|Praline the donkey and small bird on branch|
No, not Shakespeare but a wander around our little hameau this afternoon.

|Philippe's other well close to our house|
This is Philippe’s other well. He uses it quite a lot in summer to keep his vegetable patch watered. He has told Paul that he is welcome to use it too if there are water restrictions during the summer.
Paul covets that well. There would be something very reassuring about having your own source of water. This particular well originally belonged to our dwelling. When the previous owners bought the property back in the eighties they sold the well to Philippe. Seems like a strange thing to do but I suppose they never had plans to cultivate the land.
