Saturday in the sun

Walking the Jura

The horses were interested in us, but only from a safe distance. You can see smoke in the background where a farmer was burning wood that he had cleared from his land.

Here another farmer has the bonfire ready to go.

Daffodils grow wild in the fields. It is so beautiful.

This little dog ran past us without even stopping to say hello. How rude!

The baby cows were too cute all huddled together.

I see these mushrooms often in the Jura. This one was in a school yard but I have seen them on the side of roads just out of a forest. I think it shows the Swiss humor which I like very much. What a great idea to make an ordinary tree stump into a mushroom. Many times the Swiss will use large tree stumps as outdoor picnic tables with smaller cut tree stumps as chairs. Another great example of Swiss humor that we have discovered was during a walk in the Jura last July. Click here to read about it.

When the kids are bigger I would like to have the family ride bikes around the Jura together. Of course, we will stay off big roads like this but I think it would be a great way for us to get around as a family without having to take the train part of the way.
