While I was watching our cats playing in the lane at the side of our property I overheard a group of tourists chatting outside the supermarket which is situated at the side of our home. Pointing at a temporary sign one lady asked the group “Do you know what it says”.
“No idea”, said the other people in the group.
So I turned around and explained that the Boulangerie is closed for annual holiday, but that they could buy fresh bread in the supermarket, and it is delicious.
The response was “Wow, you do speak very good English” !
You can just see the sign propped up against the wall on the right of this picture. The Supermarket is the building on the right.
As with many French village houses we don’t have much in the way of garden so we need to make the most of what we have.
This red rose bush is in glorious bloom at the moment, unfortunately we had a thunder storm here last night which explains the droopy flowers which took the full force the heavy rain.
Our living wall is nearly in full bloom.
A red theme continues on our veranda.
With a jasmine plant in the corner, the aroma fills the veranda with its gorgeous perfume.
Cleo found a cool and shady corner yesterday in temperatures of over 30C.
