Autumn Days

Sunny and rather warm days continue into Autumn. I have just read the most peculiar news in our local newspapers: the source of our river dried this summer for the first time in history! The water is so low that you can cross it wherever you want. This small amount of water comes from the two streams that miraculously still have some water. There is no rain on a horizon at least for another week and the temperatures remain the same - about 26°C (79 F). At least, it is not so hot and steamy as it was in summer.

Mantis religiosa

I found this praying mantis into my vegetable garden, climbing the kohlrabi leaf. In the garden, most blooms turn into fruits.

Lunaria annua (Honesty)

Chaenomeles japonica (Japanese Quince)

Pyracantha coccinea (Firethorn)

Anemone japonica 


  1. Your weather is almost the same as ours this year. Record heat, record drought. I feel for you, and hope you get rain soon. Love the honesty plant! And the pyracantha is beautiful. I had one once. I miss it every year.

  2. Hot here too. Nearly setting records for highest temps: 88 today. It is supposed to be 69 tomorrow. Hopefully. Weather is just so unpredictable. Hope you have rain soon.

  3. Very cool images Vesna. I hope you get your needed rain. It is not good when the streams and rivers dry.

  4. We are having the same sort of weather here too

  5. Divni su dani zaista,ali malo kiše ne bi škodilo,suša je strašna,usprkos tome tvoj vrt je divan i živahan u svakom smislu,uživaj..veliki pozdrav:)

  6. Spring here and our honesty is just starting to flower, such a gorgeous plant that really marks the season.
