My parents left today, driving back home to Prague. It is always a bit surreal to have a house full of life one minute and then have it all to oneself again the next.
I enjoy having visitors and my family is no exception. Particularly as the moments we get to spend together are few and far between...
The weather has turned for the better and it has been a wonderful summer week. I am so thankful that my mother and father got to see Scandinavia at it's very best, with beautiful sunny days, when warm easterly winds bring dry air, reviving the last summer month with visits to the beach, creating memories to last through the long winter ahead.
Nature is again all in bloom after receiving the vital sun light. My kaprifolium (honeysuckle) and roses are in their "second bloom" period. I love to see the presence of the fragrant flowers of the honeysuckle at the same time as the dark red berries, which are the fruits of the earlier June flowers. If the conditions are right, the lovely roses will last long into the time of the first frost.
