Dear Family & Friends
Our village is small, layback and safe..and I like this!
The girls have been telling me about the forest they've discovered. They love going there on their bikes because at the moment it's blosoming with Elderflowers! You can just imagine the fragrance!! There's villagers going there to pick the flowers to make some Elderflower cordial drink too... but my girls weren't quick enough to join the harvest. For the moment, all flowers left are now too high for them to reach.
As you know me, I don't go very far anywhere...the farthest I go each day is from our house into our garden!! No, I haven't even went to the village fishing lake that they love going...and now I'm missing this forest too! My excuse is: mosquitoes lurking around the bush...I do have phobia of them!
Grateful for the photos the girls take home for me to see. From this forest, it leads you to an open field... This year, it's planted with sunflower!
Must be nice to go back there later on to see the sunflower field in bloom....ehem... another adventure trip for THEM! ... I think I will continue on enjoying the two sunflowers that planted itself in our own garden!!
If you're curious where the lake water comes from...well, on their way back, they passed a river/creek...From the balkans (mountains), water rans through river (small and big), feeding some lakes on it's way too:)
It's truly nice to be close to undeveloped natural environment... I think there's not many places left where you can feel safe for children to roam and explore freely on their own. For this, I'm very grateful indeed. :)
