Delightful Poppy Seeds

 

 

” Be quick!” exclaimed I and hastily inserted my lenses to the camera. Fortunately, the weather promised to be sunny and not too hot, thus I had good light conditions to shoot poppy seeds. They were gracefully turning their heads to my camera in modest attempts to show their most attractive bends. Through my viewfinder I spotted their delicate fringe petals that were easily blown away.  Only their fluffy turbine-like heads were curiously casting a glance at you. It was tempting to make a closeup in black and white, there is something intriguing in all colorless pictures. It helps the photographer to go back in time when there was no alternative to black and white images. Do not click endlessly, just take delight in capturing the scenes. Maybe I am lack of technical skills, but I am in ecstasies about photographing the beauty surrounding us!

A Picnic IS More Than…

“A picnic is more than eating a meal, it is a pleasurable sate of mind.”
DeeDee Stovel

Isn’t it deliciously said, my dear little Friends,

Who is with me for a picnic today?

There is nothing more delightful than a BBQ in a good company, right? Where did you go for a picnic last time?

You know I thought that sometimes we should get out of homes and social networks, we have to switch off our laptops and phones and throw then out of our busy minds. And why not to invite people to share with them your Sunday picnic!

The concept of the picnic dates back more than 250 years when it was considered to be a big event in the social calendar where the guests contributed food to the party. Now picnics get a more personal meaning. We love going out for picnics with our families and friends.

The word ‘picnic’ can be traced back to French roots almost a century after it was first seen in French originating from the word ‘pique-nique.’

The form of the picnic basket has evolved over the years to transform from a simple woven wicker basket to house more complicated features like separate hot and cold compartments, a detachable blanket for picnics and even a wine chiller. Nowadays, our picnic baskets look differently. Surely, we can put there some meat or fish and mostly vegetables with some beverages to refresh under hot summer sun. Yet I hope picnics are not so much for food joy as for the joy of being together and spend time with people whom you care for. Such a hectic lifestyle requires some unity with nature and your loved ones in calmer surroundings. Why not to grab some fishrods as well and impress your family with freshly caught fish that can be grilled with seasonings, hmm, I can nose the smell…yam. There is nothing perfect than a sip of tea  while watching the sunset over the river on the blanket! Such moments cannot be bought or found at social networks, they are real not virtual ones! Let’s treasure and enjoy them!

Yammm!

Happy Mother’s Day

Flowers-5

Dear Mothers,

This gentle tulip I am presenting you today with the warmest hugs and wishes! Today in Ukraine we celebrate this special day and I couldn’t resist writing a couple of words on this lovely holiday!

Early Mother’s Day celebrations can be dated back to the spring celebrations to honor Rhea, the Mother of the Gods, in ancient Greek civilization, according to some sources.

The modern-day origins of Mother’s Day can be attributed to two women – Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis, who were important in establishing the tradition in the United States.

I am grateful to these women who paid a special attention towards such an important even as honoring our mothers. Our mothers are the most important people for us, they devoted their lives to us and the least we can do is tell them a huge THANK YOU and give them the tightest HUG!

Whenever it’s celebrated in your country, please visit your moms and tell them how much you love them!

Love you all,

Yours A

Above Me Are the Alps

DSCN2608

My dear Friends,

Above me are the Alps and I found the way to get to them. I have never thought that I might be lack of right words to describe my feelings…but the time I saw them I couldn’t whisper a sound. I felt that mountains live in me, they are my vital part, I cannot live without them. John Muir said “We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.” Lord Byron could not resist the beauty of Alps, so do I…

My thoughts are not gathered yet, I am like that castle in the center of the most beautiful and I am ready for a plunge…

Have a wonderful and inspiring week!

Love you all,

Yours Writer
