Among other things, we went for a walk on Saturday evening, catching the beautiful sunset and enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside surrounding the village where O.K. lives.
Some views in these pictures I already showed you in this post in March and here in May - of course it looked different then; nowhere is the change of seasons more visible than on the fields, in the orchards and woods.
