In August the annual 'meshoui' went off well and as usual we were in the thick of it putting up tables and generally helping out.
|The two sheep were roasting nicely to feed nearly 100 people.|

|It's free so everyone attends!|

Woodpecker visit: Our local green woodpecker has been visiting the cottage garden, we managed to snap a picture before he left for more wood pecking duties
The annual 2CV gathering took place during August. Visitors were welcome and as usual food and drink was on hand at all times!
The cottage garden has once again been entered into the regional flower competition. It's been a bit of an art this year, keeping them watered during the hot weather we had in the middle of the year. Luckily John was able to move the tubs under the plane trees to take advantage of their shade. The well provides us with a very useful supply of free water which helps too.
|The tubs and baskets were just starting to fill out when these pictures were taken.|
Can we thank May and Mike who were guests all through August for their recent review on Cheznous:
A really lovely gite with an attention to detail and quality which we have never seen before - and we've stayed in 50 gites across France over the past 35 years.
The owners, Maureen & John, are helpful, friendly yet discreet.
The crowning glory is the garden which would be the envy of most English gardeners.
Lets hope the garden has an impression on the secret judges when they visit.
Well that's all for now, better go and stir the fermenting plums!
