|My cat beats me and likes to fight all the time.|
|My flowers Larkspurs and poppies|
|I cleared a patch here of old raspberries.|
|The raspberries cleared I now have a bit of space to put something like lavender|
or at the moment more courgette plants.
Gite I had a viewing of too. For those of you who are unfamiliar with a gite it's a holiday home you can rent. It surpasses all your expectations of what that might be They have kept the original furniture including Grandfather clock, sleigh beds, armoires and buffets a large side board. All the pieces of furniture were special much more decorative and ancient than I have come across here. I was impressed to see items she found had been framed, an old sampler and the original inhabitants photographs greet you as you enter. I had a lovely glass of chilled Rosé and heard how Marion has made France her home never returning to The Netherlands. She has a lot of animals including donkeys, doves, peacocks and geese. There are 2 dogs that seemed to be lying low as I didn't see them this time and a cat. She as made lots of places to sit and enjoy the garden. The planting is relaxed with plants you would normally struggle to find here including a Bergamot I want to see if I can propagate somehow.
|The gite is to the right where the roof changes to the last door. Frederick has his atelier in the little room on the end. I realise I want to photo inside now as it is just so wonderful.|
|There is a large pond filled with lilies and croaking bright green frogs.|
