The grass is always greener

In my hometown... This is on the way to a small town, where my mom was born, with dirt roads that hide beautiful and calm small farms. When we visit, our favorite pastime is to drive to different villages on Sunday mornings. The green pastures and the quiet waters... they restore our souls!

Cris,
Sonia is right, this is a patchwork in tones of green. In other words, this is the real country patch!

Cris, what a beautiful scene. MG is really restoring. I also like to go to those regions. It´s like a canvas. Only the cows are missing!
