Thanks, Benni, for the good choice of the theme! I like it as much as the banner for the week...Congratulations, Robert!!
Last weekend, I took the three photos below during my stay at a family farm, in the Alentejo, a region that's about the size of Wales. The region is Portugal's most important cork growing area. The farm is of the so-called agro-eco-system Montado. Montado is the Portuguese word for woodland of evergreen cork oak. It's very good for wildlife but it's by no means a wilderness but rather a natural ecosystem of woodland and pasture which has been adapted for farming in a sustainable way for more than a thousand years.
The first photo shows a window of a renovated gypsies' caravan that has been turned into one of the shops that the farm has for the direct sale of the produces.
In the second photo you see 'My new friend'
The third photo I would title it 'Light at the end of a hot day'
