Here we are, our Saturday walk on the hill (just on our doorstep!)
We are just blown away by the rapidly changing colours of the fields around us. Practically every other week, different set of blooms come out! I remember the yellow weed flowers two weeks ago, and now it’s the turn of the purples!

Our favorite walk, following the vineyard route on our doorstep!
these cherries will be ready in a couple of weeks!
Looking forward to more nature walks this weekend.
Our bountiful love for humanity that we cannot even think of hurting their emotions, unlike some extremist few who makes killing their religion.
This peony bush has collapsed to the ground because of the weight of the flowers, but I managed to raise them up just for this shoot.
Pine cone buds aplenty
Delphinium and poppies, with a hovering bee above
I must have a thousand daisies in my garden!
Rose buds, how I wish I could see them open before we leave..
A trip to town followed by a walk in the forest then another walk in the meadow before a quick puttering in the garden…. I am at a loss for words by the beauty of the world around me so just enjoy the photos!

Our village is part of the Wine route of southwestern Hungary

A rabbit or a deer? He went scampering across the road as soon as he heard our van approaching!

Wonder what this crop is??
Same crop at close up
Several years ago when we used to live in the south of France, I received a sprig of “muguet” (lily-of-the-valley in English) from a dear neighbour who, despite losing his wife a while back, went on with the French tradition of muguet-giving, and me, being a recipient of one on that very special day buoyed my heart immensely!
On 1st of May 1561 a bouquet of muguet was given as a lucky charm to King Charles IX of France. From then on, he continued the habit of offering the tiny and delicate flower to all the ladies of the court as a sign of good luck and happiness. This started what today as one of the most beautiful traditions of the country, that of giving muguets to one’s friends or loved ones every First of May.
