When the owners of the house in Venta Micena moved here 15 years ago, they thought: “This place needs a forest.”
And thus they planted one. A beautiful one, looking quite natural and wild. It even has its own temperate microclimate.
It also has a practical use because of the fruit trees. Each day before I depart for a walk, I take a few apples with me. And I have never tasted yummier apples before.
The apples also make the forest attractive for foxes and wild boar, but so far, I haven’t spotted anything more ferocious than a cat.
