Yet another breakfast view

Yes, summer is definitely here and with it the life at Pruga as we planned and imagined… Quick overview in pictures of the last month and a half. We are enjoying it all, guests are lovely, breakfast routine has been established. In it there is a time for making the cake, setting the table, buying fresh bread/fruit/cheese and even for a quick coffee in Pazin before we come back and serve it. That is largely thanks to our perfect guests who all wanted breakfast after 9 – people after our own hearts.

Building work

There was so much rain and cold this spring that we finished pergola only towards end of May – seems like ages ago…

Is it too high?

Peony

There was a peony bush that was dug out and over by the builders many times during the build and I was sure it was gone. Still, it showed up again with only one, albeit glorious flower.

Food

We had some interesting food…

Chanterelles found in the village (not by us, but was a gift from a neighbour)

Yes, there still was quite a lot…

Shelving to be for our apartment – still not in a state of sharing photos, but reasonably functional

I found that one great things about kids is that they really are willing to help…

      Naša maca je velika frendica s psima, pogotovu ako joj dozvole da ih gnjavi – a polunaš Miki joj dozvoli nevjerojatne stvari. Šarmirala bi ona i Maxa 🙂 xxxx
