Here are the pics I took near the city where my bf used to live and was born. It's a near village called Křenov. :)

Links are from facebook and actually I really did not do anything to make the pics look better (like more light etc...). So they are not anything extra :)

Trutnov:

The interesting car in Trutnov :D Welcome to NDR  :evil2:




Some nice sculputers in front of the new modern Theatre on one of the Trutnov squares. Everybody liked these Magrays!




In Křenov:

Humulus leave in the autumn:




Aronia melanocarpa :)


Aronia leaves:


Nice yellow flowers (forgot to ask for name)


Tagetes/African Marigold with honeybee x)


Tagetes:


Marigold with Bombus terrestris :) or Bumblebee  :wub:



Pink flower:


Žižka is prowling I.  :hop:


Žižka si prowling II.


A beetle which I found under a rotten apple :)


Another flower:


Some fungus on the apple tree:


A little blossom :)


Wonderful colours aren't they?!  :wOOt:


A centipede which we found when cutting some wood for the fire:


Just something :)


Grasshopper:


Butterfly wing in the window of the shed:


Another nice colours:


And another mushrooms :)


Forgotten old cottage:


These flowers I remember from my childhood. My grandmas use to have whole bouqets of these flowers - dried :) And made decorations from it.


Žižka wants another meat from me  :wub:


It's a bird. No, it's a plane! It's a spiderman :D He had a loooong web (about 5 meters) from the altan to thuja.


Moses spiderman walking on air!


Žižka and her mouse she was prowling for whole day:


Žižka's trophy :) The more I was taking pics of her and making a video the more she was playing with the mouse and in the end she brought me the mouse to take a pic of her trophy :)



Now about Žižka :). She's a wandering cat who simply lives wild way and people in the village (especially the parents and grandparents of my bf) give her some food in front of the cottage and made some little house for her. She's now with kittens again. x) She has so cute belly with little fluffy balls inside  :wub: :wub: :wub:
As You might notice she has only one eye. As she is wild she often have to fight with the tomcats etc... and probably in one of the fights her eye was hurt and she got infection inside but as far as they told me it's many years ago and when they found her and brought her to veterinian the eye wasn't already to save anymore :(
This is why we call her Žižka despite the fact that Žižka is male surname coming from Czech history. We call her after this brave Hussite commander Jan Žižka z Trocnova a Kalicha - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_%C5%BDi%C5%BEka. In one of his battles he lost one of his eyes and he was very very famous for that... (later in another battle he lost the second eye too). I bet that in any pic around the web You'll find his pics with patch in front of his one eye! :)
But then again, who does.

Great pics, Kris! Thank you. :)

Too many at once to comment all photos that deserve to be commented... The car is a "Trabbi" (actually "Trabant"), a famous car from the GDR. The aronia leaves have an amazing colour! The opulent unknown flowers are Dahlias. And the strawflower / immortelle is beautiful, too. We have similar ones in our garden this year, coloured a very sunny yellow, and of course I snatched a couple of blossoms, too...

Thank you and cheers!

I knew, Markus, You will tell me the names of the flowers  :fish:  :wOOt: Thank You! Yes... Trabant. It's very famous car around the world but here in cz especially I guess.

Few years ago You could met them in bazaars for 40 Euro  :lol: but with time their price got higher cause of the simple thing - many people tend to collect them. Otherwise it's just a tin can :D So now they cost usually about 280 Euro.

We have a joke on it that if You fill the engine tank full the car has double price  :lol:


Oh yes, Žižka is wonderful x) I am happy she was there and  could eat from our good meat :D

:D Despite the fact I like that car cause many owners (especially young people!  :blink: ) But the car and make many fixes on it, and bring it to good state and fine design - like with this blue/flowered one :) ... Once I saw Trabant overtaking Maserati on the motorway  :lol3: It must have had a motor of some even more fine car than Maserati.

Hehe...

The trabbi is definitely not a tin can. It's more of a plastic box but it was well known as "Pappe" ("cardboard") or "Rennpappe" ("racing cardboard"). :lol3: And we had the same joke over here, Kris: How do you double the value of a trabbi? Fill it up!

About the flowers, you know I just can't resist. :lol3: The plain unknown ones are Cosmos, btw. :fish:

Anyway, nice discoveries you've made there. You must be walking around with open eyes in order to make such photos. :thumbup: I like it when people have this attitude... And yes, your brave one-eyed three-coloured cat is a cute one. :)

Cheers!

Does Žižka have semi-long hairs? I think her fur is bigger than my cats' future furs. :D

I do not know actually but it seems so. :) But that might be also cause by the fact that she's freely living cat so her fur is simply specified to that. But cause of her special colours of her fur I think she is half "paper cat" and half wild cat.
But then again, who does.

Wonderful colours, Kris! Thank you. :)

There's a little dome on the building on the left side. Is it anything special?

Cheers!
