Waterskiing

Dinner tonight at Restaurant Belvedere in Porto Cervo – they have the best antipasti and fresh seafood platter.
Was that Christiano Ronaldo at the Romanzino Beach today?
Treasure hunting at the antique stores in San Pantaleo. I found this beautiful chrystal chandelier from Portugal.

"The best hour in Sardinia is just before sunset. Dolores Guinness already knew this a long time ago." -

I go to San Pantaleo to buy clothes from India and beautiful materials, towels and beachwear, at Foresta G or every Thursday morning at the market.
I am well prepared. My suitcase is full of bikinis and beachwear. My favorite is from Bantu.

I love waterskiing, if possible very early in the morning with Albino at the Hotel Cala di Volpe. It’s the best summer sport to be awake and toned.

Costa Smeralda

I am spending a week at the turquoise cost of the Costa Smeralda in Sardinia. A perfect getaway in June, when the coasts are not crowded by boats and I do not have to cue for waterskiing with Albino at the Hotel Cala di Volpe.

Zen garden

I am fascinated by landscape design. One of my favorite designers is Susanne Burger. She designed the gardens of the “Fünf Höfe” (five courtyards) in Munich.

I will travel to Japan soon and meditate in the garden of Yokohama, designed by Shunnyo Masuno.

Just imagine: a great yoga lesson in a beautifully landscaped garden – Isabina Yoga Center in Rome.

Landscape Visionaries

My favorite book for gardening inspiration:
“Avant-Gardeners” by Tim Richardson (Thames & Hudson).

When I am in Munich I buy best organic vegetables and fruits at Gut zum Leben on the Viktualienmarkt. They use only the best soil for their growings and you can taste the difference.

Gardeners’ World

<br/>For inspiration, advice and new ideas I look at my favorite website for gardening.

Clifton Nurseries

"My favorite flowers in spring, yellow duffies." -

"Sketching in my own garden gives me great pleasure." -

My advice: Start with inexpensive plants and have maximum joy with successful growing.
I visited my friend Peter Green today. He bought a lovely house near Holland Park. I admired his wonderfully designed patio.
Think of the soil you are planting your organic herbs in.
I order my garden tools and materials at www.manufactum.de.

I enjoy shopping for plants and flowers at the Clifton Nurseries, 5a Clifton Villas in Little Venice, London.

IRMA

brings good news to you.
She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever

reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.

WHERE IS IRMA NOW?

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
