Pictures of Autumn

10/19/2014

Hello friends. We have not been especially good at keeping this blog up-to-date as of late with stories from Vestlax Mellangård.

 

Sorry. It has been though an absolutely beautiful Autumn. The weather has grown gradually cooler as it should, and we have been grateful for so many sunny days. We have spent a lot of time in the forest both hunting and gathering which are both such beautiful ways to interact with nature.

 

We have also been busy. Very busy. Renovating, planning, and trying to figure out creative ways to use up all of the apples from our trees. It has been stressful, but the positive kind of stressful which kicks you out of bed every morning and keeps you excited for the day to come when going to sleep at night.

 

Before we get ourselves ready for our winter-sleep, I thought I could share a few pictures with you from our Autumn here on Vestlax Mellangård, I hope you enjoy!

We have started to clean up the inside as well to organise all of the stuff that was left behind. In this one Kasper is taking a closer look at the condition of the floor while practicing a new look for the camera :)
