closing down for winter

Nights are getting colder, longer and kind of darker and we are finally closing down for this season. It is not that it isn´t beautiful wintertime that we close down. In fact I am astonished every autumn again. It is like an eye opener. Somehow you see details, nuances and feel fragrances much better in the clear and cold air and the “lack” of other colors. It now settles a calmness over the farm.

After a cold night the last leaves are falling down from the cherry trees. The sheep shearer  was here the other day and the ewes are shining like silver in the bright sun.

Also the hens are taking the opportunity to enjoy the last warming rays of the sun. Hope I won´t forget to close the door in the evening this time. The fox is not far away I guess.
