garden update // June 30

Yesterday we went to the countryside again.
This time it was sunny and warm
and we enjoyed a day out of Moscow.

Finally our peas are ready to be eaten! I don't know how I developed this passion for peas but every year I desperately wait for July to have sweet peas. The last two years I haven't just depended on a farmer's market, we started growing our own pea plants. And I bet these peas are even sweeter and juicier than regular peas from a market! Maybe because we put so much effort and love into them... :-)

Another love of mine is cornflowers. It might be an image from the childhood - a wheat field with peas, cornflowers and poppies. A Russian field in July as a picture of summertime. Now in a city it's hard to see cornflowers athough bunbun sometimes finds a bouquet for me. This year mom grew a little patch of this awesomeness! I spent so much time yesterday jumping around the blooming part of our garden with and without a camera. All this makes me so happy.

One of my favourite parts of summers is the flowers and everything that start to show up! I love it! Those peas look totally scrumptious, totally craving some now!

It's looking fantastic. I also love to garden. Last weekend we were picking snappea's from the garden. Now I'm just waiting for my tomatoes to ripen a bit. It's such a pleasure.
