The confused grasshopper

This grasshopper must have got blown off course, as it finds itself in the middle of an orange poppy in our garden.

Three windows

While in the great cathedral of Cahors, my eye was drawn to these three stained glass windows and their juxtaposition with the curve of the dome

The two arches

Cee’s fun Foto Challenge theme has moved onto ‘two’ this week.

This pair of arches are part of the church in the nearby village of Lesterps. Nothing to do with McDonalds

Who you gonna call….?

No, this isn’t my new smartphone…

Last weekend we visited the Chateau at Azay-le-Ferron. This telephone, now located in the kitchen, was apparently the first (so number one) telephone to be installed in the entire Indre département. Which of course begs the question of who could they call?

And the winner is….

Cee’s theme for her Fun Foto Challenge this week is ‘Smile’.

The nearby town of Le Dorat is hosting the World Sheep-shearing Championships next month and already the place is en fête in anticipation. An amusing feature of the preparations is the decoration of shop windows with paintings related to the theme, including this one.

As far as I know, the Mondial de Tonte, as it’s called, isn’t a sheep beauty competition, but the winner here is certainly smiling, even if the runners-up don’t look too happy.

Sixteen feet

There are sixteen feet in this image, captured last weekend at the French National Stud in Pompadour. Just as many legs, too.
