Wildflowers at midsummer


Here are some of the magnificent wild flowers in my garden today (12 June 2016). Some of them are late to blossom due to more than a month of cold, wet weather, but often the buds are just as beautiful as the full blooms. Transylvania’s wildflower meadows are recognised more and more as one of the great treasures of Europe, and it’s vital to conserve them and appreciate them. Talking of appreciation, have I got the names right? I’m no botanist, so if you know better, please let me know and I can correct any mistakes.

Floss returns!


Floss and the circus_Cover - smallFloss, the black fluffy puppy, who was lost and rescued in 2017, is BACK! His true story (in real life, he was Pita, the mongrel of Magura).

So many kids loved Floss’s story (Floss the lost puppy) that they demanded a sequel. So on Saturday 17th November, his new book is launched in Romexpo, Bucharest’s exhibition centre.

Floss & the Circus puts the little dog in the centre of the ring, right in the spotlight with the audience agog… Will he survive his dangerous stunt? Will he find the runaway horse? Will he save the thief’s life? It’s a wild holiday for Floss, Thea and Robbie when they meet the strangest circus on earth. They discover that however odd and different people look on the outside, they are just the same as everyone else on the inside: kind and brave and amazing.
