(almost) Summer time

I still have some time before I have to get up. So why not use it to write a lazy blog post?

I love being outside, the weather recently is wonderful! Sun is shining, there’s a little bit of wind and everything seems to be very summer-like. Even though we still have one month left of spring.

I took some random photos in the garden, using my new phone tripod. I didn’t notice my hands were shaking as much without it, haha.

Today I’m going to make a list of things I need to pack, and wash clothes I need to take… because I’m going on an adventure!

(Insert Bilbo and Gandalf)

An adventure?

An adventure.

I’m going to spend this weekend looking at the sea. I’m so excited! See you soon, have a wonderful day!

Spring snowflake

Leucojum vernum is a flower that likes to surprise everyone with it’s sudden appearance and disappearance. Tiny little spirit likes to cover the world with spring snow!

As you can see, these flowers look pretty similar to snowdrops, but are less common and appear in larger groups.

The details that make it easier to differentiate them are those tiny yellow dots. Aren’t they beautiful?

I could see them in a special place in the forest. The most charming view was a little stream surrounded by this magical snow.

To prevent people from damaging the forest a wooden path was made. It looked very nice, like a path made by forest creatures to lead humans away from their hidings!

I absolutely loved the experience. A little magic! :3

Ice ice baby

Very very cold but magical! Since I live in a big city, it’s usually too warm to walk on the frozen lake. The ice is just not safe at all. But this winter I was able to come and see the completely frozen lake! And people were surfing on ice!

And skating too. It was so cool! I couldn’t hide my excitement at all. The view was a pure winter happiness!

Of course, it was incredibly cold. The temperature was -14°C and even colder near the ice.

It didn’t keep me from walking on water :3

Such an adventure!!!!

Autumn

Autumn is my favourite season. Totally. I love warm drinks, cosy blankets and golden leaves everywhere. It’s been pretty warm past few days and I truly enjoyed it! Long walks in the forest, enjoying coffee or tea in the sun… it’s just perfect.

I’ve started a university! I’m studying English Philology and I’m also on Celtic Studies. All scraps of information about British Isles I had in my mind are slowly coming together. That’s quite an amazing experience!

Also, I discovered a few new places that offer great deals for students, especially when it comes to food. By the way, watermelon juice (in the photo above) is so delicious!

I tried some autumn options at Starbucks as well. Yummy ^^

Time to go back to study… See you next time! Bye bye  -^^-

Wild art

Art can be found in the most unexpected places. I went for a walk yesterday and I spotted some strange things. Mirrors, sculptures and others which I have no idea what to call. But I was quite sure they don’t belong near the lake. Or do they?


I took only two photos, since I didn’t have that much time. The first one is called “star”. Well, it was impossible to guess! Haha


The other one really caught my eye. This artwork is called “malum” (“evil” in latin). For me it represents the endless hole that swallows every good thought. It looks great, especially with the water around. By the way, did you know that “mal” in spanish means “bad”? I was very happy that I still remember something from spanish!

I will definitely come back and see the rest of the “wild” exhibition.

Do you like art?

Have a great, inspirational day!

The Old Zoo

Literally old zoo. There are two zoos in my city. The Old Zoo and the New Zoo. The New Zoo was built later and most of the animals were transferred from the Old to the New, so they can have a lot more space.

The Old Zoo was transformed into park and you can enter for free! But a lot of smaller animals are still there.

Let me introduce: black swan. Cool one. Likes to bite people. Thanks to that I could take a photo!

Here are the other birds. They are very pretty!

Look at these beauties. I absolutely love them! They are really friendly. They aren’t afraid of people at all.

I think I can call them my favourite animals!

I was quite surprised to see a herb garden in the zoo!

There are other magical places as well.

You can’t climb these stairs but they look pretty nice and a little bit wild.

Back to animals. There were sheep that were eating grass all the time. They weren’t bothered by people at all.

Adorable ❤

It was such a fun day!

And with the special someone who finally came back from his trip. Welcome back!

Have a great day everyone! See you really soon!

Drawing, painting

Hello!

I wanted to wait until I gather more pieces to show you, but no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t draw anything well. So I’m bringing you only two!


First one is koi fish 🎏 I don’t know much about koi, besides their colour, so I googled a picture and drew the one I saw. And the lotus flower next to it!

In the second picture you can see the mountains, a little bit of sky and the forest. I used watercolour for the sky and mountains. I’m pretty happy with the effect!

I’m trying to get better at colouring (all of my pictures used to be black and white!), drawing and other artistic stuff.

It’s fun! ^^

Have a great day and see you soon!
