    Enjoying my last full week caring for my piggies in my Sunday pearls 🐷💋🐷💋🐷💋
.
.
.
Some things I learned my ✌ year raising pigs:
- Yorks have longer and more destructive noses....🤦
.
- Pigs really can be escape artists - did you know they are the fifth most intelligent animal, ahead of dogs!!
.
- We learned we needed more ventilation in the barn and battled and beat pig influenza with the help of a great vet.
.
- Happier than a pig in mud is a real thang lol - Pigs have few sweat glands and a naturally high body temp, hence, nice cool mud is not only fun but a way to regulate their body temp! So I kept a regular mud bath going with the hose during the warm summer days.
.
Another year, learned a lot and am happy to say we've sold the farm fresh meat already to excited families eager for the homegrown taste ❤

    🌿 Better late than never. This is the last weekend of the gorgeous lavender fields so we made it just in time to witness how gorgeous these are. The fields are no longer bright purple and the sunflowers have gone, but they are still so beautiful and the smell... oh the smell is everything.
.
Hitchin Lavender is beautiful with gorgeous views of Hertfordshire, a super cozy barn/cafe with play area and delicious lavender ice-cream 🍦
.
Next year we will be back a lot earlier to catch the sunflowers too 🌻 Have you been a lavender field this year? Where did you go? It's our first time so next year I want to try a few!

    Ребёнок сам готовит себе ужин🍡
Вообще Варин деревенский рацион состоит из арбуза, гороха, черноплодки (как может нравится эта ягода?!🙈) и хлеба с сосисками, поджаренными на костре. Удивительно, но всеядная девочка не хочет есть наивкуснейшее мясо с картошкой, томлёное в глиняном горшке в русской печи. Возможно, это из-за того, что у прабабушки конфеты всегда в свободном доступе🤔😅

    One from Switzerland. I’ve never been before & i have to say it was even more beautiful than I had hoped, driving over the top of the alps was both scary and wonderful especially! But actually, spending time beside the lake until the sun sets will be one of my lasting memories.

A fair amount of our holidays involve water. Sea, lakes and rivers, we love them all.

I’m missing the lazy days of holiday this week, throwing ourselves back into the whirlwind of wet floors and back to school soon organisation - work is still a little on hold. Maybe next week.

For now there’s a long weekend to enjoy x

    Lost in late summer.

We came home a few days ago but my heart is still travelling around Europe. We crammed in 7 countries, though we could have spent much longer exploring more! So much to see / so little time... In other news, my blog has been nominated for an award, if you ever read / enjoy it, it would mean the world to me if you voted for me please! I’ve popped the link in my profile, thank you.

Here’s to long summers hey? xx

    CYNARA | Min farfar var en kreativ själ med gröna fingrar som älskade skogen. Idag är det begravning och jag är så tacksam för allt värdefullt han lärt mig.
