Colours of Summer

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!

a batallion of new life

Colour green: An entire battalion of new life. Dunno who these kids will become but they already look quite eeeeh red-eyed and rrrready!
