Beautiful Weekend


, , ,

Summer has entered our daily lives with high temps. A great show that was not greatly appreciated by many, by birds, by nature in general. Now the temps are bearable, the wind is chasing the heath away, happily. One has such a sympathy for birds, for chicks and parents alike. Bird baths, ten of them, are cleaned and filled with clean water twice daily for very appreciative birds of all ages…

A beautiful weekend to us all in moderate temps, in good company…

My Lilies on Floral Friday


, , ,

Lilies are one of the truly great garden plants for their flower forms, diversity, extended season of bloom, graceful stature, and reliable disposition. Their bulbs can be planted in spring for bloom the same year, or in fall for bloom the following year. These are my lilies,  now in full bloom, which I planted  indoors in pots. They are showy in bright colours and so very beautiful…

May today and everyday bring you peace and happiness…

My ET on #macromonday

#macromonday with peony roses, and I’d like to talk about my post of #silentsunday.  A White Cat on A Quince Tree

That single photo was very important to me under the circumstances. After months of fighting with a serious illness my sweet cat was out and about, climbing on a tree. It is her kidneys that need constant care until her death. For a cat that was born in the garden, being inside, not wanting to go out was for me very difficult to accept. After weeks of force feeding, sleepless nights (still ) she is getting better with medicine ( for life), and a special cat fountain. Because these things should keep her alive.
That photo, and a few more showed her as her usual self: something that has made me silent and think about the difficult times we’ve been through. Is she out of the woods yet? I don’t know…Nothing is certain in life, we are not eternal. I will cherish our time together as I had always done with all my pets: dogs, cats, and a dear wild rabbit before ET.  As I’m planning to travel in coming years, ET will be my last furry companion for the time being.

Longing For The Sea



It’s too hot, too sunny, it feels like a real summer day before Summer. What makes it even hotter is  preparing tax papers: that annual torture day! It’s confusing to fill tax papers for two countries in our united Europe! So only thing that gives me pleasure today to dream about the sea, a splash, a fun swim…I’m OK now, back to the papers….
