The last few weeks have been really busy for me. I hardly had any time for the myriads of my ongoing projects, for tweeting or blogging and on top of that… my computer went wrong. I’m now trying to learn to use new applications and it’s not that easy (switching from Photoshop to Gimp is really challenging!).
I do apologize that there’ll be no desktop image for May (not sure how many of you will miss it). It might turn up a bit later, as I’m still hoping that everything will get back to normal soon. Meanwhile, I hope that the rest 28 days of this month are sunny, with plenty of pleasant brakes and loads of impressive blooms!

Talking about pleasant brakes, I’ve just had one – 48 hours in Holland. I can’t believe we’ve managed to see as much as we did, although, to be honest with you, we rushed everywhere and it’s only now, while sitting in my own living room, looking at the photographs that I took, that I can truly enjoy the experience (there are two things I regret though – not going to Van Gog’s museum and missing my opportunity to meet Sarah). I’ll tell you about the trip in detail soon, for now here’s what to expect:
I’ll tell you what I liked and disliked about the city of diamonds – Amsterdam (I didn’t see a single diamond, by the way).
There’ll be some photographs from the famous Rijksmuseum (sadly this was the only museum we had time for).
You’ll hear (well, read, actually) about the Late Rembrandt exhibition at Rijksmuseum. The paintings were (and still are of course) amazing; Rembrandt is definitely the greatest figure in Dutch art of the Golden Age!
There’ll also be loads of flowers; especially tulips, daffodils and hyacinths that I saw while visiting Keukenhof or the Garden of Europe (unbelievable 32 hectares of flowers!).
