An endless summer could be compared to an extended flue, a sticky feeling impossible to fight. By mid October you start longing for an excuse for a hot cup of tea, a two layer scarf around your neck and a creamy soup for dinner. I was feeling sad for the old man selling roasted chestnuts in the square praying for temperatures to drop.
Finally autumn is among us. I’m glad Olivia is able to experience the change of season and how the weather determine the rhythm of nature and tradition. She’s already excited about the big puddles in the park and loves figuring out how to hold a crochet needle.
These wintery images belong to the illustrator Suzan Visser, her tiny birds couldn’t express any better the feeling of what the cold weather is all about. Have you heard of Suzan Visser before? I found one of her postcards Fast Essenszeit for first time at an art and craft shop in Dusseldorf. Soon I realized that her work is everywhere on the net, especially on Pinterest. If you love hippos or owls, then you will go crazy pinning her surrealist illustrations.
