August 2006

Late summer. Warm days, long evenings, green and leafy countryside.

long rides on Gypsy…..

along the route of the Tour de France, which had zoomed through Guémené in July.

Hydrangeas and lavender from the garden

Geraniums on the windowsill

The renovation of the15th century house across the street is almost complete,

and the the boulangerie a few doors up, previously a lovely soft pink colour, is being repainted in a bright yellow with orange highlights……everyone is extremely and truly interested in the change.

summer view from the terrace





….looking at the silhouette of the old barn chimney with its one remaining top stone against the fading sky

Then to Provence for a painting workshop with John Lovett ……in Arles

Doorway in Avignon







and Avignon

    and the magnificent Roman Pont du Gard
