As I view the reports from Glastonbury and the accepted mud on the BBC news the 36degrees C weather here seems a pleasant contrast. During the 40 years or so that we toured France and Europe on our motorcycle I was always told that the good weather began south of the Loire. Having been washed away in the Dordogne a few times that is not a proven scientific fact but experience shows it holds some element of truth.
|Warm weather equals more watering but the terrace flowers are starting to fill out the tubs and baskets|
|Then French 'gang' although Phillipe and Natalie are missing and Chantal is hiding in her chair!|
|Ducks take to the water at last although two can be seen on a mission to steal chicken food!|
|Two 'non' experts at work, making a fine job of fitting the new hood.|
|Don't mess with me!|
