Autumn view from my kitchen window..

11th November 2014

Today is the Independence Day so it is public holiday and we celebrate our Independence.

The Polish Independence Day commemorating Poland’s regained independence on 11th November 1918 after 123 years of partitions and rule by Russia, Prussia and Austria is one of the most important national holidays in Poland. Most Poles spend it in the company of friends and family, enjoying their day off.

But the part of country - Upper Silesia where I live came back to Poland after WWII. 

Yesterday I was at my summer house where we spend the long weekend the weather is perfect this year. November is very sunny and hot . I love spending time at my home. Especially I love sitting in my kitchen and observing daily routine of people..and do nothing...  
The monument which commemorates veterans of the WWI.

The last daises



My quince.. I am going to make tincture for Christmas



View from my kitchen window

And vandals which have stolen all my nuts. On day I will kill them.. Ugly creatures..

  1. I really like the photo 2873. I've hear of larch trees, but I don't know if we have any here. What is the bird that has stolen your nuts? It is not called a vandal, I think.

    1. Andrew, the larch tree is the only coniferous tree which lose their needles for winter in my climate. The vandals are rooks which have stolen my nuts. I am angry about it because every year I bake a cake with my own ecological nuts for Christmas. But luckily I have some from previous year..

  6. I'm curious about the tincture you are making from your quince, too. Is it a drink? Medicinal? Lovely views from your kitchen. My views are all white now -- from snow.

  11. You have some nice views/fences in your neighborhood. Sorry that the rook (we call them crows here) stole your nuts. They need to eat too and really are fun birds to watch. I leave peanuts out for them everyday.
