What a day! We were invited to my friends Daniela's home on the lush green outskirts of town. The last time we visited her was to make Advent wreaths last November, a merry event which I posted about here. Today I was able to explore the sprawling estate under a hot summer sun, including a vegetable garden, an orchard, and a large swimming pond with water lilies and ducklings skidding over the lily pads. I didn't have my camera with me, so I took some images with my iPhone. I hope I can take more photos this autumn.
