It has been a marvelous summer...

Let's dive into the magic summer days we had....

A day out with the boys with cooking in the forest.

Moritz and hubby gardening in Moritz's garden in Zuerich...

 The days in Moritz's garden were so precious and happy!

We walked in the mountains several times and enjoyed the superb landscape and clean air!

They made me smile all summer long!

A glass or two of summer wine now and then...
