• Spawn 2020!

    We’ve got spawn, everyone!!! Yes, my sweet “Kermits” (as I call them) have finally woken up and started dating again 馃檪 Yay! This has ALWAYS been the sign that the winter has gone for good and we have warm and nice days of Spring ahead of us. Little things, but make me so happy <3 Mamy skrzek! Moje “Kermity” obudzi艂y si臋 i randkuj膮 w najlepsze w stawiku. To zawsze by艂a oznaka ko艅cz膮cej si臋 zimy. Wiosna nadchodzi. Wniebowzi臋ta! <3  

  • Apple crumble

    Little apples from our dwarf apple tree are super extra sour but so delicious in a home made apple crumble! This year we had about 14 apples, much more than the previous years and it’s connected with my effort of inviting more bees into our garden. My plan for this year is to purchase a little beehive and a queen bee larvae to start my own little beehive in the back garden. Not for honey, just for a safe haven for the species and for my apple tree to benefit from it as well. I know absolutely nothing about bees, so I need a proper research before I make the…

  • Dzi臋cio艂 Drzewo艂upa!

    Dzi艣 odwiedzi艂 nas dzi臋cio艂! Skaka艂 sobie obok stawiku, chcia艂 si臋 wyk膮pa膰, wskoczy艂 na p艂ot i szuka艂 kornik贸w. Potem przeni贸s艂 si臋 na wi艣ni臋 i tam ju偶, skacz膮c kroczek po kroczku stuka艂 sobie, jak to poczciwy Drzewo艂upa po pniu i ga艂膮zkach. Przepi臋kny, ubrany w czarno – bia艂e pi贸rka i cudny wprost czerwony berecik sp臋dzi艂 u nas dobre p贸艂 godziny. Witamy w Domowym Zoo!

  • Idzie nowe!

    Jarmu偶 ro艣nie, buraczki wschodz膮 pi臋knie, rzodkieweczk臋 szlag trafi艂, ale to nam wcale nie psuje nastroju, bo marchewki i pasternak go poprawi艂y wygl膮daj膮c jak te lale. Jest dobrze!

  • T臋cza kolor贸w!

    Dzi艣 Dzie艅 Dziecka, wi臋c ciesz臋 si臋, jak dziecko w艂a艣nie cudownie s艂onecznym i pi臋knym dniem. Rododendron zakwit艂 przecudownie, lawenda pachnie osza艂amiaj膮co, hibiskus wypuszcza p膮czki, b膮ki, motyle i pszczo艂y lataj膮 wsz臋dzie, jak w ulu. RAJ, ludzie, RAJ!!!  

  • Greenhouse Zenhouse

    Ok, let’s face it. We didn’t get the greenhouse just to grow the veggies there, oh no. No! We got it, so we could WATCH the veggies grow. And if you want to watch your plants, fruit and beg grow, the best way to do it is to make it all “zen”. Paul got me an olive tree (giant, gorgeous one!), I got myself some shelves and sorted! Time for relax now 馃檪

  • Empty already…

    Before I knew it, they’d flown away… I only discovered this nest by sheer coincidence. This means the blackbird family HAD their young indeed and why oh why was I worried and so disappointed that they decided not to have the offspring. They tricked me big time! 1:0 to blackbirds, I shall say.

  • Greenhouse is ready!

    YEAH! Time for some home grown fruit and veg and lots of heeeeeeeerbs! The wind didn’t allow us to put it up in one day, so we had to leave it half-build for a day to finish it up yesterday. Paul did a great job, honestly. I can’t wait for this greenhouse to be full of delicious stuff. It’s the perfect time to plant and watch it all grow. Czas na owoce, warzywa i zio艂a! Szklarenka ju偶 stoi. Tak wia艂o, 偶e nie mogli艣my jej postawi膰 w jeden dzie艅 (trzeba by艂o dos艂ownie przeczeka膰 ca艂膮 sobot臋), ale dzi臋ki determinacji mojego cudownego m臋偶a, jest! W ko艅cu jest! Ju偶 nie mog臋 si臋 doczeka膰 na…

