weekend pleasures





A weekend filled with activities, lies behind me. Four apple trees produce quite a lot of fruits... We tried to grap as many as possible from the trees, sorted out the apples that dropped from the trees in the last days and brought most of them to an apple presses. Now we can enjoy "homegrown" apple juice for the rest of our lifes.
This weekend the yards of Unkel had opened their doors for public again. Artists from the area were presenting their works in a beautiful and pittoresque ambience of the old gardens and parks that belong to these villas and yards. The pink old house (above) in view of an old church is surrounded by a beautiful stone wall and wrought-iron door. I had recognized this house already last year, now it is vacant. (M. don´t read any further!) There is also a romantic out-house which would make a nice studio. Dreaming again...
We also had our first pumpkin soup this year, which means autumn is here and enjoyed delicious homemade pizza with friends and little Charlotte. It was also the weekend of our wedding day which we celebrated with yoga lessons and a special massage. Hello new week...

Happy anniversary sandra. Thanks for sharing these fantastic photographs. Fall came to Ontario this weekend at well and we made soup, picked mushrooms, started some knitting projects and pulled our woolen socks out of the basket.
