Field of Rape

“Rape” is such an unfortunate name! I have feeling it’s canola?! Now all the canola fields are in bloom and they look so good against the blue sky or other “green” fields! So far it’s – GOOD! But then there is something I hate about these fields!!!! I really DO HATE!  And that is SPRAYING! Chemicals kill the bees and […]

Poor Little Linna!

My poor little Linna is ill! Yesterday I came back from a photoshoot and saw Linna and knew she is ill! She was 39.6°C yesterday late at night! It’s high! Very high! I know that others give medicine to get the temperature down, but I don’t. I believe that the high temperature is better than medicine. An immune system is […]

Sunny Day!

Goodmorning. It looks like today will be sunny! I love snowy sunny days. I haven’t been outside walking for more than 2 months! Sounds crazy, but that is my life lately! I will go out for a walk today, cause I’m home and it’s sunny! Do you like walking? Ilze

Misty Mornings

Beautiful misty mornings are here! I love those mornings but don’t like the fact that autumn is coming! And by autumn I don’t mean colorful leaves, sunny days and stunning views! What I don’t like is rainy weeks, muddy roads, blues and sneeze that comes with it… Am I the only one struggling to smile and be happy in late […]

Full Moon & Mosquitoes!

Beautiful full moon tempted me to go outside at night (I’m a bit afraid of the dark, if alone outside) with a camera in hand. Is it just me or are there more mosquitoes this year? I bet Mosquitoes number hasn’t changed. That is because so many people have left Latvia to work in UK, Ireland, Norway, etc., only a few […]

Gauja National Park – Ligatne: Cliffs and Nature

Those who follow me since the beginning know that I’m not interested in seeing cities and museums. I love nature! We opened our caravan season on Friday, 4 May by heading to the rural property of our friends’ family near Līgatne (Latvia) in Gauja National Park territory. All the property is suited along the cliff and has a wonderful magical forest! […]

Yesterday’s walk

It feels right to live here in the countryside of Latvia! So, so right! I like to walk and observe all the beauty Mother Nature can give to us! A beautiful day was yesterday and the new one is coming today! I promised myself to walk a bit every day. Since it’s so beautiful feels like a reward for walking. Today it’s […]

New picnic spot

We found a new picnic spot in the nearest forest. I know it’s not much, but really, what you need if you get there by car!? You can take your own picnic table and stools, right? We love short picnics in forests! Ilze

Lucky day

I was so lucky to capture strange white frozen growths on treas around foxholes. At first, it looked so weird that I didn’t allow girls to touch it! Actually, we didn’t touch it at all! Later I found this article:  Mystery of HAIR ICE solved: Strange white frozen growths found on trees are engineered by fungus Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3171935/Mystery-HAIR-ICE-solved-Strange-white-frozen-growths-trees-engineered-fungus.html#ixzz56hkwhlH6 Ilze
