A model village or town.

Not of a village or a town, but, yes, I guess you could say it's a model, because it's an imitation of a real building in Poland :)

Which building?❓

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego???????????

Yes! This building has been built entirely from LEGO bricks :)

PS:Are you real or a clone ?lol

✨I'm the only, real, original Paulina! lol✨

Btw, I've googled "Custard Apple" and it looks inside like cherimoya. Does it taste similar?

Which building?❓

Częstochowa Black Madonna Monastery? The one sieged by Swedes, defended and miraculously saved by Kmicic aka Babinicz?

what is this?

Looks like fruit called cherimoya. I like it.
PS. I didn`t look at your later answer, I knew it from my own experience.

@pawian, yes! It's the Jasna Góra Monastery in Częstochowa which contains the famous Black Madonna icon :) It was founded in 1382 by Pauline monks who came from Hungary at the invitation of Władysław, Duke of Opole. The monastery has been a pilgrimage destination for hundreds of years.

That LEGO model is part of a big, awesome exhibition called "Historyland" which depicts Poland's important historic buildings and Polish historical events from the times of Biskupin to the Solidarity times during the communism.

The most epic part of that exhibition is the Battle of Grunwald with thousands of knights :)))

This exhibition is placed in Poznań in Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie. It was an idea of three friends who are fans of history and LEGO bricks :) They even set up a LEGO store just to be able to import to Poland the bricks they needed to built all those models (over 1 million bricks). They've built the models in their garages with the help of historians. There's a store there too, so you can buy LEGO sets :)

I think this is a great idea and a fun way to teach kids about Polish history :)

katedra

ships

Grunwald

Sukiennice

Stocznia

@mafketis

it marks having completed a phase in constructing a house if I understand correctly - maybe the phase where you have walls up but not the roof - my knowledge of the subject is pretty superficial as you have probably noticed
Paulina 16 | 4,479
15 Aug 2022 #1,275
Huh, it even crossed my mind, because it looks like the building is under construction, but I had no idea that there's actually such a custom:

Good riddle, maf :)

This shell isn`t walnut`s but it contains tasty food, too.

Its little brother: And look at the surroundings:

With one riddle pending, let`s have another one:

This is special coz I don`t know the answer - what is this plant exactly? It is a quite decorative flower, all crimson. I found it in the field last year and collected the seeds for future use in the front yard.

I tried to google it out but without effects.

It looks like one of the varieties of Amaranthus.

I don't think they're native to Poland however there are some in r*SSia and of course someone could have brough some seeds.

It looks like one of the varieties of Amaranthus.

I checked it and still have doubts although your guess is much better than what I had found. Typical amaranthus has crimson flowers and green leaves, while my plant is all dark crimson.

But it must be it coz nothing else reminds it so closely.
Thanks. :):)

What can you see?



jon357 74 | 22,827

I think there's a relative of amaranth, a while family of plants even, called pigweed.

Some varieties have a red stem and in some countries they eat it.

But obviously don't eat it unless it really is an edible kind.

I don't know what this is, must be something exotic... The leaves look kind of familiar though... Is it a fruit or a veg?

What can you see?

Pieces of concrete?

What is this veg?

I'd say it looks like kiwano (horned cucumber, horned melon), but I thought kiwano is a fruit...

must be something exotic.

Of course it is, I wouldn`t show it if it wasn`t. :):):): Not so exotic as it seems coz it can be grown in Polish climate but it does need warm temperatures.

The leaves look kind of familiar though.

Yes, exactly, they are important coz they look almost the same as in the popular Polish veg. To get a better clue, look at the background. :):)

Pieces of concrete?

Yes, I see it is too difficult but I can`t show you another snapshot of this site coz I deleted it from my camera. I will be driving next to that place next week and will take a better photo. Sorry.:):)

Edit:

Yes, kiwano!!! Spiky cucumber!!! hahaha Very good. Congratulations. Polish women are the bestest!!!!:):):)
I sowed a dozen seeds but only one grew.
No, it isn`t fruit, but veg ,the same family as Polish pumpkin or cucumber.

????????



Paulina 16 | 4,479

:D

Ah, so that's why those leaves looked familiar - cucumber has similar leaves! :) Cool. 😎

Not so exotic as it seems coz it can be grown in Polish climate but it does need warm temperatures.

I've read that in our climate it has to be grown in greenhouse conditions.

Yes, but this year`s summer has been hot enough. I don`t have any greenhouses coz they require a lot of watering and I am mean as I already said.
