A lovely blue don't you think!

Painted roadside adverts are part of French street life - but they're fading fast. Some were used to advertise very well known brands - cognacs and aperitifs for example. This one looks much more like a one-off, promoting the local newspaper - spotted on a housewall in St Martial de Viveyrol. And isn't it a lovely blue!

Sunflowers = Summer!

Sunflowers - just so cheerful... they never fail to lift the spirits... Enjoy them for for just a few weeks in high summer!

Saturday morning breakfast - croissants and a fresh baguette from our local boulangerie in Cherval - the best boulangerie we know!

Small luxuries

Just occasionally you come across lovely shopping possibilities... what could be better than 'Objets d'art, bijoux and vins anciens'... We spotted this in Aubeterre, a lovely village about 15 miles from Gresignac.
