You asked me the other day for some advise on rare bottles - my knowledge is limited but may I suggest the exceptional quality of year 1811 ...
And if you are a connoisseur - 1928 and 1948 Hine Grande Champagne Vintage Cognac for those special evenings.
and why not - a bottle of Laphroaig - Année 1887
and for Port a bottle of Tuke Holdsworth 1912 or 1920...

Waking up - another great day - a moth on the window...
"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
- Marcus Aurelius
Today a walk with nature...
After breakfast in the old library...
The sun is rising...
Shadows from the old trees - reflections of the past...
The air is cold and crisp...
Some frost on the ground...
"Society speaks and all men listen, mountains speak and wise men listen."
- John Muir
"If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not knowing, life would not be worth living."
- Henri Pioncera
"Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more."
- Vincent van Gogh
"Nature is beneficent. I praise her and all her works. She is silent and wise. She is cunning, but for good ends. She has brought me here and will also lead me away. She may scold me, but she will not hate her work. I trust her.”
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Sculptured by nature - a simple leaf of beauty...
Another evening and a walk in the park.
