We are nearing the end of summer in our little rural village of Kisszékely. Our 3rd summer here and every one has been wonderfully beautiful, full of flowers and wildlife, sights and sounds I would never hear in the city.
I have collected together my 12 best summer photos to give you an idea of summer life in Hungary.
The glorious sunflowers of Hungary, all different shades of yellow attracting bees and insects all summer long.
As the late sun goes down over Kisszékely lake it reminds me of why we moved to such a tranquil place. So very peaceful.
Haley Husky loves to get involved in every aspect of gardening! She manages to find her way under my feet regularly!
Hungary are blessed with radiant orangey sunsets, this one was particularly beautiful.
I can’t resist a field of sunflowers in full bloom. The heads are left on until the plant is completely brown and ready for harvesting later in the year.
Our garden has many Hibiscus of varying colours white through pinks and purples. It would appear to be a popular easy to grow plant with many flowers all summer long.
This is my colourful view whilst relaxing on our verandah.
This is the view from our bedroom window… lots of delicious sunflower seeds for hungry finches.
The white roses have flowered three times this year producing a wonderful display.
Walking around the village I was taken in by this lovely front garden. The splash of red often seen in front of Hungarian houses pops out at you. In Hungary the residents are responsible for the grass verges outside their houses.
We are fortunate to have a fairly lively animal farm in the village with a huge variety of animals including there gorgeous donkeys. They were looking hopefully for something to nibble.
Country life in Kisszékely Hungary suits us very well. Now it’s time to prepare for crisp autumn walks and hot warming casseroles.
