Hooray – a rainy October day!

It’s raining!!! Now that may not seem as all that unique, but this was our first rain in several months. The soil in parts of my garden looks and feels like the Kalahari, and even the native plants look somewhat crispy. I tend to be a shade dweller during the summer months, so when the rains finally return, my entire being sighs a big sigh of relief. For me, the return of rain somehow signify the end of the tunnel – and the near beginning of ski season. So, forgive this relative nonsense post… I’m celebrating! Apple-tastings, amazing looking pumpkins of all different shapes and colors, a cup of apple cider, colorful flowers, foliage, and grasses, the trees in fall splendor, the benevolent splashing of rain and a decent rain jacket – what else do you need to be happy?


About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!
