sadly, not destined for the barbecue but to feed the beautiful Normande cows that produce the wonderful milk, camembert, cream and butter that Normandy is rightly famous for.  If you put good stuff in, you get good stuff out!  

Lovely gift from a happy guest!

We probably aren’t going to get too many bottles of white but they’ll make delicious table grapes when they ripen in early Autumn 😊

Fête Nationale!

Fête Nationale!
A fantastic day yesterday shared with our wonderful French and British friends - we celebrated France’s Fête Nationale (Bastille Day as we know it in English) with a picnic and barbecue under the apple trees in our French friends’ orchard - perfect!  

Delicious

Cherries

A perfect end to a lovely Sunday – we decided to pick some of the last of our cherries from one of the many trees in our garden.

 Destined for a fabulous Clafoutis – a delicious French dessert made with pancake batter and cherries – a kind of sweet Yorkshire Pudding! Try it – it’s fantastic!    Here’s Raymond Blanc’s recipe  http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/cherry_clafoutis_18623 Bon appétit!   

 

New Arrival

Goose
Our new baby goose is growing fast – almost before our very eyes!  Getting stuck into dandelion leaves!  Being very well looked after by Mum – Penelope and Dad – Monsieur Meldrew.  SO cute!
