Any cheerful news today? (Nothing negative please! 🙂)

I was thinking in terms of using it as an excuse to wander east and find you with a boot-full of requested plants :rofl:
Seriously, we are hoping, come September to explore a bit more of France since we haven’t been able to for one reason or another (latterly pandemic of course) since we were both here full time. We have so much to explore but if, at some point, that includes your direction, I’ll let you know in case there are things I can bring :smiley:

Thinking about it - that includes @spj if we end up wandering in her direction - I know she’s a plant lover too!

I just love watching the baler in our field as it gobbles up the rowed hay and spits it out into huge bales.

You would be very welcome…as long as you appreciate that you would have to look at every single plant in our garden!

Had a lovely apéro dinatoire with my neighbours last night where we laughed until we cried. One of them bought me these lovely roses from her garden :smiley::hugs:

We have just had our appointment at the Prefecture. Quite cursory, apart from signing an Attestation that we hadn’t been out of France for more than three years.
We went to Grand Frais and I bought a crab which we will have for lunch with a lovely green salad of cours d’escarole, steamed green beans, cucumber and fennel.
Also today is our fortnight after our second jab.
A bottle of Pouilly-Fuisse to celebrate .

I’m so pleased! We have very tall trees leaning over the house. They are in a neighbouring farmer’s field and I’ve been trying to find him for the past couple of years to no avail as he doesn’t live there - he has a big farm in a neigbouring village. However, he has a very common surname and I haveno idea which of the people in that village he is. Today - success! The post lady chatted for a few minutes and mentioned the approaching storm. I said Iwas worried about the trees but couldn’t find m. XXX to ask him to cut them. She told me which of the many he was and which house he lived in. So pleased - why didn’t I ask her before, I wonder :roll_eyes:

For the past couple of years we have had a solitary female peregrine falcon living on the cliffs above our house…all by herself, and getting older.

Yesterday she had a companion!! Youpi!

Them doing acrobatics together was lovely to watch.
