Vegetable Fantasy Recipe and photos of Russian nature
Not so long ago we spent a wonderful weekend in a small desolated village where Vasya's grandparents live during the summer season. It is situated in the forests of Tver region, just 3 hours away from Moscow. There are no creature comforts, no water supply system, no sewage, no mobile communication and no internet. But it's a heavenly beautiful place!
We love to spend time in this green and quiet corner of Russia. It's so amazing to be close to nature and to rest from the hustle and bustle of a big city! The sun is caressing, the air is sufficiently warm and filled with the sweet odours of blossomed trees. It's a great time for swimming in the river and not get eaten by omnipresent mosquitoes.
Flowers are everywhere! The fruit trees are in full blossom and the ground is colored with the small wild flowers, dandelions and daisies.
I can't miss the opportunity to catch the beautiful moments of spring. I love making the photos of nature! And while I am walking around the garden with my camera, Vasya is busy in the garden. That's his obsession and he is very talented in planting. I admire how he handles the plants and how he feels their needs! I am absolutely incompetent in this, I used to grow flowers on the windowsill, but it was never successful.
It becomes quite hot under the sun. After great vegan lunch, cooked by Vasya's granny, we take the bikes and ride to the river. The landscape is so picturesque that cries out to be painted!
Seems like we lost track of time. We came back after the sunset. Being in the country is wonderful, but we have to come back to Moscow the next day.
On Monday I cooked a dish we have recently loved! It is made of new vegetables and perfect for spring or summer lunch. The taste is tender and delicious! And I love the colors!
