    1. Oh yes, Nadezda, the water is warm!
      I enjoy swimming very much and feel very comfortable in the water. Some years ago, floating there in the lake I noticed I'm falling asleep... and decided it's safer to return to the shore. :)
      Coming soon over to see how your weather is now!

    1. Kiitos, Sari! :)
      Saimme Pentik-näkkileipää lahjapakkauksessa lautasliinojen yms. kanssa. Luulen että sitä saa Pentikin verkkokaupan ja myymälöiden lisäksi myös tavarataloista.

  5. Your posts never cease to amaze me Sara, beautiful!
    I am feeling rather warm now and could do with dipping my toes in the icy cool water along with the water lillies with a cool drink of buttermilk. Well no actually, I would prefer your Mother's doughnuts and coffee :)
    It wont be long before the birds are feasting on those berries!
    Have a wonderful week in your beautiful part of the World :)

    1. Thank you, Prunella! :)
      Cold buttermilk is very refreshing on a hot summer day.
      The red currants grow on old, wild shrubs and we are rather relaxed with them. My father did, however, hang a hawk-looking bird scarer above them. We'll see if it works.
      You too, enjoy the summer! <3

  8. Ihan mahtava meininki :)
    Päivät niin helteisiä ja öisin on usvaa.
    Ihanaa ja nautinnollista loppuviikkoa!

  9. Piimä virkistää helteellä. Etenkin jos lorauttaa sekaan appelsiinituoremehua.

    Niin kauniit kuvat että pitää ihan huokaista ihastuksesta.
    Punaiset viinimarjat nimeän suosikkikuvakseni tästä sarjasta :)

  19. Lovely sights of summer and wow, a fabulous lipstick! Lucky you to wear this colour, I am too fair to pull it off but think it is a luscious shade of red.
    Interesting that you drink buttermilk, my late father used to...but for me it is a liquid to bake with.
    Hope to see you at Maggie's for MM next week.
    Have a good weekend!

  20. Ihanat mausteiset värit! Kesää parhaimmillaan. Meillä jo linnut napostelivat nuo punaiset marjat suoraan puskista. Tuo yki roskiksen aprikoosikuorinta on mun lemppari :) Ihanaisia kesäpäiviä sinulle!

  21. Hi Sara. Your photos are so bright and colorful. Really pretty. I always enjoy seeing your flowers, surprised and I don't know why that you grow much the same as we grow here. And the lip stick. Glamorous.
