Summer at Last - Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon

Our back porch features a new addition, which is useful for both plants and cats. 
Tristan demonstrates...
:


Such a hot day - a perfect place to catch a cross-breeze.
This shelf is reserved!

Time for brunch...

I love Lee Valley!

A most welcome gift from a friend, fabulous photos...


A most excellent spinach quichey, omelettey creation!

Oh - Tristan is on guard - someone is coming!

Il Pantero (aka The Reverend) likes to visit kitty day-care chez nous!
"Fill my bowl please!"

Chaiyka enjoys the expanded patio walkway - nice and cool on a hot day.

Love this new bright red Begonia - just gorgeous!

All manner of Dianthus are in bloom - cannot have a garden without
Sweet William.



Salpiglossis, or Painted Tongue, related to the Petunia,
is stunning.




Welcome Summer!

  2. Hi Anya! Thank you for your very nice comment on my slavic-garden blog! It was really nice reading it :) If your parents were Polish - you're almost Polish, too! Do you remember where did your parents live in Poland at that time? In which part of Poland? Im from central part, Mazovia region. I can give you lots of Polish recipes or help you with translation - so you could remind yourself about Polish food :) My grandma, who passed away last Septemper, was my source of cooking methods, recipes and tending the garden. I have many her recipes which I keep as a tresure. My mom cooks more in a modern way, she likes Hungarian cuisine or Italian (me too of course) but, I always have a sentimental attachment to a traditional Polish cuisine.

    I'll be visiting your blog!
    I love your cats, I'm a cat addict, too! I love the way you take photos of them, they make me smile :)

    Take care and have a nice day!
