Waiting for Shooting Stars


By midsummer, the birds’ cheerful singing had subsided, as all their time was now taken by parental care. Only occasionally, some individual “singers” could be heard, but it usually happens if they want to warn “outsiders” that the territory is occupied.

In July, the time of exuberant blooming came to the meadows with their variety of herbs. The polygonum and the bellflower, filipendulas and geraniums spread across the meadows as a motley carpet. The blooming herbs filled the air with subtle floral fragrance. Walking along the path on the Kalinov Medow, among the islands of blooming herbs, one could notice how their aromas changed as one walked by. This summer’s frequent rains made the air very humid, and as a result the floral aromas became much stronger. And as soon as the sun comes out, the grass dries off immediately and, together with the rich fragrance, a steady buzz spreads above the meadow. Thousands, millions of bees and other insects hasten to stuff themselves full with nectar and to pollinate their “providers.” PHOTOS >>>
