Squares & ice cream again

The fresh design of Sprüngli's ice cream cups is an appropriate packaging for the delicious content. Mango, passion-fruit, vanilla, rasperry, pistachio, hazel-nut, strawberry... you are just spoilt for choice.
And talking about fresh design: I think the colours of Josef Albers "Homages to the Square" (painted between 1950 and 1976) are still modern and full of energy.

Zurich Honey

This honey is made by bees that collect pollen in and around Rieterpark. The woodcarved print by the "imkerin's" mother links well to the intensive taste of the bee's product. 

By the way: the Musée national Fernand Léger in Biot (France) reopened after years of renovation.

The blossom of my canadian hibiscus is just breathtaking: the diameter is about 20cm and the leafs are almost transparent.
I found this kind of hibiscus on the floral market in Nice. It's robust, so I can winter it on the balcony. Every year, I have to wait until August, that it shows its whole beauty. Even though it's for days only...

Murten / Morat

Murten (or Morat how the french speaking people of the village would call it) is a real beauty spot. The medieval village is located at the likeside of the Lac de Morat and offers a splendid view over the lake and the vineyards of Mont Vully. 
There are a lot of cosy places to hang out and have some Gâteau du Vully or vine from the "Caves du Vully".
And last but not least: if you want to enjoy this beautiful garden with a perfect view, you can stay at Véronique's place. Mail me for contacts!
