And we are approaching the land of flowers, the sides, fields, hills and even in between the rocks ... everything is covered with flowers :D
sometimes all in yellow, sometimes purple, there in red and here in blue. Seems they are not all there ... most has faded ... never mind, it's so beautiful :dance:
