Sunshine continued

Even though the temperature has finally dropped to more normal autumn digits – sometimes only a couple of degrees above freezing point at night – there is still no end in sight to the exceptional period of rainless days in our corner of the world.





While waiting for the rain and the winter mushroom (Craterellus tubaeformis) season to begin we have continued to visit the summer cottage every few days arranging and clearing the place out for winter even a bit more than need be just in case.





We will not know until sometime next year whether the lease will be renewed for next summer or not. The present owner has never used the cottage himself having bought the place a few years ago with the intention to build a modern holiday home there. Renewal will depend on whether or not his construction project will see some progress. Besides, I feel raking and the like are very good outdoor activities for me reluctant as I am to do any exercise for exercise’s sake. As soon as the mushrooms are springing up we will start frequenting the forest.

    1. Thank you, Barbara. I believe it is a question of construction permits, which are rather strict at a site like this so we are hopeful.

    1. Thanks you, Karen. It's starting to feel too chilly inside the cottage even with the coat on as it is not built for the colder season but we do like to enjoy the outdoor view there.
