It’s been a beautiful weekend in Warsaw with temperatures above 20C both days.
The “March Hare” cafe on Moliera where we often spend time waiting for Zosia to finish ballet. They do a good latte and fresh orange juice, also breakfasts are good – scrambled, fried or omelette:
This is often followed by the Sakana Sushi bar, also on Moliera where the current favourite of Zosia & mum is the cooked salmon maki with the brown sticky sauce and sesame seeds. I think this is one of the better sushi bars in Warsaw, a bit of a maki focus but it is all good quality and the chefs will rustle up whatever you like:
In the garden, the brightest spark by far is the “purple bush”, which looks like nothing at all for most of the year but goes crazy in spring!
Also looking good at the moment is the white blossom on the tree by the garage [later edit – this tree sadly now blown down in a gale]. This photo is a good example of how you can get a better shot when you spend a little time getting the exposure right. With either P or Auto mode this would have been washed out with so much white in the sunlight so I used the ‘spot metering’ button on the white blossom and ended up with something a lot more acceptable.
We’ve also added a few species to the ‘spotted’ list recently – bats (battus batticus) flying overhead of an evening, big green frogs (frogus greenicus) down by the lake and owls (owlus hooticus) heard but not seen in the woods at night.
