Motoristin Mutsi at home and garden -

Weather has been really warm lately, and it has caused accelerated growth in my garden. Flip side of it is drought. I am not complaining - after last summer this is so much lovelier. Blooming of apple trees is almost over, but lilacs have already started. The smell...it is just heady... Even though apple is loosing greatest blooming, Malus toringo var. sargentii starts. With it's scent it brings me back to childhood summernights. Blooming rowan means there won't be damages made by Argyresthia...

This week I was in Strasbourg with  +27C and I was prepared to come home to boots and jacket-mode still but alas! - I brought the warmth with me and we celebrated  Mother's Day in +25C and sunshine. Weather is always such a factor here. First outdoor breakfast (mmmm, ok: lunch) of the year! Which I made myself altough offered otherwise; oat-chia pancakes with peanut butter and berries. Not the prettiest, but more yummy than one (me) would think! The outdoor-summer-renovation-mode for the...
