summer of feathers



This summer I keep finding so many feathers! Most of them are from the hawks that are living close to our house. You can not imagine how good they smell! It's similar to the smell of a baby head :)
But there is also a feather from a swan, raven, magpie and a little one with a yellow part, it might be from a greenfinch.

Of course they are making soap bubbles :)

summer lilac





With my butterfly summer dress under the butterfly lilac. (at least this is how we call the summer lilac in Austria) I don't want this summer to end! I don't feel ready for autumn yet, even though it is one of my favorite seasons. How about you? I still need more warm sun on my skin to be ready for the cold again.

Drying herbs


Drying herbs for winter.
For those who are interested:
I cut them with scissors, because I find it easier than with a knife.
And I dry them in the baking oven at 50 degrees and leave the oven door a little gap opened, so that the damp can escape. Every now and then I turn the herbs while drying until I feel they are ready. I let them cool down and put them in jars. So easy, but so practically when you don't have to buy all those herbs in the shops later in the year.

Have a good weekend!

sisters & sunflowers




When my sister was here for a longer visit, we discovered this spot full of little sunflowers. These pictures were taken with my instant camera. I should use it more often ;)

garden update




The tomato saison has started, I have 8 different sorts this year.
I already made homemade ketchup and dried a lot of chives and parsley for winter.
Despite for the shitty weather, it is a good gardening year!
And yes, the snails and I try to split my veggies and berries equitably ;)

summer in the forest part 2





I love how these shots turned out.
Analogue pictures and their surprises!

When I first saw the second picture, I had to laugh so much! I don't know, it just amused me how it turned out!
When I took it, I assumed that parts of my body were also visible, but as you can see, only the face is visible which makes it even better.
