Fete at Luzy.The building here is the old school.

I have been unable to up load photos this past week. I have filled up my memory stick so have had to order another. Here are a few of the fete I went to yesterday in a small town close by. I was expecting a Brocante but it was a lovely display of local crafts and a plant sale from a few small nurseries, run mostly by hippyish folk. I bought some lovely Borage, Pulmonarias and a flycatcher. I bought a few old plates, jelly mold and dishes and then we spotted Indian Runner Ducks so we bought 3. They are adorable creatures, a bit nervous at the moment but very lively. They are in a little run just outside my window sleeping in a little huddle.
 May 1st is traditionally a public holiday in France where the giving of Lily of the Valley is done for goodluck. Here it is known as Muguet.
