A Summer's Day

A lovely summer's day, not too hot, not too cold.  Just right. A cycle ride this morning, lunch on the terrace, reading my book this afternoon.  I feel like stretching my legs now, why don't you join me for a wander around the garden...


A young aubergine developing - I love the black shininess.


The grapes are doing well this year.   They will ripen into a red eating variety.



 My 'folly'.  I liked the long vista this shot offered.


Campanula - a wild plant stolen from the woods.


Owl - courtesy of B&Q with a big price tag of £2.00.  I always like to bring a 'house present' out here each year.


The wisteria continues to flower throughout the summer.


"Do you fancy going to the spa tomorrow?"
"The one at Ax-les-Thermes?
"No, the one in Villefranche."
"There isn't a spa in Villefranche."
"Well I mean the Vival shop or the Spar shop, whatever. We need some more milk ."

  1. That wisteria is flowering on late. Lucky you having grapes and aubergines. Mr Him and I have conversations like that. Cross purposes. We burst out laughing then.

    1. I believe a 'Bong' is some type of drug paraphernalia.

  4. Wow, everything is so beautiful. The grapes, the eggplant, all those flowers....and there's still wisteria! Where I live wisteria is done by the end of April. It's just too hot.
