Colours of summer

Posted by cameladventures on June 6, 2012 at 11:10 AM

   

Yes, summer is definitely here.  I know that because we have already had a taste of what's to come...  boiling hot, sunny days followed by thunder storms.

If there is one thing La Creuse does spectacularly well, it's thunder storms.
We have awesome lightning strikes. To watch - from a place of safety, of course! - it really is like an orchestrated display to show off Mother Nature in her most powerful glory.

Talking of mother Nature in all her glory... the rose bush at the front of the house is looking particularly gorgeous this year.
And, the bulbs I planted in my pots are starting to poke their little heads through the soil.
Just keep your fingers crossed that everything grows well and stays alive throughout the summer. If they do, the front of the house will be a riot of colour and I shall be a very happy bunny.

As I am a very impatient person, I couldn't wait for all the planted flowers to grow.
I needed some more colour NOW.
So, I have put to good use the old milk urn we found in the barn.

         

I think our cat, Leo approves...

Hey you! Remember me???
I glad i finally found the link to your new blog.... always the last place you look ~ with all the other things I loose.... :))))
Your rose bush looks stunning next to Leo! Spring in France in general is looking pretty delightful!
Love the lambs!
You aren't going to eat the little ducks are you??? *gulp*

Hey yourself!
Fantastic to hear from you. I have been severely slacking on my letters front this year but have been thinking of you and keeping updated via your blog. In fact I bought you a postcard at Postman's Palace the other day (to put in with my next letter) 'cos I know you'd love the place & the story behind it.
Monsieur Escargot will explain more :)
We won't be eating Puddle & Pixie but are looking forward to some tasty duck eggs. Was that a sigh of relief I heard?!
Keep smiling.
Hugs from
