I’ve been thinking about a rather sad post with ‘black humor’ observations but than I changed my mind. Life goes on and we should take care of the living, indeed.
Moreover, summer is in full swing here and nothing worse than a mosquito bite should bother you! So, before I post some recipes with fragrant herbs freshly picked in the garden (oooh, and cheese too!), here are some summer colours – also fresh, just from our dacha! Less words, more visual satisfaction.
“… the colours of a rainbow so pretty in the sky…”
(no rainbow in the sky today – although there was a crazy rain + rainbow from the water sprayer)
Colour blue: Remember that the St Pete sky is typically criss-crossed with cable lines? Well, we’re just some 50km away from the city!
Colour green: An entire battalion of new life. Dunno who these kids will become but they already look quite eeeeh red-eyed and rrrready!
Colour red: Peony, shot #1
Colour red again: Peony, shot #2
Colours green and red: Peony, shot #3 – made a photo posing with it as if with a microphone. Won’t post it here :p
Colour white: Boule-de-neige (=snow ball) always attracting passers-by… cruel passers-by
Colours green, white, blue: Boule-de-neige and our house
Colour violet: Iris
Colour yellow: lilies
Colour white again: the beloved birch trees
Colour white: the bark of the beloved birch trees
Colour white: why not again
Colours green and white: Lily-of-the-valley, already past its season
Colours violet and green: a busy bee in the lupine flowers
Just funny: walk like an Egyptian…
Enjoy your summer!
