Thinking about this haiku, hm, it seems better without the ‘my’. I’ve made the change in the haiku, but not in the haiga.

The sculpture, the little lake girl, maybe mermaid, riding the whale, in the Kurparkschloesschen, in Herrsching am Ammersee, is by artist Hilde Grotewahl. It can be seen on the promenade, opposite the Schloesschen. More work by this artist in her website here.

Haiga #2 September 2011

Having lived by the lake Ammersee for ten years, we are now moving further inland. These photos with haiku/haiku within a photo (haiga) are our way of capturing our last autumn walks by the lake.

(I will be posting them on Flickr too, set: ‘leaving Ammersee.’)

Inspiration also through NaHaiWriMo extension prompt: weekend.

Mushroom hunting

Where can I find mushrooms, some of my readers have been asking me. A strange question, especially since I am allergic to mushrooms. I think they may have been smelling Melissa Allen’s mushroom garden, across the haikuverse. If you too are interested in mushrooms, you are invited to visit and even pick some. Please scroll down to find mine! The link? Here  it is
