a blog about plants, cats and other lovely creatures

The problem with blogging about gardening and plants for me is that during the gardening season, there is not much time to write, and when there is time to write, there is not much going on gardening-wise. Do you find this, too? Let me share with you some of the photos I shot over this season.

Summertime is the time of long evening walks with your head up in the air...

...time to admire other people's gardens and what grows in them...

...and lives in them...

...or to think of the potential their places hold, unfulfilled.

Last week I picked the first tomato that ripened on my window sill.

But... compare that to my mother's produce from her garden in the country!

One day, after a good night's rain, I was lucky enough to find this beautiful edible surprise 
growing right under my balcony.

I hope you are all enjoying your summer, or any other season it may happen to be right now 
where you live.


  1. Last week we were in Switzerland - enjoying mushrooms we don't see in South Africa. Mostly we get the bland champingnons.

    1. Did you pick and eat them yourselves? That is what Czech people love doing in late summer, go to the woods mushroom hunting. I actually like champignons for their delicate taste. These wood mushrooms have a very distinct taste.
