Dear friends! This Summer will be as 'strange' as the Spring was. I hope the sweet memories of the Super Summer 2007 will help us to stay in a good mood!

I did my holyday-shopping early in the morning.
Tomorrow we have Frohnleichnam.

Friday they predict very hot weather, so I feel
pleasant with the cool temperatures today.

Der Regen hat dem Garten gut getan. :)

Guten Morgen mit einem starken Herkules!

Mervi. gestern Abend war ich leider vor deiner Einladung auf dem Sofa eingeschlafen.
Dafuer bin ich heute die Erste auf der Matte, weil der Gaertner kommt. Der Gaertner ist aber der Fruehaufsteher, nicht ich!
Morgen ist hier Fronleichnam, also wieder ein Feiertag.

Ich wuensche einen erfolgreichen Hump Day mit morgendlichen Gruessen!

Another destination on my virtual visit to this year's cubs is in today's Knutis Weekly. Liitle Nana is a beautiful white cub and is another melon loving Polar. I am sorry not to see her live, but I have to admit the travel part is something I do not miss.
Hope Uncle Sergej will create a special White Goddess cocktail.

Liebe Mervi,

die Namensdeutung passt prima zu dieser Wassernixe, die sich sehr geschickt im "Wellengang" der Youkon Bay bewegt. Die Felsenhoehe war ihr dann doch etwas suspekt, um der Melone nachzuspringen.
Das sind wunderschoene Fotos und ein feines Video vom Zoo Hannover, dem ich weiterhin viel Glueck bei der Aufzucht wuensche!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Once again the grocery shopping is done so we have food for both us and Mimmi & Nalle. :D

Ludmila - I had a good laugh when I saw the photo of Sango. It immediately made me think of the crumpy cat. :D

Annemarie - I guess you're satisfied with your 'new life' in Berlin. :D

As many of you have already noticed (I saw the comments) there's a nice article of NANA IN HANNOVER in KWM. You will love the 'White Goddess'!

I wish everybody a most pleasant Tuesday! Don't forget to keep the distance - wear a mask where it's necessary!

Yeo: Gestern hatte ich einen knuipe-freien Tag, so kann ich Dir erst heute zum Hochzeitstag gratulieren. Sicherlich hattest Du eine schoene Zeit mit der ganzen Familie.

Liebe Grüsse an alle!

Herzliche Glueckwuensche zum Hochzeitstag!
It was not fun for the keepers in the zoo Copenhagen. I am glad the bear is in the enclosure again.
In the zoo Berlin it was Sango, who looked as "grumpy cat" :)

Yeo - Congratulations! I'm sure you had a wonderful dinner with the family.

Ralph - Bears - all kinds of them - are very intelligent and innovative! :D

Belij will have his paws full with Nuka and Qillak. They were already flirting with Nord last year.
I am surprised that Xing Er was able to leave his enclosure in Copenhagen. It seemed very secure. Fortunately no harm was done.
Happy Anniversary Yeo

Hello dear all!

Today is my husbands and my 36. Anniversy day.
On the afternoon we have together with our children a dinner in a greek restaurant.

Ludmila - Thank you for the information! I wish Belij a happy life in Pairi Daiza. Hopefully he will get along fine with Nuka and Qulaq.

In the Copenhagen Zoo there was a short drama this morning. The panda male Xing Er had managed to get out of the den. He wasn't trying to escape and after a short while he could be brought back to his enclosure. There was no danger neither for the bear nor the visitors.

Belij and Serij are both males. They are the kids of Dumka and Nord from the zoo Izhevsk in Russia. Nord is the father of the cubs in the zoo Copenhagen too.
As Belij and Serij were about 2 month old, Dumka got ill. She came out from the den and brought her babies to the keepers. The keepers cared about the babies and about Dumka. Dumka got healthy but she did not take her kids again. Belij and Serij came in the zoo Budapest as they were 16 month old.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Now all the polar bear cubs of this season have got names. Molly Merrow has made an excellent page presenting all the cubs and their names. If you want to refresh your memory here's the link to her page:


Britta-Gudrun - I wish Django a pleasant Summer time and hope there will be a piece of chicken for him every now and then. :D - I'm keeping my fingers crossed for 'your birds'!

Ludmila - I have forgotten if Beliy is a male or female .... do you know? Thanks for the news and also for the 'tour' in the Berlin Zoo in KWM!

I wish everybody a good start of the new week! Have a great Monday and don't forget to keep the distance!

Guten Tag zur Mittagszeit!

Es scheint wieder etwas waermer zu werden, aber die Naechte sind noch immer sehr kalt.
Jetzt schluepfen die Mauersegler Jungtiere so nach und nach. Da brauchen die Eltern gutes Insektenwetter. Drueckt mir die Daumen, dass bei mir keiner aus dem Nest faellt.

Ich wuensche einen guten Wochenanfang!

The polar bear Beliy from the zoo Budapest moved to Pairi Daiza.

Mervi, die letzten Tage war es zu kalt fuer den Biergarten "Unter den Linden" fuer Django. Ich glaube, er wird mir untreu, denn nur manchmal huscht er nachts in die Wohnung, um zu sehen, ob es auch noch Haehnchen gibt.
Trinken wir auf sein Wohl und das der anderen Fellnasen hier!
