Relaxing At Dacha - Nature in Different Looks

Going to my parents is a total relax for me in a sense of being close to nature. My dear Mum and Dad have wonderful place to be in any kind of days, hot or cloudy. This place is called dacha. And it means a world to me - a connection to flora and fauna, to what nature gives and for what I have to be thankful for. The place my parents own needs loads of care, anyway whatever they are able to accomplish in a year brings much of satisfaction and happiness, I just follow the flow. My and my D could enjoy these sweet raspberries straight away from the bush.
And these juicy berries called "irga'" in Russian, they color your tongue... you know what I am talking about :)
Oh yes, the flowers called after my name "Anyuta's eyes" got a wild card entry this year - self-sown.
A mayor flower with a bee collecting the pollen. Cannot invent a  more summery picture!
Always used to like a blossoming potato plant...
Thanks to my parents once again, but they created a perfect place living for lizards - a pile of stones in front of our dacha house. We saw many lizards during our last weekend stay at dacha and I always associate them with Goffman's tales (though he had green snakes actually).Amazing creatures used to be living close to humans.
This year we have even got some mushrooms, though not good for purpose of eating.
My Mum collected gifts of nature and embellished the house with them in the main room...
and in my and my D's room.
 In the night we had a candle lit dinner as the electricity still hasn't been provided at the area. I don't complain at all. My mum also liked this unplanned Gothic chic. Same flowers looked magical then... Okay, not everything what is candle lit is called Gothic, but forgive me my mood that night, especially after few  glasses of red wine.
Perhaps I will stop here with my last weekend impressions and let you to enjoy, decide, judge, adore, whatever I offered to your attention today. I am still with my parents and will have few more days to soak my native place's spirit for the next year ... I didn't abandon my crochet completely, so will share some small work too later on.
Blessings to all of you and sorry for not being able to check out your blogs! I will do this very soon :) Thanks for all lovely comments you left on my last post- I appreciate you are with me :) Good night, my dears!

  1. We visited just such a place long ago eastern Europe. Better than camping out, since there was an actual building. No electricity can sometimes be very relaxing and soothing. Enjoy your last few days and absorb all the goodness to take back home with you.

  6. Beautiful! raspberries are one of my favorites, but fresh from the bush blackberries are quite nice too (I stole some yesterday while working)
