W lesie i w kuchni/In the forrest and in our kitchen


Tydzień temu wybraliśmy się na pierwszy wiosenny spacer – 16 kilometrów z Palmir do Wierszy (Puszcza Kampinowska pod Warszawą). Pogoda nas rozpieszczała – słońce, lekki wiaterek, płuca wentylowały się od miejskich spalin w prawdziwej tlenowej kąpieli;-)

Last weekend we went for our first spring walk – 16 kilometers from Palmiry to Wiersze (places located in Kampinos Forrest close to Warsaw). The weather was really spoiling us – the sun, light wind, the lungs were being ventilated from city fumes in this real oxygen bath:-)


Co tu dużo opowiadać, było po prostu super!
Briefely speaking, it was simply super!

O stopniu wiosennego upojenia świadczy chociażby pierwszy raz rozpięta kurtka w tym sezonie:-)

My unzipped jacket for the first time this year speaks about the level of spring intoxication;-)


Celem wycieczki było dotarcie do cmentarza w miejscowości Wiersze. Jest to miejsce pochówku żołnierzy AK Kampinos.

The goal of this walk was a cemetery in the village called Wiersze. This is a place where soldiers of the guerilla troops of Polish State Army were buried in the Second World War.



Przyznam, że moje zainteresowanie historią Polski skupiało się raczej zawsze na 20-leciu międzywojennym, II Wojnę Światową i działania militarne znałam tylko z grubsza. Jednak z tego co udało mi się teraz wyszperać w sieci, partyzantka działała tam do września 44 roku, gdyż wówczas miejscowość została zbombardowana w związku z Powstaniem Warszawskim.

I must admit that my interests in the history of Poland focused always more on the period between the First and the Second World Wars. I had to search in the Internet and I found out that the guerilla troops were located there until September 1944 when this place was bombed in connection with the Warsaw Uprising.



Na cmentarzu znajdują się 54 groby powstańców, ale zebrane zostały też w symboliczną mogiłę prochy z całej Puszczy Kampinowskiej.

There are 54 graves on the cemetery but there are also collected ashes from all the Kampinos Forrest.


Wątpliwe to pocieszenie dla poległych, ale cmentarz jest zadbany i wśród przyrody nie wygląda aż tak przygnębiająco.

It is a doubtful consolation for the people who were buried there but the cemetery is well maintained and it doesn’t look depressing surrounded by beautiful nature.



Niestety w lesie jest wciąż więcej zimy niż wiosny…
Unfortunately there is still more winter than spring in the forest…



A teraz zupełnie o czym innym - przenoszę się do naszej kuchni. Chciałabym się pochwalić pierwszym bochenkiem na zaczynie:) Jacek został naszym domowym specjalistą od pieczenia tradycyjnych chlebów! Takiej ilości rodzajów mąki jaką ostatnio mamy w domu, nie mieliśmy chyba nigdy wcześniej;-)

And now a different issue - we change place and go to our kitchen. We would like o present our first loaf of bread based on leaven:) Jacek is our home specialist in baking traditional breads. We have never had such amount of all kinds of flour before!:)

    I enjoyed seeing where you went out walking and what a lovely forest.
    Glad that you could get some fresh air and did not have to wear your jacket zipped up.

    You brought us a breath of springtime with your photo's especially the first. Thank you for the tour and the history of the cemetery. I am fascinated myself with the time period of late 1880's close to turn of the century and just before WW11.

    The bread looks delicious.

    Have a good Sunday.

  9. You are blessed to have such beautiful weather Ola, the photos you shared are wonderful. We are still covered in snow and I think today's the first day of spring... I'm going to have to check into this, maybe it's not until the 21st but either way, the snow isn't going to disappear within a day or two! lol

    The bread looks so good! Did it taste as good as it looks?

    Enjoy your week and your glorious spring!

  10. Ja też tydzień temu zaliczyłem pierwszy wiosenny wypad do Ojcowa. Było bardzo przyjemnie.
    Lubie cmentarze wojenne, ładnie wtopione w krajobraz. Mam na blogu jeden post o cmentarzach z I wojny światowej w Beskidzie Niskim. Cieszy to, że w większości te miejsca są obecnie zadbane, chociaż w przeszłości różnie z tym bywało.

    No, i gratulacje dla Jacka za ten bochenek chleba. Jestem pełen podziwu.

    Pozdrawiam.

  14. Your posts are always so interesting, Ola. An open jacket! Yay! Me, too. But then the temp dropped and today I found myself wearing my thick wool coat again...and boots!

    Gorgeous trees.... like grand ladies posing for the camera! You both look so happy walking the forest paths. Lovely.

  31. What an interesting post...
    The trees, the cemetery, kitchen window and bread! Eclectic! It really is good that you honor those soldiers by visiting the cemetery... they were all so young and had they lived, would be old men now... so sad...
    Please join me at my history blog - I'd love to have you!

  32. I must say the moment I saw pictures of a forest in Poland, I immediately thought of the second world war.
    Good to see that the graves are well maintained.
