Late Autumn Mushrooms.

I picked this crop of red-cracked bolets on 28 November! They popped up in a place where I don't usually expect to find many mushrooms, not the good ones. And so late in Autumn.

Many mushroom pickers ignore them in favour of ceps and bolets. However their caps, while young, in my opinion are almost as good as ceps.

These went into a quick fry-up!

Normandie en automne. Un cèpe du jour.

At last, a few days of rain and sunshine and the mushrooms have appeared. Here's a cep (penny button) from today's catch.

Enfin, la saison de champignons est arrivée! Les Cèpes d'hier sont déjà consommés, voici celui d'ajourdhui. Et vous n'enviez pas! 

Наконец прошли дожди и появились первые грибы. Вчерашние белые уже слопали, вот сегодняшний. А вы не завидуйте!

Wind turbines and a church.

July. Country lanes.

July. Country lanes in dappled sun.

Nightmare to drive, can't see a thing from the sun into the shadows. /

Julliet. Les petits routes Normands sont beaux en plein soleil. Mais pour rouler, c’est un vrai cauchemar. Quand on est au soleil il est impossible de voir tout ce qui est caché sous les ombres.

Mortain. Summer in Normandy, 2016. +33º

Lunch in Mortain. I didn't know why they planted a yucca tree and erected a water sculpture in the centre of town, right in front of the cathedral. Today I discovered why.
+33 in our parts.

Déjeuner à Mortain. Je ne sais pas pourquoi ils ont planté un arbre de yucca et érigé une sculpture d'eau dans le centre de la ville, juste en face de la cathédrale. Aujourd'hui, je découvré pourquoi.

+33 dans notre localité!
