Last weekend-at the little house on the prairie

I am sure you all watched Little House on the prairie when you were kids. I did and I loved it.
Anyway my best friend Gia and her husband recently managed to built a house quite far away from the city centre to house their love and four children. It is a beautiful house in the fields and all around it you can find trees, plants, flowers and pets.
We went there last Sunday morning to enjoy the day. It was fun!
At first we visited my Godson's little sea museum. He and his siblings collected shells and rusted metal parts from the beach where a ship had sunk about fifty years ago.




Then we walked around the farm with Gia seeing all the different plants. Strawberries...
Olive trees...

And inside the house paintings by a relative...
My cross stitched piece gift for the new house.
I loved the colours in this one...
Quince...

Almonds and walnuts...
We went away with a generous portion of quince and walnuts and almonds from my friend.

Hi Ariadne, we loved Little House on the Prairie, my daughter and I read all the books a couple of years ago so it was nice to return to them.
All of the walnuts and almonds remind me of my California home – what a lovely treat to take home these goodies.
Thank you for the sweet birthday message.
