    Spring is in the air

    …and that helped me to take my camera out of its bag and go with my hubby for the first photo walk this year. I can tell you, I thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. Stop No. 1: That construction in the background is a transformer station. It sits amid fields and buzzes quite aloud while transforming and transporting the electricity. Very…

    Supernatural or not

    I had quite a weird experience a few days ago which on the one hand one could explain easily and on the other hand one couldn’t explain that easily and I would like to share it with you. On Sunday, my hubby Milan and I went on a trip to castle festivities in Velhartice. When we were almost there, we…

    Spring in and around the village

    This morning my hubby and I  took our cameras and went for a walk around the village we live in. Temperatures have dropped significantly lately and cold winter was blowing this morning but spring views made up for the unfavourable weather. First we visited the old local cherry tree orchard where we wanted to take some photos. The orchard is most beautiful…

    Spring wandering

    Every year, when cherry trees open their beautiful white flowers and enchant me with their charm, I feel compelled to go and capture the beauty. Last year I missed that occasion which doesn’t last very long but this year I took advantage of a nice weekend afternoon and asked my husband to go with me to the cherry tree orchard…

    More spring sights

    On our way to and from the cherry tree orchard which I showed you in my previous post we saw much more than just the orchard. Near by the orchard there was a wet area spotted with plenty of marsh marigolds whose bright yellow flowers were shining in the grass. Blooming trees were all around and when I’m looking at…

    Cherry tree orchard

    There is a small cherry tree orchard by the village where we live and we were walking there a month ago. I didn’t take any photo in the orchard as I didn’t see anything what would have attracted my attention, I took just a few photos around. Like this one: Then the trees came into bloom and were visible prominently…

    Perspective

    “We are set in our ways, bound by our perspectives and stuck in our thinking.” Joel Osteen The other day I was going home from work, driving my car and listening to the radio. I was in a bad mood because I made a great deal of effort at work and credit for it was given indirectly to my colleague.…

    April changes

    On 1 April which was the last Easter day we spent a few hours in the wood which is situated near our house. Although there were still some remnants of snow, the air wasn’t that cold and the walk was very pleasant. The only thing which made me feel a bit disturbed were traces of wild boars’ presence. They say…

    Spring in my garden

    In the Czech Republic we have a saying: “Get to a stove in March and stay there in April too”. It rhymes in the Czech language and I find myself repeating it each and every spring. It emphasises the fact that there are always a few wonderful sunny days at the beginning of spring and then temperature drops again and…
