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!  



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!

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!