  • Jab艂o艅 kwitnie

    Jab艂uszka do tej pory zawsze by艂y malutkie i niezwykle kwa艣ne, ale zastanawiam si臋, czy nie mog艂abym ich zala膰 syropem, bo s膮 miniaturowe i naprawd臋 fiku艣ne. Zobaczymy, czy drzewko w tym roku obrodzi i czy b臋dzie mia艂o owoce. Pszczo艂y by艂y, wi臋c jeszcze jest nadzieja…

  • Spawn 2019

    Always around the time of my birthday my frogs lay their spawn, no exception this time. Net was needed to protect it from the hungry predators 聽who couldn’t wait to put their beaks and claws into frogs’ caviar 馃槈 Zawsze mniej wi臋cej po moich urodzinach, 偶aby sk艂adaj膮 skrzek i tym razem nie zawiod艂y – siedemnastego marca w stawiku pojawi艂 si臋 efekt 偶abich zalot贸w, kt贸ry od razu musia艂am przykry膰 siatk膮, aby przetrwa艂. Historia kijanek 2019 ju偶 wkr贸tce 馃檪  

  • Spring 2018

    Birds are building nests, the cherry tree is blossoming and I can hear bees and bumble bees pollinating the flowers from the far distance. Newt’s family got bigger, Makron came back (a lovely, fat toad), hyacinths’ scent is beautifully overwhelming. Bigos is at home, getting better, sleeping mostly outside on the grass. Life is beautiful. <3 W drzewach kilka gniazd, wi艣nia kwitnie (pszcz贸艂 i b膮k贸w tyle, 偶e ca艂y ogr贸d huczy od d藕wi臋ku skrzyde艂ek), kijanki rosn膮 a traszki chyba r贸wnie偶 powi臋kszy艂y rodzin臋 ( jest ich bodaj ju偶 sze艣膰!). Bigos w domu, Makron wr贸ci艂 na w艂o艣ci a s艂o艅ce pojawia si臋 na niebie coraz cz臋艣ciej.聽Hiacynty pachn膮 po prostu cudnie i powoli wabi膮 motyle.…

  • Prodigal son returns

    I’m talking about a toad. A special toad which quite happily spends time on my hand and has been living in my garden zoo for a while. Then something happened. Makron disappeared and I was almost sure it got eaten by some kind of predator, until today! After a year of absence here he is – back in the garden, in the same place. Bigger, more handsome and oh so pretty. Welcome back! 馃檪 Mowa o ropusze. Pami臋tacie Makrona, kt贸remu chcia艂am dogodzi膰 i zrobi膰 pi臋kny domek, zmieniaj膮c jego ciasn膮 posiad艂o艣膰 na wypasion膮 chat臋? Makron wyprowadzi艂 si臋 z nowej posiad艂o艣ci po dw贸ch dniach a ja mia艂am wyrzuty, 偶e w og贸le grzeba艂am…

  • Unsusal suspect

    The great blue heron! I’d seen it long time ago on my neighbour’s roof. My dad saw it by the pond, but didn’t manage to take a photo. 聽7/10/17 I managed to take a very quick shot of it escaping from the garden, but I didn’t catch it well. 聽I saw it today in the morning, on my very own eyes. Majestic, beautiful, perfect. Here is the video! Widzia艂am j膮 ju偶 sporo wcze艣niej na dachu s膮siada. 聽Moi rodzice mieli szcz臋艣cie spotka膰 j膮 r贸wnie偶 w naszym ogr贸dku, ale nigdy nikomu nie uda艂o si臋 tego udokumentowa膰. Co prawda 7/10/2017 zrobi艂am jej szybk膮 fotk臋 podczas ucieczki z ogr贸dka, ale widzia艂am j膮 tylko przelotnie,…

  • Frogs’ concert

    It was just stunning. Sitting in the garden at night listening to frogs. They’re obviously want to mate and try to be as attractive as they can. Well, listening to their sexy call was just brilliant. Lots of newts swimming to the surface at night, too. Feels like the spring is coming, but still taking its time. Cold! W nocy 偶aby da艂y cudny koncert. A偶 do czwartej rano stawik by艂 pe艂en tych stworze艅 艣piewaj膮cych arie i serenady. Boj臋 si臋, 偶e jeszcze przyjdzie nawr贸t zimna i skrzek zamarznie, nie b臋dzie kijanek. Rano w stawiku wida膰 by艂o efekt tych 偶abich popis贸w, warto by艂o nie spa膰. W nocy uda艂o mi si臋 po raz…
