Kegel/cones

ich mag diese wunderbaren riesigen Berge, die Gewitterwolken, und in unserem Haus, ganz oben, kann ich am offenen Fenster stehen und mich mittendrin fühlen. Es macht Spaß, mit der Kamera zuzusehen.
i love these wonderful mighty mountains, the thunderheads and inside our house on the highest floor I can stand to the open window and feel as if I where in the middle of them. It's so much fun to watch them with the camera.

Seit Wochen schon habe ich diese Kegel im Kopf...möchte unbedingt Papierkegel machen, dick und voluminös. Und hier ist der erste...und was ist er geworden.....ein Wolken-Kegel, passend zum Wetter ;))
For weeks now I think of cones......want to make paper-cones, round and voluminous. And here is the first one....and that's what it is...a clouds-cone, according to the weather ;))

oh Uschi, your clouds-cone is beautiful! love the long delicate fibers of the edges against the blue...just as you see in the thunderheads against the blue sky...
how high up are you? i look at the large image of the clouds and they seemed to be just right above my head. :).

...i've been thinking about what you said about being rooted...and wondering if it's possible to still be grounded and have the head in the clouds and fingers everywhere...?

Mien, thanks!! Our little house has got three tiny floors and the best room is under the roof!! With large windows!

rooted: your question sounds, like you would ask, if it is possible to be a tree....
Yes it is and I believe it is necessary to have strong roots, if you want to grow high and far!! Remember the trees: the single ones on big meadows have strong roots and a big crown and are able to stand the daily storms. Those in the forests don't have these large roots but can grow high, because the "group" gives them shelter!
If you spin this thread a while in your head there are so many relations between the life of trees and our life! I love that!

Your paper cone is beautiful Uschi, and what a beautiful name! clouds-cone, how poetic! Love the photographs from your window, they are amazing!!

your cones are really wonderful. I was just thinking Mien would like them. They are indeed cloud-like, they are a little like some sort of seed that is made to be blown in the wind. I hope you know the sort i mean, i can't think how to explain it better!

Oh woiw, what a fluffy little gorgeous thing you made!!! Beautiful! True, passend zum Wetter. Bei uns hier war Hitze und endlich sind ein paar Wolken hier.
Ich mag den Namen "Wolkenkegel".
The cloud cones would look stunning as room decoration in a hanging mobile or so.

Uschi! are you magical or what?! thank you for the insight. yes! i will remember the image of the trees you have given me. when i first read what you wrote back, it is like you lighted a very dim lightbulb in my head! i will keep on spinning that beautiful thread of imagery that you have started...

p.s. Jade, are you thinking of dandelions? those flower seeds you blow to make a wish? ...or is it you catch one and make a wish? i forget.

p.p.s. Uschi, you know i am learning some German words, thanks to your bilingual blog!

The clouds are just beautiful! I had a similar experience with clouds on the beach last weekend - they looked perfect, hanging in the sky as if they were on threads - not moving at all....I posted a picture on my blog! Your paper cone is just fantastic!! I have finally started my journal! A couple of weeks to catch up on in the next 2 weeks!!

I love the mountains too. We have the Campsie hills within 10 miles of our house and they're high among my favourite places to be.
