Eight years have gone since the September day when the darkest clouds covered the sun. However, the years have given the dark clouds a silvery lining of memories. Today we will remember …..

This time I want to show you LeenaP’s wonderful photos of our Knuti boy. He was a master of changing his fur colour from white to cappuccino in no time at all!

This story was first published on the 25the of July 2009. I think it deserves to be read and seen at least once more ….. Our magic bear always talked to me!



Knut was – and still is – my great source of inspiration

Dear friends! This time I want to show you some of my Summer collages with Knut. Each and every picture brings back the wonderful feeling I had making them.

It’s obvious that a lot of things are dancing in Knuti’s minds. I’m sure he was busy making plans for the Summer season. As we all know he was a very keen gardener.

When the Spring comes I always remember the meetings in Berlin when Knut was still there. The weather was often warm, the trees and bushes were getting green offering a wonderful ‘background’ to our visits in the zoo.



How do they get into those rags?

This story was first published in November 2010 but in my opinion it deserves to be published once more. The photos present our innovative magic bear in such a wonderful way.

When we were waiting for Palle-Jooseppi to come out and declare the Spring season opened I received the sad news of his passing in the late Summer last year.

Today five years have gone since the tragic Saturday in March 2011. How I wish we could have seen our beloved Knut grow up to a gorgeous adult polar bear but my wishes never came true. However, I hope our bear angel can enjoy the signs of Spring in your heaven – smell the scent of the flowers, listen to the birds’ singing and the bees humming.
