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...
