Tour de France

Tour de France!
For the first time since we moved here, 'Le Tour' is passing by us and what is really great it finishes in Limoges on Tuesday 5th July and then starts again from the city on Wednesday the 6th.
En route to Limoges on Tuesday afternoon, the cyclists pass only 10 minutes (by car)away from the gites!! We will be there to watch and cheer them on their way, enjoying a picnic and the odd glass of wine in a spot with a great view. If you would like to join us then get in touch to reserve your place and book a gite!!

Spring seems to have arrived at last, coincidentaly with the official first day of Spring, yesterday.  We have all sorts of spring flowers, We have also had the return of our temporary visitor, the Osprey. We are a bit divided about him, he's  a stunning bird but, just after I got this shot today, he went off with one of Brian's fish, I don't think it was one of the Koi but, I can't be sure!!!
The 'grues' (cranes) did their spring migration earlier this month so, it appears that things are on the up, as far as the weather is concerned - it's forecast sunny and 18 degrees tomorrow, hurrah.  Thanks for taking the time to look at the website and my blogs, hope you all have a lovely summer, when it arrives.
