Last Sunday we had a bit of a creative argument with Eddie. I said the cloud looked like a bighorn sheep, while my little man insisted it was a Mummy whale with two babies in the deep blue sea. What do you see?
20.04: I have spotted this gorgeous European Peacock (Aglais io) in our garden. It kept fluttering its wings, and I took 40+ photos, just clicking non-stop before I managed to catch a perfect moment. Love this photo, and feel mighty proud of it. In Russia this butterfly is known as "pavlinii glaz", literally a peacock's eye.
21.04: Eddie still gets pretty tired after school, and often falls asleep around 5 or 6pm. I was chatting with him, he was playing with his toys one moment, then I went to the kitchen to make a cup of tea. A couple of minutes later I found him fast asleep, semi-standing, with his face down. This photo is surely deserving to be counted among the family classics. One to show his future girlfriend perhaps?
22.04: We have two juneberry plants in the garden. I love their berries, so sweet and juicy. They grow in abundance in my home town, that's why I planted them in our garden, to recreate a piece of homeland. Their blossom is white and fragile, pretty and mildly fragrant.
24.04: This pretty green Euphorbia characias wulfenii has been growing in our garden for years, just outside our kitchen windows.

25.04: The plum blossom has already almost all gone, and the apple trees only just started to show the bright pink buds, which soon will go paler and paler as they unravel and grow bigger.
