Once upon a time, this was red
Posted on June 7, 2023
This well weathered wooden door is to be found at the back of the charity shop where Madame volunteers. To judge from the framework, it was once a bright red, rather than a dusky pink.

At this time of year, everything is in full bloom and, although it has been quite dry, I was surprised to see this dessicated leaf lying on my driveway earlier this week.

They’re back. Not so many as yet this year, but still providing a vibrant splash of colour.

This set of five stone steps is a feature of my son’s house and that’s one of his mini Schnausers about to climb them.

The topic for Cee’s Midweek Challenge this week is ‘Imperial Purple’. I really don’t suit a toga so I thought this could prove to be something of a problem.
However, I remembered that at the Fête des Fleurs In Magnac-Laval last month I had seen this rather striking purple flower.
Underneath The Ivy

When I ripped off the ivy that was clinging to one of our wooden fences, not only did it leave behind the scars from the clinging menace, but it also revealed a hidden snail, which was probably only looking for a quiet life.

Boulangerie – Terminé
Posted on April 28, 2023
This – really very good – boulangerie in the village has just closed down without notice and no indication of why. At least we still have the local superette (which used to be based in these premises – hence the ‘Viveco’ sign), where the bread was better anyway, although not quite a match when it came to patisserie.
