The next time you’re on the Congress Square (park Zvezda/Star) in the center of Ljubljana, just know that during WWII  potatoes  and later soybean were grown here🌱🌱🌱
-
Other parks and squares were used in the same way too. For example, in Tivoli there were planted the onion, beetroot, cauliflower, herbs and vegetables 🌿🌾🌱

SLO🇸🇮
Leta 1942 zaradi posebnih razmer (vojne) na območju današnjega parka Zvezda mestna vrtnarija je zasadila krompir🌱🌱🌱
Septembra je časnik »Jutro« poročal, da je bila »letina v Zvezdi prav bogata« 😊
-
Podobno se je godilo tudi drugim trgom in parkom v Ljubljani. Na primer v Tivoliju je bilo posajeno zelje, pesa, cvetača, ohrovt...🌿🌾🌱
-
Samo pomnite na to, ko ste na Kongresnem trgu 😉

Very often I dream about the ability to travel through time. When I see a place with history, I always imagine what was going on here 50, 100 or even a thousand years ago. What this very place looked like and what people felt, standing here. Not many cities still have the aura of their past: a lot of them have traded themselves for new grey-and-glass buildings of supermarkets, business centres and “prestigious” apartments, that have only the aura of money and greed.

But here, in Ljubljana and in Slovenia in common every stone has a history, many buildings still remember even Austro-Hungarian times (and still are in use for living). And it’s a shame that stones can not talk.

Little Water Girl .
This 101 year old statue, beloved in Portland, honors Lillian Ames Stevens, who was the second president of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. In Maine, Stevens led the union’s support of the woman’s suffrage movement, as well as the establishment of shelters for women in trouble.
.

The Women’s Christian Temperance Union donated the statue to Portland in 1917 and is a copy of an original bronze fountain sculpted by English artist George Wade in 1893 for the World’s Fair in Jackson Park, Chicago. .

The granite base was designed by Portland architect, Frederick A. Thompson. The water falls into what was a drinking trough for horses in the base at the girl’s feet.  Two wide steps are carved out of the left side as an invitation to ascend and drink from the cup, and in the rear right ground level corner of the base there is a small basin into which flowing water was directed for birds and dogs.  The overall design was meant to memorialize Mrs. Stevens’ great love for all living things.
.

The Little Water Girl was originally installed in Congress Square and twelve years later was moved to Deering Oaks Park. She was finally relocated to the Portland Public Library in 1979. .

It’s easy to see why Ljubljana won the title of ‘European Green Capital’.

MAMM IN THE NEWS: We are excited to be participating in the Pianos In the Squares Kickoff event tomorrow!  Our student Annabelle will be performing at Monument Square at 11am and our instructor Ahmadeus Kafari will be performing at noon at Longfellow Square. (Read the article at link in bio) "Annabelle Brooks, a 13-year-old student at King Middle School, will be representing MAMM when she performs in Monument Square on Friday. Brooks, who plans to perform songs such as 'Have You Ever Seen the Rain' and 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,' said she sees this project as a way to brighten the community and give people a chance to experiment with a new instrument."

Poletna noč, 20. 6. 2018
Lyrics i can’t forget ...😍
... So tvoji biseri v očeh
pretemni za ta greh.
In spet naekrat se ne najdem,
ne najdem besed.
Ko te vidim, da greš mimo mene,
a ne morem te objet ... Siddharta - Ledena

On Fathers Day 2018 we did some food truck hopping at @fleaforall Portland’s FleaBites and ate some yummy made-to-order hand dipped doughnuts by @eighty8donuts. Then I wrote a blog post about it... link in bio
