Inspiration: Village Green


 
 

I'm still here!
I've been busy catching up with paper work and preparing shop orders (thank you!).
And, of course, the weather has been so lovely the last couple of days, it's hard not to want to enjoy our wild, and slightly overgrown garden.

  

I woke up early this morning and walked round the house, bowl of French coffee in hand. Such beautiful light and shadows first thing (the first photo here is actually of the reflection in our pool!) 


I think this is probably the best time of the year here, everything's so green and alive. Soon the sun will come and scorch this Southern land.


I'm still walking round the village twice a day, as well as walking back and fro from school with the kids. I'm on a health drive and loving how I feel.



If only I had a bit of extra money to buy this property that has just come on the market. It's just down the lane and brimming with oldworldly charm - sigh!

Voilà, some local news from the sunny south.

à bientôt !

    1. I walk past that house 8 times a day, it's hidden behind high stone walls and I love it (only 200,000 EUR!)
