a walk to celebrate the end of summer

DSC_0227 The colours are slowly starting to change and there's this crispy feeling around.

Being under the sun is no longer unbearable and we sense autumn weather getting closer. Which makes us very happy! It's been such a hot, dry summer - with a single rainy day in June.

We went for a walk to meet some chestnut trees that were inaccessible until we cleared a narrow trail leading to them last summer. We've kind of declared them part of our kingdom, but apparently so did the wild boars, so we'll fight over these chestnuts for the next few weeks!

All the beautiful terraces and steep stone stairs add something magic to this place. It's hard to imagine how it looked before, when everything was cared about and the now wild bushes were then vegetable gardens.

We need more people coming and taking care of these lands! :-)
