The last part of August was still rather unsettled weather-wise, but the first part of September is turning out as beautiful as expected. On Friday, the 27th and on Tuesday, the 31st of August, my sister and I directed our after-work walks to Ludwigsburg's beautiful palace grounds and the deer park.
We love this time of year; the colours of the flowers and trees are so different to what it looks like in spring, and the afternoon and early evening light is just gorgeous.
When I arrived at my sister's that day to start our walk from her place, she had just finished making a batch of apricot jam. Not only is it very delicious (we love it with cheese), but it looked like apricot-coloured jewels against the light from the window. The photo doesn't really do it justice, but I've at least tried!
Now on to the deer park. It is usually rather busy on weekends, so we avoid it then. But on that Tuesday after work, it was just right, with a few people and many deer and sheep about.
I will tell you more about how beautifl September has started for me in my next post.
