A seemingly unending task.  He's doing it the old-fashioned way, with no leaf blower. I hate those things.

ABC WEDNESDAY--"T" is for "trompe l'oeil"

"Trompe l'oeil" indeed, since if you walk right in, you'll bang your nose.

See other Ts on Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC WEDNESDAY.

Masha and the Bear

The Russian cartoon, Masha and the Bear, is tremendously popular here.  My granddaughter adores it, and has a Masha doll and the Bear. To quote Wikipedia:

"Masha is depicted as a precocious, happy, kind, and mischievous little girl, while the bear is a fatherly retired circus performer that tries to keep Masha out of trouble but often ends up the unintended victim of her mischief. There are a number of supporting characters in the series, including Masha's cousin, a penguin adopted by the Bear, a young panda cub who is the Bear's cousin, a tiger that worked with the bear in the circus, and a female bear that is the object of the bear's affections, along with a rabbit, squirrels and hedgehogs, two wolves who live near the bear's house, and a pig, goat, and dog who live in Masha's front yard."

 Have a look at this cute video.

It was a coffee pot yesterday, now it's tea time.

This mural is so cheerful that even if you didn't want any tea to begin with, you feel like a cup.

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY--Turkish coffee

Not much of a shadow, but it's there.  Two Turkish ăćezve against a typical Pirot rug.  Remember, Serbia was under Turkish rule for 500 years...
