sterne und Regenbögen auf goldenen Saum Ihrer grün-grauen Netze, In denen ich mich verfange, strande und bleibe Allein zurück wartend auf die nächste Flut am Horizont. Endlose Weite hab‘ ich gesehen, Endlose Zeit kann ich nicht vergessen. (Nach Bachmann I Auszug, 12.03. 2016 © Christiane Weismüller)
