There is something about bales. Coming end of June – July, and farmers start to cut first grass in the fields and meadows, to make bales in a few days time. We always marvel at how beautiful they look in the fields. Well, lucky us, we have them right down from our land and to … More ‘Cos it’s this time of the year again: Bales

Rain came last night and will likely to last until Tuesday afternoon. Goodbye summer and hello autumn! … More Goodbye summer, hello autumn!
First of all, thank you to those followers who actually emailed us asking if everything is OK. I guess, in absence of posts, some wondered whether we are still alive considering wife and husband (builder but nevertheless) are putting the new roof on their house themselves. Well, we are well, thank you. And very touched … More September Update
