I'll try to tell you from eight things, which are important for my life.
Take care of things! I had never a puppy or kitten for my own although I always wanted one. Dogs and cats needing my help were increasingly coming to me. And the animals I already had didn't like another animal in the house - never!!! Individualists? Egotists?
Feel! A person' s way of live is - similar to the way they do gardening - a very personal thing and tells a lot about the way they are. I am a romantic woman, a connoisseur, I am a citizen of the world and not only of Germany and so I try to understand other countries and other people. Thus, my livestyle is very international.
Love! I' m a person who enjoys life. I prefere cultural events live, doesn' t matter if it' s an opera, a visit to a wonderful church, a circus or a perfect art exhibition. If the quality is good, I like everything and anything. I watch television very rarely. The time I would need to select a good program is too long. I prefere to spend this time with you all and a good glass of red wine.
Relax! I try to go every year at least once to visit gardens in other countries. Culture events alone are too exhausting and walking through the streets is tiring. BUT visiting garden and people interested in gardens for a week, taking photographs, collecting ideas and opinions for my own garden, thi is really relaxing for me.
Collecting! Books, I cannot and do not resist. I have so many it' s not possible to read them all. But I like to read a lot and I like to know that I always have the answers to my questions in books. It' s my personal way of "googling" and it' s so meditative.
