Lovely evening on the balcony

Cool air, a glass of wine and a new book made for a lovely evening on the balcony.


  1. Oh, a perfectly spent evening.. Still too cold and rainy here to enjoy an evening like that. What's the book? And what are the flowers? A friend of mine has them in his garden, they spread like weed seeding themselves again and again every year but they're lovely, so fragile and blooming all summer.

  2. I'm reading "Lapsing Into a Comma." I can only handle about a chapter at a time, but I'm a word nerd so it's fun.
    The flowers with the lacy foliage are cosmos. I haven't grown them before, but I think they're my new favorite!

  3. I see, cosmos, what a great name :-)
    Thanks for the tip, I had to google it up before I went on about my fascination with Arnold Mindell's work with coma patients but actually this book sounds really interesting too. I studied linguistics and work as an editor so I can understand how that would be a fun book to read on the balcony, looking at the sunset. By the way, it finally got warm enough for me to enjoy my balcony last night too.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I'm glad your weather is improving. Hopefully it won't be too long before it's too hot! :)
